WP Turnstile Transition - by thewp7dev
It has always bugged me that the cool native turnstile animations for Windows Phone 7 are not natively available to developers. Rather then sit around and mope about it, I’ve implemented my own Turnstile transition.
I know that there are a couple of other turnstile controls out there, but they require you to use a custom itemscontrol and they animate on the ui thread. That’s not very cool, we should be able to turnstile what we like, regardless of what itemscontrol or contentcontrol our items are hosted in and it’s also better to animate them on the compositor thread, as we can do calculations or data retrieval when navigating (who actually does that?).
