What’s new in Splash screens?

We’ve recently made some changes to how splash screens are handled, to catch up with changes to iOS and PhoneGap. Where it was once one-size-fits-all, you now need to supply all the different sizes.

  1. Add ‘splash’ to the manifest.
  2. Add folder named ‘splash’ to your project directory.
  3. Add folders named ‘ios’ and ‘android ‘s the new ‘splash’ folder.
  4. Add the splash screen image files to the folders.

You will need different image files for Web Apps and PhoneGap Build – the sizes are not the same. Also, Android web apps do not currently support splash screens.

Here’s how it could look:
