This week’s control of the week comes from Nick Farina, the cofounder of Meridian, a maker of apps for places in Portland, Oregon (hey Nick, I’d love to see indoor maps for all Kroger supermarkets; I can never find anything!).

SMCalloutView is a lightweight callout view class for iOS mimicking UICalloutView. We all love those “bubbles” you get when clicking pins in MKMapView. But sadly, it’s impossible to present this bubble-style “Callout” UI anywhere outside MKMapView. Phooey! So this class painstakingly recreates this handy control for your pleasure.
