We all love the speedy improvements made between NoDo and Mango when it comes to app loading. But somehow, those Redmond guys have created a way to make that already fast app loading even faster in Falcon: Fast App Launching with Content. By using location and temporal access patterns (in essence the frequency the app has been used), the program is pre-loaded in memory before you even think about opening that app you love so much. While a lot of this is still heavy in the R&D zone, we hope to see it very soon – ya know in Apollo. It would make that game of Dodonpachi Maximum load so much faster, and I’m sure that’s something we all want.
