Clearly, Google missed a trick and is now putting it to rights with the new splash screens on loading.

Well this is an interesting change for Google. The company is one-by-one rolling out updates to its in-house Android apps that include splash screens. These screens (screenshots via a user on Reddit) are displayed during the 2-3 seconds between tapping an appsí icon and the app actually loading.

Itís an interesting change particularly because Google was in the past very adamant about developers not using splash screens, but rather displaying a non-functional, or blank, UI to make it obvious that the app was open and loading.
