How to conceal UIWebView’s initial white loading view [#iosdev]

Thanks to this StackOverflow thread, I was able to conceal UIWebView’s intial white, “blank page” look while it was loading.

One thing you can try is put a UIView with the color you want and position it above the UIWebView with the same width and height. Then in the webViewDidFinishLoad method, set the UIView to hidden.

Hope it proves useful to someone else.
