iPhone App Loading Screen

by Andrew De Ponte (@cyphactor)

Hi all. If you don’t know already I have been playing with some iPhone app development pretty heavy lately. One of the interesting things which was some what more difficult to find was how to create a loading screens in iPhone apps. After I bit of googling and some reading of different forums I finally narrowed it down. It is handled automatically if you simply created a PNG file called Default.png that is 320 x 240 pixels with a 160 ppi and place it in your projects Resources file. Once in you Resources it will be displayed during the time that the application is loading. If you need to extend the time to get your splash screen to stay on the screen because your code is god like and fast simply tack a sleep or something in your applicationDidFinishLaunching method.
