  1. Hi Amit. Nice tutorial. I was preparing an android app using the phonegap child browser and found one issue. While accessing the app, it’s showing a white screen for about 30 seconds then then redirecting to the actual website. Just wanted to know, is there any way to overcome this.

    Thanks in advance

    • You are trying in imulator or in mobile ? In emulator it takes little extra time, on mobile devices its little faster i guess.
