The property animation capabilities that are in Android 3.0 (described in the article Animation in Honeycomb) represent a good building block for powerful animation capabilities in the platform. But we're not stopping there. One minor addition to the platform was added in the 3.1 release, ViewPropertyAnimator. This class allows very easy and efficient one-liner animations of some of the new View properties like alpha, rotation, and scaleX/Y.
Check out the Introducing ViewPropertyAnimator article on the Android developer blog for more about this new API. In the meantime, enjoy this teaser trailer that shows the demo described in the article. The interesting part is the code (shown in the article, not here). And the soundtrack, of course: turn up your speakers.
