Open Source Core Text Wrapper Simplifies Multi-Column Text Display (and more)

I’ve been asked a few times after I wrote a post about an open source library to simulate the iBooks style page curl effect without using any private API’s as to how to properly display formatted text on the page, and spread text across multiple pages.  Manipulating text is what the Core Text library is all about, and just yesterday I posted about a tutorial about how to manipulate text to create cool text effects with Core Text.

I found an open source wrapper that aims to simplify the process by providing a set of Objective-C classes that simplifies using Core Text, and takes care of creating multiple columns of text, and text pagination.

The wrapper is from Akosma Software, and you can read their writeup on the project here:
Core Text Objective-C Wrapper

You can find the wrapper along with a sample project on Github here:
http://github.com/akosma/CoreTextWrapper

I’m finding Core Text a bit difficult to wrap my head around, and this wrapper simplifies much of it.

Thanks for reading, please share this using the buttons below!
