One of the most beautiful design aspects of the Windows Phone OS is the use of motion design. Windows Phone is alive with motion, which acts as a huge differentiator in quality apps. Unfortunately, motion design can be very painstaking work and difficult to implement. Fortunately, the Windows Phone Toolkit has everything you need to implement powerful animations that bring your Windows Phone apps to life. In this video, Shawn Oster walks us through the steps of adding the Windows Phone Toolkit, and using the transitions and tilt animations to make your app feel like a natural part of the ecosystem. For more information, see the Channel 9 post IWP 58 | Put the Standard Animations in your App.
