Placeholder text is a string that is used to display inside text inputs while they are empty to let the user know that what is the input he is expected to enter in the form field.

Sometimes users do not quite pay attention to placeholder text.

This object grabs the user attention in a more effective way by using animation to make the placeholder text move at a given speed.
