I Hate Splash Screens

by Nikolozi Meladze

Brent Simmons:

Here’s the thing: there’s no way to do an animated splash screen unless you delay the appearance of the app UI. While the app is being launched, the system displays a PNG file provided with the app. It can’t be animated.

But you can animate once the app is actually loaded. What people asked for is that we then display an animated splash screen, and delay the appearance of the user interface.

Yuk.

I didn’t do it.

Good man!
