This simple tutorial shows you how to give animation to list view row. There are plenty of animations i covered here. First create anim folder in res folder and create different  XML for  different animation.

List of Animation

  1. Fade IN:
  2. <alpha xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:duration="100"
        android:fromAlpha="0.0"
        android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator"
        android:toAlpha="1.0" />
    

  3. Hyperspace Out:
  4. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shareInterpolator="false">
       <scale
          android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_decelerate_interpolator"
          android:fromXScale="1.0"
          android:toXScale="1.4"
          android:fromYScale="1.0"
          android:toYScale="0.6"
          android:pivotX="50%"
          android:pivotY="50%"
          android:fillAfter="false"
          android:duration="700" />
       <set
          android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator"
                    android:startOffset="700">
          <scale
             android:fromXScale="1.4"
             android:toXScale="0.0"
                  android:fromYScale="0.6"
              android:toYScale="0.0"
              android:pivotX="50%"
              android:pivotY="50%"
              android:duration="400" />
          <rotate
             android:fromDegrees="0"
             android:toDegrees="-45"
              android:toYScale="0.0"
              android:pivotX="50%"
              android:pivotY="50%"
              android:duration="400" />
       </set>
    </set>
    

  5. Push Left In:
  6. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
       <translate android:fromXDelta="100%p" android:toXDelta="0"
             android:duration="300"/>
       <alpha android:fromAlpha="0.0" android:toAlpha="1.0"
             android:duration="300" />
    </set>
    

  7. Push Left Out:
  8. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
       <translate android:fromXDelta="0" android:toXDelta="-100%p"
            android:duration="300"/>
       <alpha android:fromAlpha="1.0" android:toAlpha="0.0"
            android:duration="300" />
    </set>
    

  9. Push Up In:
  10. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
       <translate android:fromYDelta="100%p" android:toYDelta="0"
              android:duration="500"/>
       <alpha android:fromAlpha="0.0" android:toAlpha="1.0"
              android:duration="500" />
    </set>
    

  11. Push Up Out:
  12. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
       <translate android:fromYDelta="0" android:toYDelta="-100%p"
             android:duration="500"/>
       <alpha android:fromAlpha="1.0" android:toAlpha="0.0"
             android:duration="500" />
    </set>
    

  13. Shake:
  14. <translate xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:fromXDelta="0" android:toXDelta="10"
    android:duration="1000" android:interpolator="@anim/cycle" />
    

  15. Cycle:
  16. <cycleInterpolator xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:cycles="7" />
    

  17. Slide In Top:
  18. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
        <translate
            android:duration="1000"
            android:fromYDelta="-100%p"
            android:toYDelta="1" />
    </set>
    

  19. Slide Top to Bottom:
  20. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator">
        <translate android:fromYDelta="-100%" android:toXDelta="0"
            android:duration="100" />
        <alpha android:fromAlpha="0.0" android:toAlpha="1.0"
            android:duration="50" />
    </set>
    

  21. Wave Scale:
  22. <set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator">
        <alpha
            android:fromAlpha="0.0"
            android:toAlpha="1.0"
            android:duration="100" />
        <scale
            android:fromXScale="0.5" android:toXScale="1.5"
            android:fromYScale="0.5" android:toYScale="1.5"
            android:pivotX="50%" android:pivotY="50%"
            android:duration="200" />
        <scale
            android:fromXScale="1.5" android:toXScale="1.0"
            android:fromYScale="1.5" android:toYScale="1.0"
            android:pivotX="50%" android:pivotY="50%"
            android:startOffset="200"
            android:duration="100" />
    </set>
    

Create Main activity to create listview and give animation.
