Open Source iOS Library For Creating Modal Views That Automatically Blurs The Background

I’ve mentioned some excellent controls for making in-app modal views with the most popular being the excellent UAModalPanel which is a very polished library for making modal panels within your app.

Recently I came another modal view creator that takes the extra step of freezing and blurring the background.  You can do this with modal views created using the library or with your own views.

The blurring effect is done by taking a snapshot of the background, and blurring that so any animations will appear frozen.

Here’s an image of the readme showing a modal view on a blurred background and the un-blurred background:

RNBlurModalView

You can find the library RNBlurModalView by Ryan Nystrom on Github here.

RNBlurModalView uses the simple to use KGModal library by David Keegan that can be found on Github here.

A nice simple library for creating modal views, and your users won’t be confused as to whether or not the background is still active.
