The UICalloutView (those “bubbles” you see in map view) is a control that has been mimicked many different times. with numerous popout type views.  There’s some good ones, but none have the same level of versatility as the official UICalloutView which unfortunately is only available for use with map annotations.

Nick Farina has created a new open source control with the goal of duplicating UICallOutView, and has duplicated the animations and look, and like the private class you can have a title, subtitle, and left and right content.

Here’s an image of Nick’s call out view in action:

Call Out View

You can find the control on Github here.

You can read more about the control on Nick’s site here.

Now you can add the same callouts outside of an MKMapKitView.
