Each time the apps switch i find the abrupt change pulls my attention. having a cross fade would be awesome!
I noticed that too. I would love different transition choices, like fade, slide in from the top or left, dissolve, maybe have the pixels kind of rain down and have new pixels fall in from the top, etc.
Would love this as well. I work from home and this sits on my desk, and the transitions constantly pull my attention away, enough that I ended up flipping it over/down when I really need to focus.
