I’ve mentioned a few open source components for creating HUD displays such as MMProgressHUD, but most don’t reflect the style seen in iOS 7 and iOS 8.

Here’s an open source component called PKHUD providing a customizable Swift based reimplementation of Apple’s HUD (as seen when adjusting volume/ring, and changing the rotation switch) for iOS 8 utilizing UIVisualEffectsView for the blur effect.

PKHUD allows you to create your HUDs with several different options a title, three lines of text, an image, a progress view, a status view, and more.You can also customize whether the background is dimmed when showing the HUD and whether it has an affect on touches being received by underlying views.

Here’s an image from the readme showing PKHUD in action the iPhone and iPad:

You can find PKHUD on Github here.

A nice library for creating hud displays with iOS 8.
