Do you like CoverFlow, the 3D interface that Apple implemented for the iPod app to let you browse through your albums when the iPhone is in landscape orientation? Would you like to use it in your own app? Apple’s Private SDK has a UICoverFlowLayer class for that, but…being private your can’t use it if you want to see your app published in the App Store.

OpenFlow is a totally custom re-implementation of the same interface, created by Alex Fajkowski with CoreGraphics and QuarzCore for the reflexes and the 3D perspective. The final result is perfect! You can possibly load all images in a single step, or rather load images on-demand in async-mode (the recommended way if images has to be dynamically downloaded from the web, and you have many to show)
