Animation is an important part of user experience design. It serves as feedback on user actions, informs users of system status, and guides them on how to interact with the interface.
One of the tools that I'm using to create cross-platform mobile apps is React Native, so in this tutorial I'll walk you through how to implement animations in this platform. The final output for this tutorial will be a kitchen sink app that implements different kinds of animations. Here's how it will look:
