I have an app with a main menu, where users can swipe horizontally through a set
of large icons that each take the user to a certain part of the app. When an icon
is tapped, it bounces, plays a sound, then takes the user to that particular part
of the app.
After trying out many different animations, I fell in love with a nice and clean
bounce animation that does its job without being too obvious. Unfortunately, the
link to the original implementation is now dead.
I modified the code by creating a UIView category for the animation, and added a
bounce factor so the effect can be used in various situations. I should probably
do the same for the repeat count as well, but that’s a later issue.
