General Question about Transforms/Transitions on Mobile

In general do all the transforms and transitions translate well over to mobile devices?

If I am not mistaken there is no hover option on mobile so a lot of these would not work.

No, there is no :hover state on mobile. Because it requires, obviously, something to hover over the link and as your finger IS the mouse pointer it doesn't happen without clicking the object. I'm given to understand that some people use/have used the :focus state with some success. I've never tried it, but might be worth giving it a shot!
