App Animation XMLs Made Easy

An animation-less app can get pretty boring. Although developing an app is more for the functionality than the eye candy, the user experience will be more enriched if the user interface has some sort of animations to keep things interesting. It doesn’t have to be extensive or complicated, more often than not only requiring the right animations here and there.

That’s probably why XDA Senior Member niranjan94‘s compilation of animations XMLs can be such a valuable resource for both the novice and experienced developers alike. An idea that spawned from a lot of ‘Googling’ for animations to use in his own app, niranjan94 had decided to save you the time and effort by presenting twelve simple and useful animations to be incorporated in your app.

The animations include ones that make an element simply appear, fade in or out, slide in and out from the right, left, bottom and top of the screen, and rotate. Each animation is accompanied by its respective HTML code. And if you’re not happy with the animation speed, you can easily fix that by changing the android:duration value.

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
