Home Screen is the first app screen through which users can engage with the app. This is the screen which provide the entry points of the app and help them explore the other pages within the apps and its content.
Home screen image is placed in the background of the home screen behind the buttons which help the user to navigate to different pages within the apps.
Just like the Splash Screen, the Home Screen image size also depends on the Mobile device’s resolution. To have a proper looking Home screen, the user needs to consider the aspect ratio of the devices that they intend to view the images on.
For iOS devices, the recommended resolution for image upload is 1242x2208 and for Android devices , the recommended resolution for image upload is 1280x1920. Home screen image has a smaller size as compared to Splash screen because of the App bar and Mobile Status bar height, however the aspect ratio of the image still remains manageable to give proper image view.
