Increase the List View performance

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have a list view with around 15 items in it. Now in the getView(): @Override public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) { //blah blah blah File file = new File(context.getDir("data", Context.MODE_PRIVATE), fileName); } So now the problem was when i scroll the list view its smooth and when i perform some operation by selecting that item in the next activities and store it and when i come back to the list view screen, at that time when we try to scroll the scroll is not smooth, then i came to know that its because of this line: File file = new Fil (HowTos)
