I prototyped a stretchy cover image that basically scales up and gets blurred on scrolling the content down. Also, if you tap on the the profile picture it enlarges and takes the width of the screen.
Page control is a very common design element and is used in various cases like user onboarding, instructions and product walkthrough. This prototype lets you swipe horizontally across pages and indicates which page you're on.
I prototyped a 3D card stack which essentially is an array of cards. When you swipe a card to left or right the position of all the array items is changed accordingly.
