The Highlight 2015 — Best Animations

What we know today as ‘The Highlight‘ here on Beautiful Pixels actually began back in 2012, when we started highlighting our favorite apps and games that we’d seen over the last 12 months. As part of this series, we’ve been showcasing the best UI Animations seen in apps and other platforms.

These are Loren Brichter’s Tweetie and, of course, Tweetbot. It was sad to see Twitter come in and turn Tweetie into what it is today in the form of the official Twitter...
