Entering multiple values using code in a single field


I work in transport incident management and the idea occurred to me that, when creating an incident, instead of tabbing through fields and completing values (either using the dropdown arrow or keyboard) operators could enter all information into a single field using simple recognised codes and separating the codes with a space.

Guidelines for support documentation for apps

Hi Gurus!

I am currently starting to work on creating a pleasurable user experience for support documentation for an app. This app has versions that run on an iphone, android, mac as well as a windows OS. 

Are there any guidelines or specs for creating such documentation? 

Any light that you can shed on this will be very helpful.

In late 2013, what is a reasonable startup time for an iPad app?

Looking for research or commentary on what makes for a reasonable start up time for an iPad app.  Obviously, it depends on the processor (iPad Air i.e. iPad5 will be much faster than an iPad2 or iPad Mini), the connection speed, and the size of the app.  But say all of those factors are controlled/averaged...what is the amount of time a normal user would consider normal, reasonable, long, or rediculous to startup an iPad app?

Much of it is the expectation of what the app is giving the user, so I would love to hear how to manage that expectation as well.
