Implementing Letterpress UI in UIKit (jazzychad.net)

Good artists copy. Great artists steal. — Steve Jobs, quoting Pablo Picasso.

Picasso never said that, or most of the things people say he said. The quote is a paraphrase of T.S. Eliot. (Lots of discussion of this previously on HN.)

Another famous wrong quote by Steve Jobs: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication", which apparently was popular around Apple in the 80s and which people attribute to Leonardo, but in fact comes from William Gaddis' first novel.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to comment on this. I've updated the post to be more factually correct.

Sorry for the off-topic comment. It's a little hobby (tracing quotes, that is, not commenting off topic).

Interesting project. I'm working on something that uses that similar style, but I'm building a lot of it with Pixate. Pixate makes the theming of the app trivial since you can compile your css with LESS.

Does anyone have an idea on how to implement the Letterpress swipe-to-delete "shattering effect" on iOS?

I want to add that in v2 as well. My current line of thinking involves animating all of the board/piece subview layers using 3d transform animations and moving them individually along paths away from the center of mass as they shatter/explode offscreen.

looks interesting, have you any plans to open source the UIKit Components?
