The <splashScreens> element specifies the image file to display when the application launches on the OS on device.

You can specify the splash screens to use as well as different splash screens for multiple devices and different locale or region settings. The image file for the splash screen must be:

  • A PNG or JPG file
  • The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device supports a 1280 x 768 screen resolution. Other BlackBerry 10 devices will support two screen sizes: 1280 x 720 (16:9) for full touch screen devices, and 720 x 720 (1:1) for devices with a physical keyboard.
  • If the expected size for splash screens do not match the tablet or smartphone at runtime, the splash screen chosen is based on the best-fit size for the device and is upscaled as required.
  • The path of the image can be in the application root folder.
