Weekly Roundup

Welcome to our weekly roundup! This appears to be the week of paging controls, ranging from a container view controller with a scroll view, to a UITableViewDataSource-esque scroll view, to an App Store-like screenshot paging view.

Cheers,
Aaron

Control of the Week: MHPagingScrollView

Our control of the week, MHPagingScrollView is a UIScrollView subclass from Matthijs Hollemans that shows previews of the pages on the left and right. It uses a delegate much in the way UITableView uses a data source. The control was License unspecified.

Check it out on Cocoa Controls, or watch a demo of it on YouTube:

Weekly Roundup

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s roundup. I just got back in on Saturday from a long overdue vacation, so you can expect things will be getting back to normal around here over the next couple days, and the new feature work I’ve been mentioning will be getting wrapped up soon.

Submitting Controls

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 :)

Welcome to another Cocoa Controls Weekly Roundup. I hope you all had a productive week and a relaxing weekend! Over here, we’ve been hard at work upgrading the site to Rails 3.2 in order to make a whole raft of forthcoming feature and performance improvements far easier to implement. The update will be online later this week.

The other big news of the week, of course, was the announcement of The New iPad. Have you placed your pre-order yet? If not, it looks like every iPad model i...

Control of the Week: Photo Picker Plus

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

Hello everyone, and welcome to your weekly Cocoa Controls roundup! It’s been an exciting week for Mac developers with the unexpected announcement and Beta release of OS X Mountain Lion. Some of the new features, like Gatekeeper, are certainly not unexpected. This Cocoa developer, for one, is pleased that Apple has announced a reasonably middle-of-the-road approach that balances security with usability.

Perhaps one of the biggest surprises in Mountain Lion is what Apple did not ann...

Control of the Week: JTGestureBasedTableViewDemo

If you’ve paid any attention to Mac or iOS news websites over the past week or two, you’ve probably heard a lot of people talking about the super-snazzy task management app, Clear.

Enterprising iOS developer, James Tang, recreated the core experience and released the source code on GitHub under the very permissive MIT license as JTGestureBasedTableViewDemo.

Weekly Roundup

Howdy, and welcome to another weekly roundup. We’ve received an incredible number of controls over the past couple weeks—so many, in fact, that we’re now publishing two controls per day. At least for now. Last week’s Bootstrap 2.0 migration went relatively smoothly, and I haven’t heard anything about, so I can only assume that you haven’t run into too many issues. As always, though, please ping us if you have any problems.

Cheers,

Control of the Week

DAKeyboardControl, our control of the week from Daniel Armitay, lets you duplicate the keyboard dismissal behavior seen in Messages on iOS 5. It allows the user to drag the UIKeyboard down from a view. The author notes that it doesn’t use any undocumented APIs but—to the best of his knowledge—has not been included in any App Store-accepted apps. MIT

Hi everyone, and welcome to another weekly roundup! The big news this week is that the new Bootstrap 2.0 UI just went live in the wee hours of Monday morning. Please let us know if you see anything out of the ordinary, have any comments, want to see less of something, or more of something else.

Here are a couple highlights from the UI refresh:

Weekly Roundup

Howdy everyone – Welcome to another weekly roundup! We have a pretty exciting week planned behind the scenes here at Cocoa Controls. It’s always seemed somewhat ironic to me that the Cocoa Controls website isn’t very navigable on the iPhone. You have to do a lot more zooming and scrolling than you really should. To that end, since the release of Twitter’s Bootstrap 2 on the 31st, we’ve been moving the site onto Bootstrap 2, and are excited to say that we should ha...

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s Weekly Roundup! In addition to trolling GitHub for cool, new controls, we also read a ton of blogs, Twitter posts, and Hacker News links, where we run into all sorts interesting content that—traditionally—hasn’t fit in well with the standard Cocoa Controls model. So, we’re mixing it up a bit, and adding a new feature this week: What We’re Reading. It seems like a shame to not share this stuff, and we hope you like it. Let us know ...

Control of the Week

We’ve all dealt with the hassle of constructing UITableViewController subclasses specifically to capture a couple pieces of data. Maybe you’ve even created a half-baked generic frameworky sort of thing to make the process easier. I know I have, at least twice. This isn’t any fun, and yet we keep doing it. I now know that there’s a better way to deal with these sorts of things, with this week’s Control of the Week:
