Mobile App scrolling glitching

Every time I ask ChatGPT on my iOS mobile app once it’s done printing out the answer the scrolling always gets stuck. I suspect this is because there is side scrolling so even the slightest scroll to the left or right when scrolling vertically it stops working.


I have the same issue. Whenever I’m trying to read an answer and I try to scroll nothing happens, takes two or three tries to work. Keep thinking I’m not touching the right area, but can’t figure out why.


Yes this has been an issue for me for months. It’s not an issue with sideways scrolling because when it fails to scroll up or down, if you keep your finger on the screen and attempt to scroll left or right, nothing happens either. It takes about 2 - 4 attempts to scroll. It definitely doesn’t work when you scroll slowly. It works better when you scroll fast.


thats what happens when u live on planet earth i guess


I’ve had the same problem for weeks now. Glad, at least, to see multiple other “victims” which rules out problem with my specific iphone.

I’ve asked Chatgpt about it but this is one thing it actually doesn’t know about.

Seems like an alien invasion – probably from the Martians; I’ve heard they’re up in arms over and highly upset and offended over some “peeping Elon” lurking in their neighborhood.

…anyway, I hope someone fixes this scroll ignore problem. It’s probably Elon, since he started Chatgpt – and he’s probably actually watching me type this and laughing his head off down in his secret Patagonian palace (he’s bought up quite a bit of Patagonia, I’ve heard…on Google’s Gemini…)

This is so annoying, once the scroll is not working, no matter where you take your finger, up/down or sideways, it doesn’t effect and vertical/horizontal scrolling, you have to take of your finger and try again, and it happens 95% of the times immediately after response is being shown.

It’s so annoying I’m considering moving on to other competitors.

UX/UI is so important here, these apps are so minimal, we do so much heavy usage with it.

A tad bit annoying I’d say

I am experiencing this as well. It is a frustrating experience and it is inducing stress.

I hope it gets fixed soon. Maybe ChatGPT (or maybe GPT-5) can help the devs come up with the code fix.

This has been happening for months for me.

I’m having the same issue. The scrolling is glitchy. Does anyone have a Way of fixing this? I’ve re-downloaded the app and that did not work

I was also facing the same issue. Use two fingers to scroll. Problem doesn’t persist with two fingers scroll.

Scrolling is still busted in June 2024. It makes the app very unpleasant to use.

I can’t get used to two-fingered scrolling.
