is it possible to load SVG animated splash screens on app load, instead of PNG ?
From what i know - no. both iOS and Adnroid support static splash screens
Last time I checked, splash screens are static.
In the past I used a trick similar as described by Amer Hukić here. Basically he starts an animation in the first view that becomes visible and uses a splash screen image as the “first” frame of his animation. Instead of an animated GIF, other kinds of animations are possible too but it is still not during “splash” time.
