WP8 Fast Resume from the start screen demoed using the Facebook app

Dhruv Bhutani has uploaded this video to YouTube demonstrating the new Fast Resume from the start screen feature in Windows Phone 8.  As can be seen in the video, if the developer enables it, users will be able to hop into and out of an application without having to return to the start of the application over and over again.

The feature will not be enabled automatically in all apps, but will need developers to make some small modifications to their apps.

We understand that developers can enable more sophisticated behaviour, such as doing fast resume when an app has been opened in the last hour, but resuming from start if the app has not been opened in a day for example, which should satisfy those who want it either way.
