Back in November 2012, I wrote a blog post entitled ”ActionBar on the Move”. This article was mainly dealing with a technique to nicely and uniquely animate your
ActionBar. Although I mentioned some of the effect’s possible applications, I never had time to effectively add an
ActionBar animation to one of my own apps nor saw an application on the Play Store taking advantage of it.
While being at Google I/O last week, I finally found an application using the
ActionBar animation technique. Let’s be honest, it literally blew my mind the first time I saw it. I felt in love with the nice, subtle and yet extremely useful animated effect probably more than the entire app itself! I am pretty sure you know the application I am talking about as it has been presented during the Google I/O keynote. You have also probably recently received an update of it: Play Music!
