Apps Comparison WP7.5 vs WP8

| October 30, 2012 | 23 Replies

Here’s a quick video Dhruv from FoneArena posted comparing the official Facebook app running on Windows Phone 7.5 against Wp8. The point of this video was to show the differences in Active resume between apps; where in 7.5 tapping the live tile/application in menu would restart the app all over again and cancel any progress, while in WP8 re-entering the app from the tile picks up from where you left off rather than restarting. One other thing I noticed was the massive difference in application loading speed; the Facebook app for 7.5 is amazing, but it’s downfall is the super long loading time (~5 seconds); this seems to have been fixed with WP8 where the app loaded almost instantly.
