Now Add Even More Animations to Your Apps

Now Add Even More Animations to Your Apps

Adding animations in an application does more than simply elevate the level of visual flourish. Animations also help tell your users what’s going on. Further, they help give your application that last little bit of polish by making the whole experience feel smother and more intuitive. When used tastefully, most applications benefit from their use.

Not too long ago, we covered a guide by XDA Forum Member a-ssassi-n aimed at helping developers incorporate various animations into their apps. At the time, a-ssassi-n had included four animations into the tutorial: blink, fade-in, fade-out, and cross-fade.

While the previous selection allowed developers to get started with incorporating animations into their apps, having more options is preferable. As such, a-ssassi-n also stated that he planned to extend his tutorial to include other animations in the future. This is now the case, as A-ssassi-n has now extended his guide to include two new animations: zoom-in and zoom-out.

Make your way over to the original thread to learn how to incorporate zoom-in and zoom-out effects into your app.
