In the past year I’ve mentioned the RNFrostedMenu and RNBlurModalView for creating great looking blurred menus and modal views from Ryan Nystrom.

Here’s a nice tutorial from Ryan on creating blurs, and utilizing the new visual effects classes found in iOS 8.

The topics covered in the tutorial include:

How the typical Gaussian blur algorithm works
How to use blurs to improve your app’s design
Taking a screen snapshot and applying a blur
Adding vibrancy to a blur (with UIVibrancyEffect)
Creating different blur effect styles (with UIBlurEffect)

You can find the tutorial here.

A nice guide on creating blurs.
