FIG. 1 is a front view of the first image in the sequence for a display screen with an animated user interface showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is the second image thereof;

FIG. 3 is the third image thereof;

FIG. 4 is the fourth image thereof;

FIG. 5 is the fifth image thereof;

FIG. 6 is the sixth image thereof;

FIG. 7 is the seventh image thereof;

FIG. 8 is the eighth image thereof;

FIG. 9 is the ninth image thereof;

FIG. 10 is the tenth image thereof;

FIG. 11 is the eleventh image thereof; and,

FIG. 12 is the twelfth image thereof.

The appearance of the user interface sequentially transitions between the images shown in FIGS. 1-12.

The broken line showing of the display screen is for environmental purposes only and forms no part of the claimed design.
