The Path 2.0 app has inspired a number of great open source projects with it’s beautiful interface, and I’ve mentioned a number of custom open source iOS user interface controls inspired by the Path 2.0 app.

This project from Brian Gesiak uses a custom UIView as a container to mimic the way the path app creates a parallax scrolling effect (content at the “front” of the view” scrolls faster than content at the back) inspired by the timeline view in the Path 2.0 app.  Also the control adjusts for device orientation.

Here’s a small animation from the readme showing the parallax effect:

You can download the control MDCParallaxView on Github here.

A nice simple way to add the parallax scrolling effect to your views.
