I am quite confused between the AppLoading component and a Splashscreen. Could someone please enlighten me on that? Is the AppLoading configurable?
AppLoading is a component that you render as the only component as long as you want the splashscreen/loadingscreen to be visable.
For example if your are loading fonts asynchroiously.
See this for an example: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v19.0.0/sdk/app-loading.html
