Easily Add Animated Lists with ListViewAnimations

If you’re creating an application that displays a list, you will likely want to use a ListView. Now if you wish to make it look nice with animations and additional features such as different view types and expandable items, you would ordinarily have to do the hard work and add in the functionality yourself.

Thankfully, XDA Forum Member Niekfct shared his latest library for application developers in our relatively new App Development forums. So what functionality is available with this library? Currently, it offers list- and grid-view animations, and it also supports swipe to dismiss, expandable data points, and more. And to ensure compatibility with older devices, the library uses the NineOldAndroid library on devices running versions of Android older than Honeycomb.

If you wanted to easily add a ListView in your app and want it to have some snazzy animations, head over to the library thread to get started. Naturally, the library is open source, with the code available at the developer’s Github. Example code is available on the developer’s project page.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
