  1. This example have two issues, because you create the new Handler() as you do here, you will not have the possibility to cancel it. Not cancel it will introduce two bugs. Fist bug is that if you close the app before the splash screen is finished the app will open itself again. The second bug is that if you rotate the screens you will create additional handlers each starting the MainActivity when it times out.
