With the addition of UIRefreshControl in iOS 6 Apple provided a great API for creating pull to refresh controls.
Here’s a control from Instructure called CKRefreshControl that provides the same API as UIRefreshControl, but can work with iOS 5 so you can simply use your existing UIRefreshControl with CKRefreshControl.
CKRefreshControl also supports the UIAppearance protocol for customization.
On iOS 6 UIRefreshControl is automatically used instead, and any customizations are forwarded to UIRefreshControl.
Here are a couple of images showing CKRrefreshControl in action from the readme:
You can find CKRefreshControl on Github here.
A nice easy way to add UIRefreshControl in iOS 5 apps.
