I’ve mentioned a number of custom components for working with map views, most recently a component allowing you to create a nice circular indicator to mark the a specific area on a map.

Here’s an open source component that makes it easy to insert completely custom callout views called DXCustomCallout from s3lvin.

With DXCustomCallout you can use a custom image as the callout image for your pin, and a a view to be shown as the annotation when the pin is clicked. You can configure the colors, and animations with a nice expanding animation shown as the default animation. An example project is included.

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