Spice Up Your Apps with Animations

Animation has become an integral feature of modern applications. When used appropriately, animations engage users and help to maintain context. Fortunately, the FMX Framework has a sophisticated animation engine, which makes it easy for us to spice up our Delphi applications--even if they are just targeting Windows.
