Dabble in Minimalism With Android Emulator Boot Animation
Sometimes, the classiest aesthetics can be found in understated and minimalist design. Boot animations are no different. Sure everyone likes to knock a certain fruit off of its pedestal every now and then, but few things can beat minimalism in the long run.
To that end, XDA forum member Darkshado saw the Android emulator’s appealingly spartan boot animation and decided to capture it for use with our physical Android devices. In the words of the developer:
A few weeks ago, after using the Android Emulator for the first time I wondered how the built-in boot animation would look on the phone itself. Quick search showed no-one had bothered.
I didn’t keep it as my “daily driver” but since I went to the trouble of capturing the animation and editing it into something usable, I thought some people here might like it nonetheless.
