HI there,

there are some actions that start another app in the background. But there is no real user feedback for that or for something at all happening. E.g. when you download an email attachment and open it, the document app open if you tap on the name of the downloaded document. There is not hint, that the tap itself was accepted or that something is happening in the background (besides the fact that there is an error showing downloaded attachments: Other example: you tap on a link inside a twitter tweet in the notifications. No sign that the tap was recognized or accepted. No sign that the browser is starting in the background. Sometimes starting an app in the background takes 2 seconds and that is clearly above the 100ms human interface rule. In my eyes those are almost every time similar situations, so a general UI improvement could be made here.
