Trigger.io - splash screen disappears, but webview does not load until I tap the screen

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I've got an android trigger.io app, which I'm using a custom splash screen on. Once this splash screen disappears, I sometimes am left with a black/grey gradient background while my webview has not loaded the content of my app (either a log on or a configuration page) This seems to happen more often when I'm attempting to show a Kendo UI Modal Window immediately (I'm using one for a "Welcome to the app" first time message), and less frequently when this isn't shown. Are there any known compatibility issues between Trigger and Kendo that I should be aware of to fix or work around this? (HowTos)
