Android Creating Splash screen suggest change

Splash screen with animation

This example shows a simple but effective splash screen with animation that can be created by using Android Studio.

Step 1: Create an animation

Create a new directory named anim in the res directory. Right-click it and create a new Animation Resource file named fade_in.xml:

Then, put the following code into the fade_in.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:fillAfter="true" >
    <alpha
        android:duration="1000"
        android:fromAlpha="0.0"
        android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator"
        android:toAlpha="1.0" />
</set>

Step 2: Create an activity

Create an empty activity using Android Studio named Splash. Then, put the following code into it:

public class Splash extends AppCompatActivity {
    Animation anim;
    ImageView imageView;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_splash);
        imageView=(ImageView)findViewById(R.id.imageView2); // Declare an imageView to show the animation.
        anim = AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(getApplicationContext(), R.anim.fade_in); // Create the animation.
        anim.setAnimationListener(new Animation.AnimationListener() {
            @Override
            public void onAnimationStart(Animation animation) {
            }

            @Override
            public void onAnimationEnd(Animation animation) {
                startActivity(new Intent(this,HomeActivity.class));
                // HomeActivity.class is the activity to go after showing the splash screen.
            }

            @Override
            public void onAnimationRepeat(Animation animation) {
            }
        });
        imageView.startAnimation(anim);
    }
}

Next, put the following code into the layout file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/activity_splash"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context="your_packagename"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:background="@android:color/white">
    <ImageView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:id="@+id/imageView2"
        android:layout_weight="1"
        android:src="@drawable/Your_logo_or_image" />
</LinearLayout>

Step 3: Replace the default launcher

Turn your Splash activity into a launcher by adding the following code to the AndroidManifest file:

<activity
    android:name=".Splash"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar">
    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

        <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    </intent-filter>
</activity>

Then, remove the default launcher activity by removing the following code from the AndroidManifest file:

<intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
