Contents in this project Create Simple Splash Screen in React Native Android iOS App Example Tutorial:

1. Import Platform, StyleSheet, View, Text, Image, TouchableOpacity and Alert component in your project.

2. Create constructor() in your project, Now we would make a Boolean type state named as isVisible and set its default value as True. This state is used to show and hide the Splash screen.

3. Create a function named as Hide_Splash_Screen(), This function would change the State value as False.

4. Create componentDidMount() method in your class. This is a inbuilt method and called automatically when app starts up every time. We are using the setTimeout() JavaScript function to change state after given time. So it would automatically change the state value. Here 1000 = 1 second.

5. Create Splash screen view in render’s block and store the complete View inside let variable.

6. Create A root View in render’s return block. Now we would call the Splash_Screen with Ternary operator, If the value of State is True then it will show the Splash screen and if the State value is false the it will hide the splash screen.

  5. Hello sir,
    thanks for the code. it worked for me but I had a white area between the status bar and the splash and I don’t know why . can you help me please?

  6. Nice post, thank you!
    While it does not use the classic concept of an app splash screen (system-driven more than application-driven), it is a really simple solution.
    Are you aware of any limitations your approach might have compared to other solutions that require using the specific OS IDE’s (Android Studio and XCode) and/or additional splash screen libraries?

  7. How can this called be a Splash Screen ?
    Splash Screen should be shown at the time of App loading not after the App is loaded.

  8. sir navigation bar is showing with splash screen how i can hide bar for splash screen and show for home screen

  9. If i will go with this approach, specially in iOS, first iOS will show its default splash screen and then load our react native application. Does there any way that i can directly load react native page and avoid that white/black screen in iOS application.
