I have three apps in the iTunes store now... 1 has a 'splash' screen, 2 don't... I think that the choice is yours... It is probably a good idea to have one if your app takes a while to initialize..

> Question for anyone who has dealt with this. Is it customary to do About screens in mobile apps (iOS and Android)? Just curious what the norm is. Does either platform have restrictions or guidelines regarding this? I've seen several iOS apps with About or Info screens, so I'm assuming it's just a matter of preference what devs do.
