There are many different apps that utilize views that look like the Springboard, and I’ve mentioned some great grid view components such as AQGridView and KKGridView which are great for laying out icons.

One thing those grid view components don’t supply you with is the ability to add number alerts to the side of your views like those that come up on the Springboard whenever an app receives a notification.

Today I came across a control that is designed to do just that using Core Graphics to create a view with an alert badge and shadowed icon.

Here’s an image showing the badged view from the control’s readme:

JSBadgeView

You can find the control JSBadgeView by Javier Soto on Github here.

A very useful control if you’re looking to add a springboard like view within an app.
