Splash Screen [MIT AI2]

It was asked in the App Inventor Forum, black screen during 2 seconds at launch application.

Download

Necessary folders/files can be downloaded from here.

Splash Screen

If you’ve made an app and then realized that you would like a splash screen for your app
or that it’s a heavy app and causes black screen during start.
Then this may be the solution for you.

Screen1 Designer:
ShowStatusBar: Checked
TitleVisible: Checked
Sizing: Responsive
Icon: your icon image that we will use for the backrund image during launch of the app (icon size 144px)

and that’s all in MIT AI2, download and save your project.apk in ..AppToMarket_v41\myApks\ folder.

AppToMarket

Launch your AppToMarket and browse for your project.

Decompile

Features & Update Manifest
Select necessary features and update Manifest
Slider: Set it to Any

Edit Manifest

You’ll have to add/replace android:theme="@style/Theme.BaasTheme" manually in the manifest file.

android:theme="@style/Theme.BaasTheme"
android:theme="@style/Theme.BaasTheme.NoTitleBar"
android:theme="@style/Theme.BaasTheme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen"

Save Manifest.

and the last thing before you click the Create New.apk button

      Hi Peter,

      It has actually been on my to do list for months.

      I have been thinking about how to put it up so it’s easier for everyone to understand, but unfortunately I have not managed to get what I wish for now.

      Regards,
      Boban
