How Do I Set-Up My App's Splash Page?

These are the instructions for setting up your mobile app's Splash Page. The Splash Page is the first image that is seen when your app is opened by your listeners/members

This Article Is For:

  • Users who have been given permission to manage Mobile App Settings

Requirements:

  • Station/brand have already purchased the SoCast Mobile App package
  • Have been given the above listed permissions by your SoCast Account Manager.

Features:

  • Splash Pages appear instantly when the app is opened
  • Can be changed often
  • Guarantees that the listener will see it.
  • Splash ads work best in conjunction with other sponsored content such as: contests, events, shows, special guests etc

Tips:

  • We recommend setting your Splash Page for around 6 seconds, and no longer than 10 seconds. Otherwise your users will assume the app is not loading and abandon it.
  • Make sure your Splash Page is updated frequently
  • The Splash Page doesn't last very long. So no need to put long text on it. Your users won't have the time to read it.
  • Anticipate how it will look on devices. It displays in portrait view on devices, so it should not be designed horizontally.

  • Make sure to use an image that is easy to understand and easy to read
  • Can be used to sell sponsorships of entire app
  • Can be sold by duration (ex. one month)
  • Due to growing fragmentation in device screen resolutions and aspect ratios so there is currently no single dimension that will work for all or most devices.
