What are Launch assets?

Launch assets are defined in App Settings. They include the splash screen displayed when devices load the app and the app screenshots on your app’s page in the app stores. You can also blacklist assets for offline use so that they won’t get uploaded with your app.

Why use Launch assets?

The launch assets defined with your apps play important roles. Splash screens help with branding and increase your app’s attractiveness. Screenshots are required for publishing to the Apple App and Google Play stores. 

Blacklisting assets is one way of preventing your app’s file size from getting too large. See this article for more information.
