Mobile Payments Animation

I’ve been having so much fun with Keynote that I only recently realized the importance of transitions and animations in UI design. Transitions are subtle ways that we comprehend an action on our devices, yet most of us do not notice that they are occurring.

Think about the last time you picked up your iPhone to send a text. Have you ever noticed the transition that occurs when you enter an app? Or when happens when you click the plus icon in Instagram? These very subtle movements let’s us know where we are in our devices to prevent us from “getting lost”.

Today, I decided to experiment with this subtle communication by returning to the mobile payments app. I’ve added a transition between credit cards and a unique, albeit non-traditional transition for exiting the app. 🙂
