Splash Screen in Xamarin.Forms cross platform app (Android & iOS)

Practically there is no way to show Splash Screen/ Launch Screen using Xamarin.Forms because Xamarin.Forms libraries load after loading of AppDelegate (iOS) or MainActivity (Android) is completed. There is no point in showing splash screen at this point of application lifecycle because splash screens are meant to be displayed while app libraries are loading and we don’t want to show users a blank dark screen.

Keeping that in mind we have to configure it separately in each platform. Our splash screen will contain a solid colored background and a logo placed on center of the screen. Follow below links for detailed walk-through to add splash screen on each of he platform.
