Motion in the world of material design is used to describe spatial relationships, functionality, and intention with beauty and fluidity.
Why does motion matter?
Motion shows how an app is organized and what it can do.
- Guided focus between views
- Hints at what will happen if a user completes a gesture
- Hierarchical and spatial relationships between elements
- Distraction from what’s happening behind the scenes (like fetching content or loading the next view)
- Character, polish, and delight
