According to recent reports, a team of engineers is working on a software that is meant to ease the time apps take to launch.

The tech, which is called predictive caching and functions similarly to predictive texting, is developed at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Based on the user’s behavior while using the device, predictive caching will figure out a series of software routines, New Scientist reports.

It will then try to guess which step is most likely to be taken next in a computerized process.

The software is already being coded up by Tingxin Yan and his colleagues from the University of Massachusetts.

Yan discovered that the software could reduce the average app boot time from 20 seconds to merely 6 seconds.

However, it also cuts 2% of the battery life per day.

What do you think? Would predictive caching be a useful iPhone or iPad app?
