Branch: master
Clone or download


NineOldAndroids is deprecated. No new development will be taking place. Existing versions will (of course) continue to function. New applications should use minSdkVersion="14" or higher which has access to the platform animation APIs.

Thanks for all your support!

Nine Old Androids

Android library for using the Honeycomb (Android 3.0) animation API on all versions of the platform back to 1.0!

Note: LayoutTransition is present and it is not be possible to implement prior to Android 3.0.


The API is exactly the same as the Honeycomb API, just change your imports to use com.nineoldandroids.XXX.

Take a look at a few demos taken from the platform ApiDemos in the sample/ folder. You can also try it out on the Play Store.
