Open Source: UITableView Replacement With Swipeable Cells

You have probably noticed this in a few apps such as the Twitter app – you swipe a cell in a UITableView and it then disappears revealing new content.

I’ve come across a UITableView replacement that provides this functionality complete with animation effect so you can provide the impression that the user is uncovering hidden content.  Overall it is a very cool effect, and is great for those times when you only want the cell to a lead to a small amount of content rather than navigate to an entirely different view.

The library is TISwipeableTableView from Tom Irving and comes with a sample project demonstrating how implement the library.  It can be found on Github here:

I can think of several places where this library would have been useful wish I’d found it earlier!
