I was preparing my WP7 Silverlight app for publishing, and started to conduct tests in Marketplace Test Kit in VS. When I started Launch Time test in Monitored Tests group, result was 5-6 seconds time for launch (5 seconds is time launch limit for passing
Marketplace Application Requirements; 5.2.1
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh184840(v=VS.92).aspx). Which is strange since my app runs in one second. I started with some code optimization but no improvements. I even commented all code except InitializeComponent() call, and results were same.
My app is not complex; it is Pivot app with three pivot items, one Bing Map, location and network services and some number of usual WP7 controls.
I am simple confused with this MTK behaviour. Definitely Launch Time test does not provide real results (1 second in reality and 6 seconds in test), and seems that Bing Map Silverlight control cause this inconsistence. I don't know how any app with maps
can pass this requirement if test are strange like this one. Does anyone notice same behaviour? I use LG E900 device.
