About a year ago I mentioned the open source WhirlyGlobe 3D iOS Globe Library which is a great component for adding interactive 3D globes within your apps.
The component does have a number of drawbacks and there are some difficulties with getting the component to run, and using with threads.
The developers have created a new enhanced WhirlyGlobeComponent that takes care of these problems providing a framework that can be dragged into your apps, and you can be running very quickly. There’s also a number of convenience methods wrapping up the most commonly used functionality of the component.
Here’s a video demonstrating the new WhirlyGlobeComponent and outlining the new features:
You can download the WhirlyGlobeComponent distribution (Still in beta) from Github here.
You can read more on the Mouse Bird Consulting site.
A great component that is now much easier to use.
