Hi! Today i going to share about Splash Screen. Yeah how to display splash screen using Thread. It not to difficult if you understand about Thread.

What is actually Thread means?

A thread is an execution context, which is all the information a CPU needs to execute a stream of instructions.

One way to achieve that is by jotting down the page number, line number, and word number. So your execution context for reading a book is these 3 numbers.

        Intent intent  = new Intent(SplashScreenActivity.this, BeforeMainActivity.class);
        intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP|Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
