Making buttons that match with the iPhone or iPad UI can be a difficult task.

You may have heard that there is an undocumented API in the iPhone sdk known as UIGlassButton which allows you to create buttons, and there’s been some pastie code floating around to save those buttons.

I recently needed to make a few of these buttons, and when I went around to find the code again I stumbled upon something even cooler, someone had hacked up a UIGlassButton button maker with sliders allowing you to tweak the button size, and color, screenshot below:

Overall not the most complicated project, but one that is tremendously useful and since it’s open source you can add in more parameters if you like.  I hope you like it – this is the Github where the files can be downloaded:
ButtonMaker

Just compile in Xcode and run in the simulator, the files will save to the which is shown when you hit the save button even a highlighted version of the button is saved.

Enjoy – I hope you find it as useful as I am.
