Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (CB-1495) iOS default splash screen images take up several megabytes
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 21:03:58 GMT
Yeah, these files are intended to be overwritten by the app developer

graphic assets.
I think we should even go so far as to add 'placeholder' text, so that
people know that they should replace them.
