Comparison of animation smoothness

I did a quick comparison of animation smoothness in Lectora vs JQuery vs GSAP (an awesome yet not so popular animation library). You can find the test page here: http://bit.ly/animlect -- try this on your phone, tablet or PC.



Older phones (Android 4.3 and iOS 7.1.2) suffer most - Lectora animations are noticeably less smooth and animated elements shake during animation.



So I have two suggestions:

1. Set animation speed in seconds, not on an arbitrary scale between "slow" and "fast"

2. Consider switching to a better animation engine, especially if Lectora is being used more and more on mobile devices.
