Splash screen loading bar?


My auto downloads & installs updates before I hide the splash screen. The problem is though the user doesn’t have any indication of this…it just looks like a dead splash screen. Is there a way to display a progress bar as things are working? I already know about “show spinner” for iOS but I’d rather have an actual progress bar with some text about what’s happening. Any way to do this?


Kept digging and realized that ngCordova has a plugin for that.


It won’t work with

ionic serve

so use & it works like a charm. (the -l will allow you to live reload in the emulator)

ionic emulate ios -l


This doesn’t do it on the splash screen but is a native ionic option:
