Astra takes long time to start

Things run nice and smoothly once it actually gets up and running, but it takes a little over a full minute before anything happens when running the examples.

Same things happens when I build out my app in my IDE, it runs fine but takes an eternity before anything happens after the build.

OSX: 10.11
XCode: 7.4

I have the same issue. OSX 10.12.4.
