On January 31, 2013, I gave an “Animations in Android” talk at the Google Developer Group Ann Arbor Android (GDG-A3). I covered three ways to animate in Android: “Manual” where you do all the heavy lifting in the
draw() method of your custom
Drawable; using the
Animation classes found in
android.view.animation; and the
Animator classes found in
android.animation. The major focus was on the
Animator classes, including the use of NineOldAndroids to support versions prior to Honeycomb.
The slides for the presentation are available here.
