Application startup should follow these usability guidelines

  1. Starting an application should not take much time, ideally 4-5 sec should be OK. If the application startup is taking more time, a splash screen with a progress bar should be provided.
  2. During startup if any audio/video clip is played, the user should be able to control the sound.
  3. High priority system events like incoming call should be given priority.
  4. Low memory conditions should be handled properly.
  5. By default, application should not start by its own. If the application features auto-start at reboot, users should be given an option to reset this behaviour.
