      Description

      The app shows the splash screen on start. I want to close it programatically using this.platform.exitApp(); and after opening it again, I want the splash screen to apear again. The default behavoiur is to show the splash screen for the first run only, and if we close it the way mentioned, the subsequent openings will not show the splash screen.

      To override that I used <preference name="SplashShowOnlyFirstTime" value="false" />. Using this, the app shows splash screen for the first time and when close the app as mentioned, and try opening it again, while it is still available in recent apps, the app crashes most of the times reporting this in ADB:
