💡Improve your loading screen.

📚According to studies done by Google, delays as small as 200ms push users away, so if your website/app is already going to take some time to load, make it either entertaining to watch or at least show a preview of what it’s loading (Skeleton view)
☠️ Skeleton views are used to indicate that a screen is loading, they are perceived as being shorter in duration when compared against a blank screen and a spinner.
🏃♂️When designing skeleton screens, I recommend using motion to further decrease perceived duration time. Companies that do this very well are Youtube, Google, Linkedin and Facebook. If they are doing it, why aren’t you?
🧠 Hope this helps!
