I am using web content layouts to make sure my animations are shown on the iPad. If I display the magazine on an iPad, I can see a loading icon on opening the page, right before the animation starts. Is it possible to remove this loading icon?

I don't know. But what I know is, that loading animations are a good thing for users to see that something is happening. If you take away the loading button one could think the ipad has frozen. So from a usability point of view I would keep the animation. –  Kaspar Jan 16 at 12:50
    
I have several animations happening at the same moment. Loading takes less than a second but long enough to notice the loading icon. I get your point but since I have a lot of small animations it just really takes away the beauty. You wouldn't see those loading icons if you'd use the native animations. But I can't use them because I wan't these animations to work on iPads. –  Bart Burg Jan 16 at 14:39
    
I see. Well sorry I'm of no help. –  Kaspar Jan 17 at 12:42
    
Can you push the animations off the page while they load, so they're somewhere OFFSCREEN until they're loaded and ready to play? Use like an "OnLoaded" to change their rightful position when they're ready. Alternatively, can they be Z-order hidden until loaded? –  Confused Feb 20 at 11:37
    
Flying in animations show a centered loading icon. It's an interesting idea though. I will have a look at it. –  Bart Burg Feb 20 at 11:46

As far as I know, the answer is no. I haven't seen this mentioned in any documentation online.
