Before Android 5.0 Lollipop animations between activities weren't a strong point of Android apps. There weren't many ways to create a smooth and engaging experience for the user. A lot of apps looked the same when it comes to activity transitions. Fortunately Android 5.0 brought new Transitions API. It gives lots of new possibilities, not only activity transitions, but in this article I will focus on that area. Keep in mind, that Google doesn't provide backport library and there is no chance to do it on lower versions of Android.
