The developer of Pop Corny recently posted a video demonstrating the time it takes to launch his application on the iPad 2 versus the PlayBook. The results show the PlayBook launches the app 30% faster than the iPad 2. While this doesn’t make a difference in-game, it’s a good thing for developers to know that users are getting their apps opened faster and jumping into the action. According to the developer, “You know [RIM has] done something right when it allows a developer that had never even used the platform, come in and port his game in 2-3 days. But that, coupled with the fact that the game actually runs better than it does on the platform that is was originally written for, makes for something really impressive.”
