Bug Description

current situation:
I just flashed my phone, have few apps opened, and tried to launch the Gallery app from the Launcher. Instead of immediately launching the gallery app, I found myself seeing the app I was previously on rather than the Gallery app. I had to wait about 5 secs before the Gallery app came to view.

Desired solution:
When launching the gallery app (for the first time), it should launch immediately with no delay.

There is a plan to both speed up app launching in general and to provide an immediate image of the app when launching.
