As the title suggests.

I have seen this in xperia z2 lockscreen and wanted to recreate that effect
I googled arround but only found some which also needed me to create a game of it which i dont want

I want to have a view and can simply move my finger in it and let sparkles,particles,smoke etc drag under it

Anyone knows how?

Create a view (sparkles or whatever) and at ontouch listener update the parameters of X & Y
I made this in a previous app of mine (Floata) but you can adapt it to the app

here you are :

Adding the view :

	twitterp = new WindowManager.LayoutParams(

		twitterp.gravity = Gravity.TOP | Gravity.LEFT;
		twitterp.x = 0;
		twitterp.y = 0;

		windowManager.addView(twitter, twitterp);

twitter.setOnTouchListener(new View.OnTouchListener() {

			private int initialX;
			private int initialY;
			private float initialTouchX;
			private float initialTouchY;

			public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {


				switch (event.getAction()) {

				case MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN:
					initialX = twitterp.x;
					initialY = twitterp.y;
					initialTouchX = event.getRawX();
					initialTouchY = event.getRawY();

					return false;

				case MotionEvent.ACTION_UP:

					return false;
				case MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE:
					twitterp.x = initialX
							+ (int) (event.getRawX() - initialTouchX);
					twitterp.y = initialY
							+ (int) (event.getRawY() - initialTouchY);

					windowManager.updateViewLayout(twitter, twitterp);


					return false;

				return false;

this is a floating object (like a chathead of Fb messenger) , you can use the samew concept in your app i think
