There are two reasons we love this new video of an Android fan showing off Android N’s hot new animations so much. First, it does a fantastic job of giving users a preview of all of the slick new animations Google baked into Android N. Transition animations might not seem like they would be a pivotal part of the overall Android experience, but we assure you they are. They add a tremendous amount to the user experience and that’s why mobile platform makers like Apple and Google put so much time and effort into their animations.
The second reason we love this video so much is because the YouTube user who made it is really excited. Like, really really excited.
Seriously, just look at him:
His name is “GeekCeption” and there is absolutely no question that he’s now our favorite YouTuber. The level of enthusiasm he offers in his videos is off the charts, and it’s infectious. Is it possible to get this enthused over Android UI animations? You might not think so going into this video, but you’ll be a believer when it’s done.
As for the animations themselves, GeekCeption used the latest Android N developer preview to show them off, and he slowed down the footage so it’s all in slow-motion. If you’re wondering what kind of attention to detail Google applied when crafting Android N, this video will undoubtedly answer your question.
