Weekly Roundup

by Aaron Brethorst | December 30, 2012

Hi Everyone, happy holidays and happy new year! I hope you’re having a great week, and enjoying a little time off of work. We definitely have, but we’ve also been cooking up some cool, new stuff, both for authors of controls (commercial and non-commercial alike), and for consumers. We’ve had a great year here at Cocoa Controls:

  • We had almost seven times as many visitors this past month as we did in the period one year ago.
  • We’ve published 486 controls this year.
  • You’ve favorited them 12,501 times this year.
  • You’ve rated them 5,287 times this year.
  • The user with the most favorites has favorited a grand total of 167 controls.
  • The most-favorited control has been favorited 117 times (AURosetteView).
  • The most-rated control, iCarousel, has been rated 156 times(!).

I’m really excited to see where we can take Cocoa Controls in 2013. Thanks again for everything; the site wouldn’t be worth much without your enthusiasm, wonderful content, and usage!

Happy new year!
Marine and Aaron
