ImagePicker with external images 11. November 2009 um 16:46 Uhr / Programming

I just started a UIImagePickerController clone for the iPhone it is called: JPImagePickerController and is hosted on github.


The one Apple provides is great, it does what it should and does it really good. The problem is that you as a developer aren't supposed to use it for picking images which you get from the web or which you have bundeled with your application. It only works with the images you have on your iPhone/iPod Touch, the ones you can see in the Photos application.

My first idea was it to subclass UIImagePickerController and add the functionallity. But I soon read on the internet that Apple wouldn't approve such an app. So I had to build it from scratch.

It doesn't seem that hard and I got it working within a fiew hours, but there is still much work to do. I couldn't find out how to make the UIStatusBar translucent when I use the picker as a ModalViewController.

I am hosting it on github because I'd like to learn more about how to use git and I'd like other people to fork my work so we perhaps can build something better together. Oh and the licence is MIT-Licence.
