Subject Re: [Proposal - New Feature] Add tag to config.xml to handle images
Date Fri, 01 May 2015 16:27:19 GMT
What is the use for the images? Is this for a plugin, or an app template?
I can think of a couple ways to do this, but none would affect configure.xml. 
I suggest you look at how the splash screen plugin does this for android.
