Fast Application Switching is perhaps the most exciting developer feature in Windows Phone Mango. With FAS, applications stay in memory after deactivation, which makes resuming the application nearly instantaneous, greatly improving the end user experience. All you need to do to get access to using FAS, is to upgrade your project to target Mango, and recompile.

Right now, I can hear you thinking: "that's great Larry, but how do I add fast application switching to MY application; what are the details you aren't telling me about?"

Well, i'm glad you asked. We had our good friend Alex Golesh from Sela make this video to walk you through all the detail.

Please let us know if you have any questions!
