Previously I mentioned a library showing how to implement a real time dynamic blur effect similar to that found in the Yahoo Weather App.
Here’s another library that makes it easy to implement a similar dynamic blurring effect while scrolling called BTGLassScrollView from BTLibrary with a few more customization options.
BTGlassScrollView allows you to easily define the level of blur, the tint color of the blur, how much the background scrolls when the user starts scrolling and more.
I’ve mentioned a number of open source iOS components for creating chat style views with bubbles modeled after the chat view found within the iMessages app such as UIBubbleTableView.
Here’s an open source component called SPHChatBubble that allows you to create more with some more features than previously mentioned libraries from Siba Hota.
With SPHChatBubble support is added for avatars, images, resizing, data detectors, copy and paste support, and more. Like other chat views the input resizes as the user types.
I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for making custom progress indicators like this library for creating customizable circular progress views.
Here’s a library called LDProgressView that allows you to easily create great looking custom progress bars with animations from Light Design.
With LDProgressView you can easily change the progress bar size, coloring, border stripes, choose whether to animate the bar and more to make things look just right.
I’ve mentioned a few nice components for aiding users in how to use your apps such as this nice library for creating coach marks, this control for creating animated guide arrows, and this library for creating app introduction tutorials.
Here’s an open source component for those times when you’re trying to show users how to do something called RMStepsController from CooperRS.
RMStepsController provides a nice interface illustrating the number of steps, and easy switching back and forth between steps.
Previously I mentioned a full-featured commercial component with a free option allowing you to add in a nice image editor into your apps called the Aviary SDK.
Here’s a nice image editing component you can drop into an app called CLImageEditor from Sho Yakushiji with a great looking interface.
CLImageEditor includes a large number of tools for filtering, cropping, rotation, and more.
Here’s a set of images showing CLImageEditor in action from the readme:
