Inspired by Facebook Paper for iOS, in one of our recent projects we decided to implement a similar-style animated effect when opening elements from a list.

Usually developing a tablet version of an existing mobile app that’s been optimized for a smartphone is fast and easy: you can use Fragment, decompose Entities, etc. However, the task within one of our recent projects was rather unique: we were not only making a tablet version for an application based on the ActionBarSherlock library but we also needed first, to implement a Floating Activity, i.e., a transparent Activity so that users could input the required information while also being able to see other Activities or the app itself on the screen in the background; second, to preserve the original size of the floating activity in both portrait and landscape orientations of the device.
