  • Is there other way to make Splash-Screen more Richer ?

    I want to design the the Splash-Screen like use a page(can use XAML layout)? I'll do more things? how can i do it?

    Not use like as following:

    <VisualElements DisplayName="consumewebapi" Logo="Assets\Logo.png" SmallLogo="Assets\SmallLogo.png" Description="consumewebapi" ForegroundText="light" BackgroundColor="#464646">
           <DefaultTile ShowName="allLogos" />
           <SplashScreen Image="Assets\SplashScreen.png" />
    </VisualElements>

  • The splash screen shows before your app's code runs so there isn't any opportunity for the app code to modify or enhance it.

    Once the app has loaded and started running it can show an extended splash screen which it can modify and enhance however you'd like. See How to extend the splash screen (XAML)

  • Just from my experience, users hate to see splash screens. It tells them that the app is slow to start.

    I had an extended splash screen before to initialize some stuff.  Got several hate mails my users about how slow the app starts up.  After I took out the extended splash screen and instead put in a busy indicator, the complaints have stopped.

  • I agree with your point.

    This is a great initiative!

    how do you do about the extended splash screen? Are you using Microsoft's SplashScreenSample?
