There’s no question about the high popularity of book and magazine apps in the iPhone and especially the iPad store. In the past I’ve listed some great libraries that allow you to easily make a magazine/book iOS app from a PDF or a set of images.  I’ve also mentioned a tutorial for getting your app to integrate with the Newsstand.

The control I’m sharing today allows you to create a navigation menu similar to that found within the iBooks app supporting drag and drop of the different books shown, edit the books on the view, easily add a custom header which can support a search bar, and more.

Here’s a video demonstrating this iOS control in action in the iPhone simulator:

The control is GSBookShelf from Xinrong Guo and can be found on Github here.

A great navigation control for anyone looking to create an app with multiple magazine issues or books.
