  • I have seen that your app is quite big, that is one of the main reasons.

    Try to reduce your xap file size using library assembly cache (included within visual studio) or any other method, you can find some info around the forums or google.

  • Consider using PRISM or other technologies that let you load parts of your application on demand.   

    Also, you server/network connect seems a bit slow.  You want to check those to see if there is an issue.
