    Here’s a detailed look at each chapter in the book:

    • Chapter 1, Getting Started with View Animations: You’ll learn how to move, scale and fade views. You’ll create a number of different animations to get comfortable with Swift and the basic UIKit APIs.
    • Chapter 2, Springs: You’ll build on the concepts of linear animation and create more eye-catching effects using spring-driven animations. Boiiing! :]

    • Chapter 3, Transitions: You’ll learn about several class methods in UIKit that help you animate views in or out of the screen. These one-line API calls make transition effects easy to achieve.
    • Chapter 4, View Animations in Practice: This chapter teaches you how to combine techniques you’ve already learned in creative ways to build up even cooler animations.
    • Chapter 5, Keyframe Animations: You’ll use keyframe animations to unlock the ultimate achievement of an impressive UI: creating elaborate animation sequences built from a number of distinct stages.

    • Chapter 6, Introduction to Auto Layout: This is a crash course on Auto Layout in case you’re not familiar with it already; you’ll need this for the next chapter.
    • Chapter 7, Animating Constraints: Once you’ve worked through the project in Chapter 6, you’ll add a number of animations to it and put your newfound knowledge to good use.
    • Chapter 8, Getting Started with Layer Animations: You’ll start with the simplest layer animations, but also learn about debugging animations gone wrong.
    • Chapter 9, Animation Keys and Delegates: Here you gain more control over the currently running animations and use delegate methods to react to animation events.
    • Chapter 10, Groups and Advanced Timing: In this chapter you combine a number of simple animations and run them together as a group.
    • Chapter 11, Layer Springs: Take a tour of the shiny new CASpringAnimation class in iOS 9, which allows you to easily create layer spring animations.
    • Chapter 12, Keyframe Animations: Here you’ll learn about layer keyframe animations, which are powerful and slightly different than view keyframe animations.
    • Chapter 13, Shapes and Masks: Draw shapes on the screen via CAShapeLayer and animate its special path property.

    • Chapter 14, Gradient Animations: Learn how to use CAGradientLayer to help you draw and animate gradients.
    • Chapter 15, Stroke and Path Animations: Here you will draw shapes interactively and work with some powerful features of keyframe animations.
    • Chapter 16, Replicating Animations: Learn about the little known but powerful CAReplicatorLayer class.
    • Chapter 17, Custom Presentation Controller & Device Orientation Animations: Learn how to present view controllers via custom animated transitions.
    • Chapter 18, UINavigationController Custom Transition Animations: You’ll build upon your skills with presenting view controllers and develop a really neat reveal transition for a navigation controller app.
    • Chapter 19, Interactive UINavigationController Transitions: Learn how to make the reveal transition interactive: the user will be able to scrub back and forth through the animated transition!
    • Chapter 20, Simple 3D Animations: Learn how to set up your layers in 3D space, how to choose the distance from the camera to your layer, and how to create animations in your 3D scene.

    • Chapter 21, Intermediate 3D Animations: Go further into 3D space and learn about some of the more advanced ways to create 3D Animations.
    • Chapter 22, Particle Emitters: Learn how to use UIKit’s built-in particle emitters to create a fun snowfall effect.
    • Chapter 23, Frame Animations with UIImageView: Learn how to sequence multiple images together into a flipbook-style animation.
