Open Source: Library For Easy Colorful Animated Information Popup Bubbles

Several weeks ago I mentioned the excellent WEPopover controller that allows you to implement iPad style popovers with a customizable background on any iOS device designed to provide the same functionality as a UIPopover.

I’ve come across another library allowing you to make popup bubbles with a similar look to the UIPopover elements, but designed specifically for displaying information. ┬áThese informative popup bubbles have custom animations – they can slide in or pop in, can be provided custom colorings, and automatically orient and resize.

The library is known as CMPopTipView from Chris Miles.

Here’s a quick video demonstration of the CMPopTipView demo in action:

You can find CMPopTipView on Github here:

A great way to provide your users with some quick information.
