Subject Re: UX / UI: New Splash Screens & Icons
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2014 10:20:34 GMT
Hi Jessie,

actually the new versions are less in size, and of course all repo app assets will be 
replaced as well, that was the main reason for doing this. As of now, the blue one will replace
the mobile-spec
splash, and the light one the standard one.
