Late last year I mentioned a library for visualizing, playing and recording audio.
Here’s a component allowing you to quickly and easily generate the waveform quickly and easily for an audio or video asset called SCWaveformView from Simon Corsin.
SCWaveFormView allows you to set the colors and size for your waveform, and change colours easily to indicate progress.
Here’s an image from the readme showing SCWaveFormView in action:
Previously I mentioned a text entry component modeled after the compose bar from the iMessages app.
Here’s an open source component from Damiaan Twelkeer caled RDRStickyKeyboardView that provides an expanding text view for entry that sticks to the screen when the keyboard is removed.
RDRStickyKeyboardView follows the keyboard to the bottom of the screen, and moves up when the keyboard is shown like in the iMessage app. You can change the buttons that appear on the left and right sides of the components.
Yesterday I mentioned a control allowing you to create a shimmering effect on any UIView which is a nice unobtrusive way to indicate activity.
Here’s an activity indicator from Yimin Tang called TYMActivityIndicatorView that provides a nice customizable circular activity indicator with icon.
With TYMActivityIndicatorView you can set the angle of the indicator, customize the appearance of the indicator using the UIAppearance proxy, and change the icon in the middle of the indicator. Very nice if you want to have activity indicators showing some kind of background process.
A couple of months ago I mentioned a library that allowed you to create over a dozen different styles of progress indicators.
Here’s an open source library from Facebook that allows you to create the nice moving glow effect like the loading status used in the Facebook Paper app called Shimmer.
Shimmer allows you to apply the effect to any UIView, you can adjust the speed, opacity, duration and you can start and stop the shimmering effect if desired making it nice to use a a progress indicator.
About a month ago I mentioned a tutorial showing how you could can create completely customizable components that look and behave like the standard UIAlertView using the iOS 7 transitions API.
Here’s a component called DQAlertView from Dinh Quan that allows you to make alert views with standard styling and a number of added features.
Some of the features of DQAlertView include:
