Fragments 2017

A conference on the mobile ecosystem in India


Creating a richer user experience using physics-based animations

Submitted by Richa Khanna (@richak) on Sunday, 2 July 2017

Section: Full Talk Technical level: Intermediate


I will showcase how to create richer and more dynamic animations using the new physics-based animation library that provides a set of APIs for building animations that would use concepts like velocity, friction, spring effect. I will show examples of different cool transitions and how all of this can be utilised. In short, you will get to see, cool animations with physics effect.


  • What is Physics-based Animation?
  • How is physics-based animation different from animator based animation?
  • Different types of Dynamic Animations
  • SpringAnimation, FlingAnimation
  • How to use them to create beautiful & natural-looking animations?

Medium article : Introduction to Physics-based Animations in Android

Github project :

I am also giving a similar talk on “Animations + Physics = Cool App Transitions” at Droidcon Berlin, 2017.


Interested in learning new cool animations using physics-based animation library :)
