I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for creating alerts that display atop of your app underneath the app bar with customizable styling such as TSMessages.
Here’s a library called MessageBarManager from Terry Worona for presenting alerts in a stylish manner with some great customization options and a manager with some handy features.
With MessageBarManager you can customize the coloring used by the alert, the icon displayed within the alert, duration, create callbacks to handle taps on the alert, queue up multiple alerts and more.
I’ve mentioned a number of libraries created to simplify the programming of UIKit animations most recently RBBAnimation that allows you to create your animations with a clean blocks style syntax.
Here’s a library from Jamz Tang and Meng called Canvas created for designers that takes a different approach.
Canvas allows you to implement a wide number of animations without code, and provides components making it easier to use custom fonts, implement blurring, and changing the status bar color – all designed to be done without code.
I’ve mentioned a number of open source projects to aid in playing in-app movies most recently ALMoviePlayerController which allows you to change your movie player style, adjust the seek rate and more. One of the more common issues that arises when using the iOS SDK’s MPMoviePlayerController is that of how to play subtitles.
Here’s a category called MPMoviePlayerController-Subtitles from Marc Hervera that simplifies the display of SRT based subtitles in your MPMoviePlayer.
I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for creating drawer style slide in navigation views most recently this library enhanced with UIDynamics physics.
Here’s a library that provides an alternative to the side drawer style that looks better with the transparent iOS 7 sidebar called TWTSideMenuViewController from Two Toasters.
Menus are presented with this library by zooming out the main view, and sliding in another view which contains the menu. You can create the menus with the library by providing a main, and menu view.
About a year ago I mentioned an interesting library that allowed you to create complex data queries inspired by Microsoft’s LINQ framework.
Here is a library from Jérôme Morissard that provides an alternative to Core Data fetch requests, and NSArray predicate filters for searching through large amounts of data with some advantages called PermissiveResearch.
PermissiveResearch utilizes a customizable algorithm for searching through data that allows for mistakes, provides higher performance, and 3 different options are available. An example is included.
