    Good Tutorial. Nice to see how async is so useful in saving and restoring navigation data. You could just mention that all these methods RestoreAsync, SaveAsync and RegisterFrame are provided to us by SuspensionManager.cs and someone who wants to understand what they do can just go to their definition. But nice to see session management being simplified beforehand for the developer.

    Step 1: Life cycle
    Step 2: Session data, Save & Restore
    Step 3: Application data, Save & Restore

    The way you switch between SuspensionManager and ApplicationData is very confusing. I had to watch this video three times to know when you are doing what.
