It's also still slow to load the Mapbuilder tiles at the appropriate resolution - it takes a little bit to fill in and then resolve into whatever level of zoom you're using. (This also happens with the Mapbuilder layer on the website, so it seems like it's something to do with Mapbuilder itself.)
Did you pre-load the map tiles to your phone, or were you relying on wi-fi or cell network? Normally you would have the pre-chosen tiles and layers cached on your phone so you could use the maps in areas without wi-fi or cell coverage. That should speed things up.

It's slow in both, mostly when you move the map to a completely new area. I have the tiles presaved; the phone I use outside is an old phone I've dedicated to hiking that doesn't have service. I also have the Caltopo app on my regular (newer) phone and just turned off wifi and tried it with saved tiles and it did load and re-resolve a bit faster, so it may also be that my old phone is just too old and slow now (which is the case with other apps it runs). PDF maps are still basically instantaneous though since the whole map is one picture it loads at once.
