First millisecond of clicking an app’s icon

by Anas Ambri

What exactly happens when a user clicks on an app’s icon? Inspired by the study of the first second of the big bang, we will try to discover all that happens between the moment your finger touches the screen, and the moment the app is displayed. This talk may or may not include concepts like dielectrics and gesture detection, and code snippets from the Android system. No prior knowledge needed.


I do freelance on Android & iOS, and I am on a mission trying to convince people to stop using splash screens.
