Slow Click/Touch Response in Cordova

I have a simple fw7 site I bundled into a Cordova app. When I view it on any IOS or Android device there is a very noticeable lag when I click on any link. This lag is not apparent when I view the site in a normal web browser. I have referenced all the minimized versions of the FW7 js/css. Any ideas what could cause such slowness. I have the apps installed into various latest devices from Apple and to others so doubt it would be a GPU/Resource issue. Any ideas?
