I have seen a very nice effect in many applications which i don't how how it is achieved.
There is, usually, a list (eg. with emails) and the app populates it gradually with the emails putting them in order. They usually have a sliding effect to place the emails in the right line in the list.
Now, what I would like to find out is how they create the incremental population of the list. To become more specific; if I had to do this, I would retrieve the list of emails sorted by date directly from the database. Then I would populate the list. This means I would not receive the sorted emails gradually and then present them in the list.
Does anyone know how they do this? I tried to find a video but, unfortunately, I don't even know how to search for the effect.
