ionic pro live deploy: slow launching time except when initial launch from playstore/appstore
I built an app using ionic and used ionic pro live deploy with UPDATE_METHOD="none". Everything works fine: checking, downloading, extracting, and redirecting seems fine.
However, I observed that whenever I launch the app with updated version (version from ionic dashboard), the app starts very slow. Unlike when it was initially launched.
Initial launch (fresh from Playstore) takes 4s-5s. Launch after checking and downloading version in ionic dashboard takes >20s.
The apk/ipa file was built using the source pushed in git.
Here is the ionic info
