Core Animation based on Quartz provides very simple ways to create special effects in your game or application.

The following shows how to create a Move Effect of any UIView (e.g. UIButtonView, UIImageView) 


    +(void)move:(UIView*)view to:(CGPoint)point withDuration:(int) duration andSnapBack:(BOOL) snapBack
        // Prepare the animation from the current position to the new position
        CABasicAnimation *animation = [CABasicAnimation animationWithKeyPath:@"position"];
        animation.fromValue = [view.layer valueForKey:@"position"];
        // iOS
        animation.toValue = [NSValue valueWithCGPoint:point];
        animation.duration = duration;
            // Update the layer’s position so that the layer doesn’t snap back when the animation completes.
            view.layer.position = point;
        // Add the animation, overriding the implicit animation.
        [view.layer addAnimation:animation forKey:@"position"];
