             Summary: Change the default Cordova splash screen to be more generic
                 Key: CB-12953
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12953
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-plugin-splashscreen
            Reporter: Joshua Bronson


Cordova's current default splash screen is heavily Cordova-branded. If this splash screen
accidentally makes its way into production (e.g. for some corner case that developers had
not encountered during testing), users end up seeing a totally alien logo/brand that has nothing
to do with the app they're using, and they can easily get confused and disoriented.

This effect would be significantly reduced by changing the default splash screen that is shown
when no alternative one can be found in configuration to something much more generic, e.g.
a black background with just a "loading" spinner, or the text "Loading...". (Even hardcoding
this text in English would be much more within users' ideas of "normal" behavior compared
to what they see now, even if they don't have their device set to English, and therefore greatly
preferable to the current behavior.)

Note, this was inspired by surprises like https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12947 and
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12952 -- due to such things, it's currently more
likely than it should be for developers to let the default Cordova splash screen sneak into
production. Therefore it is particularly desirable to minimize the impact to users when this
happens.

Thanks for your consideration.
