Our control of the week, AutocompletionTableView offers you an autocompletion experience reminiscent of what you get with a UISearchDisplayController, but with a far more lightweight feel. Simplified BSD license.

I want to mention that we greatly appreciate your control submissions. I am continually impressed by the resourcefulness, dedication to quality, and willingness to share demonstrated by our community. To that end, I wanted to mention a few things about the process behind the scenes, both so you can better understand how and when content is published to the site, and also to help us streamline the process.

Hi folks – The Rails 3.2 upgrade is still forthcoming, but unfortunately it ran smack-dab into some unexpected turbulence. The upgrade is still forthcoming, along with a bunch of other neat stuff, but it’s just taking a little longer than expected. I’m sure you know how that goes :)

Control of the Week: Photo Picker Plus

Aaron Brethorst | March 12, 2012 | Comments

Photo Picker+, our control of the week, is a new library from the recently-launched YC startup, Chute. It replaces the native photo chooser, and lets you select photos from Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, or Instagram, in addition to the local Camera Roll or Photo Stream. It returns the photo in the exact same format as the native image picker on iOS and Android so it is very simple to integrate. MIT licensed. You’ll also need to sign up for a free account
