Are you annoyed with the time that applications take while launching on your Windows Phone? No more, as the mobile computing research center of Microsoft is working on a project to save you from the trouble.
Named FALCON, which stands for Fast App Launching with Context, the system constantly checks when and where a user uses specific apps so that it can guess when he/she is likely to use them next.
Commenting on the new project, Microsoft said, "We have designed and built Falcon to remedy slow app launch. FALCON uses context such as user location and temporal access patterns to predict app launches before they occur." The concept behind the project is that if the user’s phone knows which app he/she is about to run, then it can get the app ready, speeding up the launch time without asking for the need of more powerful smartphones to do it.
Currently FALCON is implemented as an OS modification to Windows Phone, although there is no word on whether it will become an embedded feature in the future versions of the Windows Phone operating system or not.
