Performance: pre-instantiate activities on app launch? Good practice or not?

 Thanks for your reply Dianne.

As to profiling, I looked at traceview, but seems to be a bit overly
simplistic to actually profile a whole app. What I understand from the
documentation, what it actually does is measuring the time it takes
for a single method to complete. That's not a terribly useful
information if you want to see the big picture, however (i.e. get
answers to questions such as: how much time does the app spend in
which parts of the code base?).

Are there any plans to make traceview a tad more capable? That would
be great news!

2. Any advantage to NOT posting ADC2 entry in marketplace now?

Now that my submission to ADC2 is complete, I'm wondering if there is
any advantage/disadvantage to holding off on posting to marketplace
now.  Things that occur to me:

1. If I post to market, and people download in the mass quantities
that I expect them to :), will they be less inclined to spend time
reviewing the app in the ADC2 context?

2. What happens to people that download from marketplace and then also
get the same app (with different name) from ADC2?  My app involves a
background service and notifications.  This could make the judging
difficult with notifications that are identical in appearance, but
being generated from different versions of the same app.

3. Will there be any TECHNICAL relationship between an ADC2 entry and
a marketplace submission.  My understanding is that I would need to
change namespace, so I'm guessing no -- they are effectively different
applications at this point.

4. Are marketplace results in any way included in judging criteria?
My read of the rules says "no", but just wanted to be crystal clear.

Thoughts or opinions?
