    Hey BB10 lovers,

    Do anyone of you feel that boring or tired of how does BB 10 opens app?!!!
    Whenever, we click on icon, Home screen appears, active frame displays and app begins to open.
    When do we want to open another one, minimize it, Click on another app, Home screen appears, active frames...Oh...!
    Why it can't directly open the app like android or iOS does? I feel that it is quicker and seems very logical.
    I don't mention time, Coz, BB10 quite fast. But I do not see any logic behind, displaying active frame first before opening app.
    I prefer it opens the app first, then when we minimize, it would open up the home screen.

    If anyone felt the way I do, Sound of your comments. Then let's find a way to make this implemented in upcoming OS 10.3

    I guess its the same like on Windows.. Opens up in the window manager underneath then the actual window appears :\ I don't actually think it makes any difference in speed though! BB10 is amazingly fast...

    Oh wait... you mean on Ios and android, we can open up another app WITHOUT minimising your current app?
    Oh ish.. that is cool and fast.
    All this while, I thought the way I minimise current app and tap another app to open it is quick enough.
    Guess I was wrong.

    I agree. It doesn't make any sense to go to the active frames screen before opening the app. I don't think it serves any purpose.

    I think you didn't understand it, basically he means the animation of when you open a App it flicks to Active Frame screen and then the actual App opens. He wants it to open up directly like it would on other phones...

    Owh ok.. now I got it.
    That quick glance of active frames we see when we open up an app.
    I thought that was cool and not annoying enough to render useless or time consuming.

    Least it looks different than other OSes.
    And very quick too. And different.

    It gives the OS a "flow". It let's you know it's opened an app and visually gives an understanding of the location of where the app is open.

    Yes it does seem like a lot of steps, but I see why they did this.

    It just sets up the real multitasking that will work behind it when the user wants to open multiple apps.

    ^^ this is correct. BlackBerry was worried about confusing people. I think this animation will continue for a couple of more OS's while BB10 converts all the legacy users, but could be scrapped after that.

    Maybe it's just a trick to "decrease" loading times by distracting you. If removed, your apps would take slightly longer to start. Dunno.

    I've read a number of reviews mentioning the animation as being "unnecessary" as well.

    Android has developer options which let you speed up (or turn off) some of the usual animations. It'd be nice if we could too, though I do understand the purpose of showing what's happening to the user.

    Is that extra 1 second too much for you? But seriously, it only takes a second or two. Not a huge deal in anyway.
