UICollectionView Subclass Library Adding Pinterest Style Grid View Functionality

Previously I mentioned  an excellent UICollectionView tutorial, and the UICollectionView replacement PSTCollectionView for users not yet using iOS 6.

I’ve also mentioned some user interface controls that for creating Pinterest style grid views.

Specifically what these views allow you to do is specify the width of each column, and then add in views and automatically add the views to the best suited column.

Nelson Chiahsen has created a library adding PInterest functionality as a UICollectionView subclass.  You can also use it with PSTCollectionView.

Here are a couple screenshots from the readme showing UICollectionViewWaterfallLayout in action:


You can find UICollectionViewWaterfallLayout on Github here.

A very nice UICollectionView enhancement.
