Weekly Roundup

Hi folks, welcome to our weekly roundup. I want to thank HelpShift again for sponsoring our newsletter. Apparently you guys really like their offering, too, which I think is fantastic! Like I said before, 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. If you need to add support features to your iOS app, I think their offering is—by far—the best way to go.

If your company is interested in sp...

Weekly Roundup

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

Weekly Roundup

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

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

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—

Hi everyone, I hope you had a very happy new year! Now that we’re in 2013, it’s time to start looking ahead to the summer and WWDC. Word is already circulating that iOS 7 and an unknown iOS device are showing up in developers’ logs.

Meanwhile, we have a really fantastic selection of controls for you here this week. Picking our Control of the Week this week was a really difficult exercise. For instance, we have a great image cropping tool, seve...

Controls of the Week: KLNoteViewController and GC3DFlipTransitionStyleSegue

This week, we had so many great controls that I couldn’t pick a single Control of the Week, and decided that two had to share the distinction. The first is KLNoteViewController from the prolific and very talented Kieran Lafferty, a Canadian mobile developer who you probably remember from his last few controls of the week. KLNoteViewController is a gorgeous tabbed container interface for navigating between multiple view controllers.

The second is GC3DFlipTransitionStyleSegue from <...>

Weekly Roundup

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 c...

Control of the Week: BCGenieEffect

Ever wished you could add that delete effect in Mail or Photos to your app? With BCGenieEffect, our control of the week, you should be able to do just that (although that trash can animation is liable to be a bit tricky). It replicates the OS X ge...

Happy holidays to all of you from Marine and I! I want to thank everyone who participated in our survey; enough of you chose to have us donate to charity: water to give four families clean drinking water. We’ll be poring over of the data collected and using it to better focus our efforts on delivering more of what you want to see on Cocoa Controls in the new year. I, personally, am very excited!

All the best,
Aaron and ...
