Splashscreen when loading app

Could it be possible to incorporate a splashscreen while loading the app assets. Now you get a black screen while loading.

I know there are solutions but they require decompiling the apk. This is Bobans example on how he does that. http://baasapps.com/app-inventor/splash-screen-mit-ai2/

But making it available inside Makeroid would be a great plus.

You can add a full screen image to screen1 and then set a clock with a timer. When the timer finish you redirect the user to another screen

The idea is really good @Peter
I have tried today something but without success.
But i will look into it again because this would be really cool for all of us if this will be a makeroid feature :slight_smile:

You would still experience black screen loading on cold start, with my solution, you do not need an extra screen and it’s loaded immediately.

Unfortunately, I have not seen an app that is made with Ai2 or its clones that do not have a black screen on start.

No, in my app works well…


(Arda Çebi) #6

Waiting for it @Mika, yep: this is really a good feature.


(Boban Stojmenovic) #7

If it becomes possible then it will be good to have as a built-in component.

Good for you but can you provide us with an apk that demostrates this, as I mentioned earlier I have never seen it.

Sorry, the splashscreen is in the beta version 3.0 b6. Please update the app.


(Boban Stojmenovic) #11

Once again No, others can try it and see if they get the same behavior.

a longer video as well as a bug, when you click on the back button you return to the splash screen.

@Boban You are 100% right.
There is NO app without having a black screen (no matter how long or short in seconds).


(Maicol) #13

You can avoid this by setting a block “when back button pressed” and then use the block close app.

The final answer is probably this one:


#15

@Mika
So Bobans solution cannot be build into Makeroid?


(Daniel Fernandez) #16

The Splash Screen will be changed changing the apk Im making a tutorial to explain how to do it :smiley:


#17

I playing current with our source codes.
I have successful added @Boban method to show a splash screen on app start with the app logo in the middle at the screen with white background color.

Now I don’t know before we really add it to our sources, if we have to create a new option to let users choose if they really want a splash screen with the app logo on app start.

What do you guy’s say?


#18

Wow, that is great news.

I guess most users would love to see that something is visible on the screen while the programm is loading. But maybe an option for it would be good.


#19

If we make now the splash for everybody then I have not much work again :smiley:
If we add a option then I have a lot of work :smiley: :see_no_evil:

The splash on loading the app have white background color and in the middle is the app logo that the user used.

This is how the companion looks with it: (Yes on loading is no titlebar/statusbar visible)


#20

Why not make it that everyone has it. There is always been talk about the black screen while loading an app on every builder forum.
