As you can see it has minimal branding and does not support any customisations. The Zappar branded splash screen is perfect for many use cases, but is not appropriate for some customers’ projects.

Lite Branded Splash Screen

The Lite branded splash screen has a neutral white and black branding by default, and allows customisation of the logo and title of the text. In the example below, we have uploaded a generic logo, and included ‘Company name’ as the title.

Configuring your Lite Branded Splash Screen

In order to launch your project via a Lite branded splash screen, you first need to create and open a ZapWorks Studio or Designer project on Once created and opened, follow the steps below.

The Lite branded splash screen uses our standard privacy policy. If you require a custom privacy policy, check out our custom WebAR sites.
