View Full Version : iOS loading screen flicker workaround

15 Jul 2011, 7:39 AM
Wanted to share my workaround for the brief white flash seen between seeing a Web.app loading screen and rendering the app.

The iOS starting screens are all white .png and the real starting screen is the HTML background image. Since the white flash is the same color as the loading screen, it's not noticeable.

Is there a better way? I understand the white flash is avoidable as soon as PhoneGap gets involved.

I'm having the same problem. Has anyone figured out a workaround. I tried forcing the HTML background to black to no avail.
