How to Add Animations to Your Application
Transition animations are the spice of life. Ok, well maybe not life itself, but they certainly can help make a mundane task just a little more exciting. After all, it’s no secret that most of us like a little bit of eye candy. And like the Mac OS X genie effect in this article’s title image, animations help tell a story.
