Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst | January 26, 2013

Hi everyone, and welcome to our weekly roundup! Today, we have a ton of great, new controls, a gorgeous app chock-full of open source controls built by one of our readers, and a new sponsor!

I know I may sound like a broken record, but I’m continually amazed by the skills and generosity alike of the iOS developer community: the amount of time and energy it takes to build components like the ones we have featured this week is immense, and then these are just given away. Th...


Controls of the Week: BTBreadcrumbView and RETrimControl

Aaron Brethorst | January 26, 2013

You can’t have just one when you publish 25 controls in a single week! This week featured some really fantastic open source components, and picking even just two was tough.

SignNow, our app of the week, is a bit more…corporate than the other apps we’ve hig...


HelpShift

Aaron Brethorst | January 26, 2013

I want to say a few words about HelpShift, our sponsor for the roundup. They reached out to us about sponsoring us because of the quality and capability of the developers who patronize our site. Please take a few minutes to check out their offerings. I feel very strongly about only featuring content on Cocoa Controls that I feel is worthy of your attention, and their product is no exception. Before we agreed to their sponsorship, I tried out their product and integrated it into an iOS app I...


Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst | January 20, 2013

Hi folks, welcome to our weekly roundup! It’s been one of those weeks: we’ve had way too many cool controls posted to the site for me to be able to choose just one to be our control of the week. So, we have two again for you today! Bravo to the authors for their creativity, skill and generosity.

Additionally, this week wasn’t as big in terms of site improvements as last week, but I made one change that should be of great interest: specifically, you can now see the R...

Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst | January 13, 2013

Hi everyone, welcome to our weekly roundup. I’m sure you’ve heard the news, but I just wanted to add my two cents. Everyone here was shocked and saddened by the death of Aaron Swartz this week. I had the pleasure of speaking with him a little over four years ago. I was getting close to shipping my first iOS app, and wanted to know if I could include some data from one of his sites in the application. Aaron...


App of the Week: Static for iPhone

Aaron Brethorst | January 14, 2013

This past week, I rolled out a new feature to collect all of the apps in the App Store that use a particular control. Let’s say that you’re using Evernote for iPhone, and want to know how they display little popover views on their maps. It turns out that if you dig deep enough through the app, you can find a list of acknowledgements that highlights their use of WEPopover, SMCalloutView, GPUImage, and—well—

Our control of the week, ZGParallelView, was written by Zhigang Fang. ZGParallelView is the easiest way to add a Parallax effect to a UITableView. It works perfectly with UITableViewController and is completely com...
