Open Source iOS Control For Easily Creating A Flowing Image Thumbnail Grid View

I’ve mentioned a UICollectionView layout and some custom controls for creating Pinterest-like waterfall grid views for images and text.

Here’s a new control called IIIThumbFlow from Sehone that allows you to create this style of flowing view using images and adds a number of features beyond that within the previously mentioned controls.

With IllThumbFlow you can specify a thumbnail image for each selectable view, reuse cells, change the number of columns dynamically, get the index of an image when tapped and the control automatically caches the images.

Here are a couple of images showing IllThumbFlow in action:


You can find IllThumbFlow on Github here.

A nice control for displaying images, if you’re looking to display images and text have a look at the previously mentioned Pinterest style custom UI controls.
