Twitter app launcher with react native navigation

I was so excited when i saw a DEV community built by Nigerians. A brief intro of me, I am a developer and a YouTube content creator. I started my journey far back when we were able to use Waptrick to download games and creating an amateur website with Seeing this dev community is perfect unlike, I pray we continue to make an impact and tell the world that Nigerians can strife without the internet fraud and acts. Amen.

My first tutorial on this community, super excited, I am a lover of making android apps, so i will be dropping as many tutorials as i am able to. But for this we are going to be creating an android app-launcher splash screen with wix react native navigation, i would as well drop a link to the GitHub repo and also the YouTube tutorial once it is ready so that you can be able to have more understanding when you see them.

I suggest you have a basic foundational knowledge on how to use Java or react-native

Link to generate app-launcher icons

Check the Github Repo for the design files

  • Move the generated icons to


  • Create a drawable folder


  • Create a launch_screen.xml file


  • Paste this inside the launch_screen.xml file



    <item android:drawable="@color/splashBackground"/> 

  • Go to this


  • Paste this line of code inside item


      protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      public LinearLayout createSplashLayout() {
          LinearLayout splash = new LinearLayout(this);
          Drawable launch_screen_bitmap = ContextCompat.getDrawable(getApplicationContext(), R.drawable.launch_screen);
          return splash;
  • One more thing we can as well do is to add a background color for our splash screen, the default is white.

from the first step you can observe this line of code

` <item android:drawable="@color/splashBackground"/>`
  • all you have to do is go to this folder

      android\app\src\main\res\values, create a file named colors.xml

Start Or install your app again

Bonus: If you want to get rid of the white screen which always appear when the app is about to navigate or start Check it on my personal webisite

I hope admins can allow me next time to add option tags regarding every tutorial i drop :slight_smile:

Thank you.
