I like making cool UX interaction. Smoothy UI animation — everyone loves this.
But sometimes it’s unnecessary thing. Sometimes, UI works better without any fancy animation.
And it’s that thing that happened with my app I developed. 850 words. UX of the app became much better when I remove all transitions.
So, what’s the point? The point is that there is no right/wrong approach of using or not using animations in your projects. There is only one right thing here. You always need to test your design with users.
