Image downloading is a common issue that can affect the usability of an app and here’s an open source library from Pinterest that provides remote downloading with a wide number of useful features called PINRemoteImageManager.

Some of the features of PINRemoteImager include:

  • Prevents multiple downloads of an image even if multiple calls are made
  • Uses GCD to work with multiple threads so decoding does not slow down main app thread
  • Supports PNG, JPG, and decoding of WebP images
  • Progressive JPGS with a nice blurring effect to show download progress
  • Works with animated gifs

You can find PINRemoteImage on Github here.

A nice image downloader.
