Animation is a powerful feature that all mobile app designers and developers should use—in fact, it’s one of the top user interface trends for 2017. Not only does animation elevate the visual factor of your app, but also increases its perceived intuitiveness and directs users’ behavior.

This being the “now” generation, users expect instant gratification and animations are an excellent way to feed to their expectations. If animation isn’t your forte, you can draw some inspiration from these dynamic examples discovered by Line25, which are even complete with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript codes.

Recent research conducted by Adobe shows that 39% of users would leave an app if they have to wait too long for it. Take a look at the creative animated examples below and get inspired by more here.
