Happy Monday, everyone. I hope that you’ve been keeping busy building new apps taking advantage of all the cool, new stuff in iOS 5.
This control is a double-headed slider, which allows you to easily select a range of values instead of a single, discrete value.

Welcome back to the slightly belated Weekly Roundup!
We were going to get this out at the beginning of the week, but unfortunately circumstances conspired against us! Rest assured that we’ll be back with the next at the beginning of next week. Thanks again for your interest in this feature!
Monday – ObjQREncoder
ObjQREncoder is yet another iOS project from the very prolific Jeff Ve...

We’re one control short of a full deck this week. I’m adjusting the schedule, and things will be back to normal next week.
Perfectly timed with the release of version 4.0 of the Facebook app for iOS is a control that mimics the slide-out panel the app is built around.

Welcome to another Cocoa Controls weekly roundup! We’ve been busy here over the past week, and have seven cool new iOS components to tell you about.
HGKOptionPanel is an unassuming, small touch control that, on tapping, slides up to reveal a container view for options. This could be very useful for predominantly single view apps that need a place for a few settings controls.

A few months back, I was contacted by Marine and Rob with mobile[foo], the mobile development arm of Red Gate Software. They wanted to know if I would consider selling Cocoa Controls.
Initially, I was hesitant. The last thing I would ever want would be for Cocoa Controls to lose its community focus, or its ability to be a great, free resource.
But, after an early morning call with Marine and Rob (they’re based out of Cambridge in the U.K.), I realized that their goals were ...

A Brief Retrospective
When I launched Cocoa Controls back in January, I did it because I kept losing track of all the cool open-source iOS components that I had found on GitHub, and needed a place to stash them. Furthermore, I hoped that with a little luck, lots of new controls would simply come to me! Finally, I expected that there were probably a few other people out there with a similar need as me.
As it works out, I have been absolutely blown away by the response I’ve...

It’s been a pretty great week around Cocoa Controls. Here’s the latest.
I added a handy-dandy grid/table switcher to all of the Control index pages. Now, you can view significantly larger thumbnails of iOS and OS X controls before diving into the details pages. Look for it in the top right corner on All Controls, iOS and OS X.
The Great Facebook Purge continues! I am in the process of ensuring that all of your comments are successfully transferre...

Welcome back to week two of the Cocoa Controls blog! I’ve been pretty busy over here, what with some technical issues, some site updates, great new content, and 21 new controls.
Site availability issues
You may have noticed some instances in the past day or so where the site has been difficult to reach. Apparently, our hosting provider, Heroku, has been experiencing occasional problems with properly directing HTTP traffic. If you run into this pr...
