Unless it's being lightning fast at turning the page, it doesn't animate. Yes it is a finger slide from left to right (or right to left).
I've seen somewhere that there are 5 different options for animation. Couldn't see a list in the option.
I should have pointed out that I'm using the free version. It might only be a PRO feature. I'm trying this on Nexus 7, which might be the issue as well.
