Some time ago I mentioned an excellent UILabel replacement that allowed for the easy creation of formatted text with a high degree of readability.

The library that I’m mentioning today also provides a UILabel replacement, and can even be used in interface builder. This library is for those times when you are looking for very fanciful text and supports shadows, and gradients.

Here’s a screenshot of the example running showing a few of the text effects that can be created:

You can find the library on Github here:

A very useful library since all you need to do is drop it right in as a UILabel replacement.
