Is GameSalad Viewer laggy by nature?

So, I'm trying my gamesalad game on my android device and it's a bit laggy here and there... Is this an exact representation of what it will be like when the game is published and made into a file? Or is the gamesalad viewer known to be laggy by nature?

Thank you

P.S. it's a lot smoother when I try it on my Mac computer.

    Android viewer is a bit laggy yes , depending on the device the results may be different , but the published game has better performance than android viewer. If your testing on an older device the lagging might happen every few seconds even with the published game. by old i mean galaxy s4/s3 and less.This happened after they introduced custom collisions. Newer android devices can handle GS games better. GS has excellent performance with ios/mac games but it needs more love when it comes to android. If you want to test GS performance try downloading some of GS games on your device , try new games that were published with the latest version.
