I’ve mentioned the AFNetworking library that includes methods for asynchronously downloading images from a URL.

Here’s a UIView category for displaying images from the web from Xmartlabs that presents the users with a nicely styled progress indicator while the image is downloading called XLRemoteImageView.

The nice thing about XLRemoteImageView is that you don’t need to use another external library or work in a progress indicator.  With XLRemoteimageView you can simply specify the image URL, a placeholder image, and optionally set a callback in case the download fails.

Here’s an image from the readme showing XLRemoteImageView in action:

You can find XLRemoteimageView on Github here.

A nice library if you want to add in remote image downloading and display.
