Get Moving: Adding Animation to Your Apps

Abstract

Animation is at the heart of nearly everything that happens on a Windows Phone. The most engaging Live Tiles are those that can animate, move around, and change their data dynamically. To move around the operating system, we slide from screen to screen, both vertically and horizontally. Finally, when we open an application, we get a nice page-turning animation that leads us directly into the app. Each of these animations has a purpose, and this chapter will focus on how to use this subtle, but effective, tool.
