This document describes techniques for pre-rendering new content for an application-selectable user interface. These techniques permit a user to select to view application-selectable tiles of the interface and, on selection, quickly see new content through the tiles in the selected portion. In some embodiments, the techniques pre-render content for a portion of a non-visible region of the interface rather than all of the non-visible region to reduce resource costs, such as processor and memory usage on a device and communication bandwidth usage on a communication network.
