I made a whole WordPress blog about this, then I realised I'm not a writer. Anyway…
Announcing Shimmer for Windows.
Some of you may, or may not be aware of Shimmer for iOS and Android by Facebook. Well I noticed there wasn't one for Windows so I went ahead and made one with XAML.
I'm going to make a D2D version because there are some problems overlaying certain elements, like images.
So I hope you find a use for this, and I look forward to showing you the D2D version. Here is the code for you to use, just replace the text to whatever you would like, chnage the animation speed and your done.
