Want to make your Android app a whole lot interesting? Here is a curated list of Android Animation library to add a better user interface to your library and improve your app’s user retention rate!

Lottie for Android

Lottie is a mobile library for Android and iOS that parses Adobe After Effects animations exported as json with Bodymovin and renders them natively on mobile!

For the first time, designers can create and ship beautiful animations without an engineer painstakingly recreating it by hand. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words so here are 13,000

Lottie 2.8.0 and above only supports projects that have been migrated to androidx. For more information, read Google’s migration guide.

Android Material Animation

Android material animation library uses Android transition framework to do the following:

  1. Animate activity layout content when transitioning from one activity to another.
  2. Animate shared elements (Hero views) in transitions between activities.
  3. Animate view changes within same activity.
A Start B

When transitioning from Activity A to Activity B content layout is animated according to defined transition. There are three predefined transitions available on android.transition.Transition you can use: Explode, Slide and Fade. All these transitions track changes to the visibility of target views in activity layout and animate those views to follow transition rules.

This Android library provides an easy way to create an alternative navigation drawer for android. Instead of a drawer that slides over the main content of the Activity, this lets the content slide away and reveal a menu below it.

By default it applies a scaling effect on the content and menu.

Demo CountPages alpha

To get started add the following lines of code to your build.gradle file:

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
 // jcenter() works as well because it pulls from Maven Central
}
dependencies {
    implementation 'nl.psdcompany:duo-navigation-drawer:2.0.8'
}

}

Also make sure that the repositories section includes not only jcenter but also a maven section with the "google()" endpoint.

repositories {
  google()
  jcenter()
}

Rebound by Facebook

Rebound is a java library that models spring dynamics. Rebound spring models can be used to create animations that feel natural by introducing real world physics to your application.

Rebound is not a general purpose physics library; however, spring dynamics can be used to drive a wide variety of animations. The simplicity of Rebound makes it easy to integrate and use as a building block for creating more complex components like pagers, toggles, and scrollers.

Rebound uses the same spring constants as Origami making it easy to convert Origami interaction mockups directly into your Android application.

StaggeredAnimationGroup

A ConstraintLayout group that allows for simple staggered animations.

Add a proper dependency inside your build.gradle. Like this:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.bartoszlipinski.constraint:staggeredanimationgroup:1.0.0'
    
    // obviously, you will also need those two:
    implementation 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:1.1.0-beta1'
    implementation 'com.android.support:transition:26.1.0'
}

Folding Cell Android Animation Library

Expanding content cell with animation inspired by folding paper card material design.
