Pull-to-refresh makes sense when adding new cells to the top of a UITableView (as in a timeline), but it doesn't make sense as a general refresh gesture as they show in their example. Hopefully it won't start being abused too much.

Wow.. my first rails project was going to be exactly this. Almost the exact same features and UI. Kind of unsettling =)

Since you destroyed me to the punch, my only suggestion is to have some sort of tagging system, so that users can search by control type (i.e. button, facebook, alert)

Nice work!

There is and you can :)

Ahh, I see that now. I guess I was meaning a way to browse the tags, rather than just seeing related ones when looking at a specific component.

Ah, gotcha. It's on my todo list. Thanks for mentioning it. I'll bump up the priority on getting it done.

This has absolutely made my weekend. It's like an all-you-can-eat buffet where you never get full.

Like like like.

I'm the creator of this site. Let me know if you have any questions!

It'd be nice if it wasn't limited to just user interface, but cocoa libs too. Just so it's all in one place.

Check out cocoaobjects.com; I think they'll satisfy your need.

This is simply awesome. Thanks for putting it together!

thanks, tell your friends! :)

Awesome site :)

This is pretty cool, anybody know of one for android?

As soon as I have the chance to develop a seed list of Android components, I'm going to spin up an identical site for that platform.

I very much look forward to that. There a mailing list or something so I can know the moment it goes live? :-D

Not yet! Try following @cocoacontrols on Twitter and i'll announce it there for sure.

Do you also accept closed source projects? I just released one (It's on HN right now)

Well done!
