Perhaps your application needs to store some essential information with the goal that the principal screen has some substance for the client to see. Perhaps the user should be verified again in light of the fact that they haven’t utilized the application in some time. Possibly some key pictures should be fetched from the server before that first screen shows up. Whatever it is, the splash screen is an ideal spot to do this.
