Mobile interfaces have become a playground for new and unusual transitions. When you add a “to do” item in Clear, or move from category to story detail in Facebook Paper, you experience a new standard in interface response using animation and sound.
Mobile developers and designers have a multitude of opportunities to inform and delight in those spaces in between major actions. When done well, unique transitions can add playfulness, meaning, and interest to your mobile solutions. When done badly, they can frustrate users with long wait times, or obscure the relationships between elements of your product.
In this session we’ll explore the power of transitions in the mobile space, and discuss:
Why is it important to consider transitions?
What types of situations warrant a unique transition?
Where can you find inspiration?
How do you know when you’ve gone overboard?
