Hour 7. Implementing an Animated Splash Screen

In this hour, we focus on implementing the splash screen of the Been There, Done That! application. After roughly sketching the screen design, you can determine exactly what Android View controls you need to implement the splash.xml layout file. When you are satisfied with the screen layout, you can add some tweened animations to give the splash screen some pizzazz. Finally, you need to make sure to transition from the splash screen to the main menu screen smoothly after your animations have completed.
