Hello Crosslight Support,
I have a question about the startup time of an app made with Crosslight Android Material.
Your material samples and many of my own apps take about 4 seconds to start. This seems quite a long time to me. There are no heavy data loads or anything comparable. Reducing the latency time of the splash screen does not improve the situation.
Apps made with Crosslight 4 (no material design) take about 2 seconds to start. Many apps from the play store take about 0 - 1 second to start.
Do you have an explanation for the poor startup time with Android material? Or even better, a solution how to speed up things?
Thanks for your feedback.
Thomas and I investigated the issue further by comparing the start-up time of plain Xamarin app and Crosslight app. Two projects are created, they are:
By using these projects, we are going to compare the Android start-up time. Following is the start-up time measurement method:
Following are the results:
project(1): Xamarin Android Blank app with splash screenStart-up time: 3.16 second.
project(2): Crosslight project created using Crosslight Blank App project templateStart-up time: 5.03 second.
project(2): Crosslight project created using Crosslight Blank App project template with SplashScreenLatency = 1Start-up time: 4.11 second.
project(2): Crosslight project created using Crosslight Blank App project template with SplashScreenLatency = 0Start-up time: 4.07 second.
Based on these result, set the SplashScreenLatency to 0 or 1 will improves the start-up time by 1 second. We consider this as normal (compared to Xamarin app start-up time) since Xamarin also needs to initialize Crosslight assemblies.
Anyway, considering your results it seems that Xamarin is the bottleneck and I guess you won’t or can’t do anything to speed up things.
Thank you very much, Thomas. Have a nice day.
Sorry for the delayed response.
Your concern related to the startup time of Android app created using Crosslight has been forwarded to Crosslight development team. The report is filed under CROS-1130.
I'll keep this thread updated with any news I heard from the team regarding the progress of CROS-1130.
Any news about CROS-1130?
What about CROS-1130?
is there already a schedule for CROS-1130?
It should be "high priority" on your list because the startup performance is quite poor at the moment.
When will this be fixed? When will there be a new stable version of Crosslight?
