Android Library to Smooth the Progress Bar in Your App

If you are an app developer, you more than likely use many external libraries created by other developers. These libraries can be used to beautify your app’s UI or simply add some new features. One of the most visible parts in many different types of applications is the progress bar, which of course can be improved, as practically everything else in the most popular mobile operating system.

Android is not Holo blue only, and can benefit from a variety of colors. And thanks to a library by XDA Forum Member Castorflex, your progress bars can be a testament to this. With SmoothProgressBar, it’s possible to completely change the look of the basic progress bar. The library changes the animation significantly, and the process is thoughtfully explained in the author’s blog entry. If you want to see the library in action, there is a sample app to check how the progress bar can look, as well as a sample video on YouTube. The project is open source, so if you have some ideas of improving it, feel free to make a pull request.

More information regarding this project can be found in the library thread.
