Open Source iOS Component For Creating UILabels With Interesting Transition Effects

Earlier this year I mentioned a component for creating fading text labels like in the secret app and more recently a component for morphing text between UILabel values.

Here’s an open source component allowing you to create UILabels with several different effects from android1989 called YetiCharacterLabelExample.

YetiCharacterLabelExample allows you to create a falling text effect, a Secret style fading label effect, and an iOS 8 keyboard autocomplete inspired motion label effect.  The component comes with both Objective-C and Swift versions.

Here’s an open source component called JTSScrollIndicator from Jared Sinclair that lets you easily implement colored vertical scroll bars.
