VSCircularDial is an UIView enhancement which provides you a 360 degree scrollable dial. This component can be dropped into your project and used as it is or can be customized as per your need.
It can be downloaded from github.
1. Easy to use, just like normal UIView.
2. Fully customizable
3. Optimized for different resolutions, including iPhone, iPad and iPhone 4 (Retina Display)
4. Callbacks can be implemented to call specific methods on rotating the view.
Very similar to UIView. For VSRotatingView, you can initialize with “new” method:
VSRotatingView *rv = [VSRotatingView new];
1. Download and add the complete “VSRotatingView” folder in your project from here.
2. You need to add three frameworks in your project – QuartzCore, AVFoundation and Security.
3. Add #import “VSRotatingView.h” to the top of view controller in which you are going to use the above code and you are ready to go.
4. Function “- (void)viewCirculatedToSegmentIndex:(NSUInteger)index;” can be called in its delegate which can be used to know when view is beeing rotated and which segment is the current selected one.
Customizing this view is a lot simple. Variables could be modified in VSConstants.h to get desired functionality and the main image of dial can be replaced easily with image named “pain-cycle.png”. Complete code can be accessed in VSRotatingView.h/.m files and full modification is possible.
Two demo applications are included in the project. Project#1 shows the default functionality of this component. Demo project#2 shows how you can customize this view and show a 360 degree view like the one below:
This component can be used to make various applications like wheel of fortune, etc.
With RailsConf 2012 just round the corner, we have been scratching our heads wondering how we can contribute in our own little way and take the conference experience to a whole new level.
Well! ConfConnect is our answer.
We have been attending RailsConf year after year and really we’d pour through event agendas and printouts of the sessions we wanted to attend, touch base with people we wanted to see and arrange meeting times and places, and then struggle to find meeting places. Networking events were challenging when all we had to go on were people’s name tags, especially if all they displayed were first and last names. We worked towards changing this experience back in 2010 by first launching ConfConnect as a Rails and iOS application.
ConfConnect is an intuitive application that lets you organize conference sessions and create your own schedule. It also allows you to post feedback, comments and recommendations about the sessions. The app is particularly useful for multi-track conferences where attendees need to choose the sessions they wish to attend.
With ConfConnect we have made an effort to enhance the attendees experience at the conference by providing them a basic and easy to use application that allows them to create a personalized schedule effortlessly and one which is readily available in their pockets for reference.
We would soon be launching the updated version of ConfConnect in the days to come. This version of the application has been re-envisioned and rebuild from the ground up with the entirely new design, interface and usability.
Amidst the stiff schedule and deliveries for client projects our development has been hard pressed for time but still managed to pull it off by throwing in some extra efforts. And the application is now ready to be launched across MULTIPLE platforms – Web app (Ruby on Rails) and mobile app (for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7)
ConfConnect iOS and Windows Phone 7 app are in the middle of their respective review process and is expected to be made live soon.
Android App is available to download at – http://bit.ly/HPebRQ
Till the time we are up and running with our new application, take a sneak peek at the upcoming changes and tweaks below:
