    The question is the following:
    I already have the app ready, but when I open it, first a kind of dark screen with the title of the app (before loading the layout) comes out which makes the app not look very good.
    Any other App starts immediately and does not show that kind of delay.
    How can I solve that?
    I hope you have made me understand!
    Thanks for opening!

    The question is what you are doing in your app in activity_create which causes such a delay?

    Also activates the AppCompat library

    SetApplicationAttribute(android:theme, "@style/MyAppTheme")
    CreateResource(values, theme.xml,
        <style name=
    "MyAppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
