One of our “controls” of the week isn’t actually a control, but a full app. Sam Soffes’ well-regarded Cheddar todo list app was recently open-sourced. It’s a great example of a good-sized, well-written, attractive iOS app and undoubtedly has something to teach just about everyone interested in iOS development. BSD licensed.

One of our controls of the week, GHSidebarNav, is the most faithful reproduction of the Facebook 4.0-5.0 sidebar UI I’ve seen yet for iOS. As its author, Greg Haines, puts it, it’s a clone of the new Facebook iOS UI paradigm; a sidebar navigation table that is revealed by sliding the main content panel to the right. The search goes full-screen and everything supports the standard orientations.
This project uses the Container View Controller methods introduced in iOS 5.0 so, it won’t work on any version prior.
This project uses ARC so, you’ll need Mac OS 10.7+ (Lion) and Xcode 4.2.1+ to build it. Apache 2.0 licensed.
