I added a Task.Delay(1000) to simulate a delay in launching the Forms Screen. If you remove this, there is no blank screen before loading the main forms page is loaded.
It seems to be if OnCreate is async and takes too long loading, you get a blank screen before the application loads.
If I remove "async" and run everything sync it works.

Can you put your delay in SplashActivity instead?
protected override async void OnResume ()
await Task.Delay(10000); // for 10 secs
I'm not sure why it's not working for MainActivity.
I went to all sync. Reported it because it was a bug.
