Foster at Mysterious Trousers notices that some apps evoke a visceral sensation when you use them.

The best designed apps don’t just look beautiful, as in pretty static UI elements (buttons, navigation ┬ábars, screen backgrounds, etc.). They have motion and the user experience is kinetic.

Have you ever seen an app where a scrolling list doesn’t bounce back? It’s very jarring. Great apps make use of small (sometimes gratuitous) animations and motions that really connect with customers.

Clearly PhotoShop and static comps for each app screen are not sufficient tools to design such user experiences. What tools to you use?
