When the titlebar or app menu appear and disappear, they should slide smoothly onto (or off of) the screen.

We can look at partial transitions. Those might have better performance characteristics. Start at halfway through the transition and continue to completion instead of transitioning fully.

The eye still sees motion, but we might look better and be less jumpy.

Attached patch WIP v0.1Splinter Review
I was working on a refactor for Popups/Panel/Dialogs that will allow this kind of things to be integrated
Wow. This patch is bigger than the original intent :)

Can we do a simple animation of the Android menu?
No need to track this. We'll get it landed when it's ready

Attached patch Patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This is a very simple solution that animates just the menubar and adds a little "HideAnimator" class for us to use.

Slightly updated. Animates showing and hiding (some) dialogs now as well.

Patch v2

Didn't have time yet for a full review, but nice patch overall. I'd rename HideAnimator since it does more than hide. Maybe WidgetAnimator?

The more animations we add in this patch, the more we need buy in from UX (including screenshots and such) before we land it. Just food for thought :)
Yeah, I'm ok with limiting this just to the android menu for now. There is a rather old build with this at:

madhava, can someone on ux look at that? The android menu should animate when appearing, as well as alert/prompt/etc. dialogs.
