  • Several utility functions for formating dates

Custom animations are made in an animation class.

  • The possibility to transition an array of objects in and another array of objects out, e.g. a slide left to right animation. This is used for swapping the Latest Media on home screen when swiping. Latest media is also changed with a transition animation every fifth second.

Search functionality is activity sensitive, e.g. the Movies result are displayed on top when in Movies activity. Results are displayed interactively after each keystroke.
