Previously, there was an issue with black screen for 2 seconds when starting the application and since MIT AI2 have introduced Themes, this issue has disappeared however, there are certainly some of you who still want Splash Screen in you app.
Stay tuned as I’m working on fixing a new updated version however, only for Builders that support Themes.
NoticeKodular has it built-in..
New version AppToMarket 4.1 which doesn’t require Internet connection
MIT AI2 release (nb144)

Then this may be the solution for you.
Icon: your icon image that we will use for the backrund image during launch of the app (icon size 144px)

Launch your AppToMarket and browse for your project.
