To make it faster, grab the user to all sorts of Tricks. One of the most popular: All the Apps through the Multitasking view to shoot down.

The typically consumes far less energy than an App restart. The Shoot will take not only longer, but costs even more battery. A further advantage is that the Cache of downloaded Apps are usually opened to the same place, they were closed. The user therefore saves additional time.
