No cheating:

  1. click an app
  2. wait for app to appear
  3. app appears
  4. look at app screen, decide where you want to click
  5. click etc.

Time in step 2 is wasted and frustrating to the user


  1. click an app, get cached app screenshot
  2a. app starts up in the background
  2b. look at app screen, decide where you want to click
  3. click etc.
  4. wait until app finishes loading and reacts to the click

There is a possible wait in step 4, but it is usually shorter.  Win!
