Pull-To-Reload UITableView

So this may be old news to you, but the official iPhone Twitter client (née Tweetie 2) has a super-nifty interface enhancement where to reload your tweets you pull down the top of the list and it gives you a prompt to refresh. Pretty cool, huh?

Well, here’s an explanation with complete source of how to add it to your own projects!

How to make a Pull-To-Reload TableView just like Tweetie 2

Working implementation available for €20 with the My App Sales source, if you’d like that, but like most things, it’s pretty straightforward once someone shows you how.

… and apropos of discussing things Twitterish, should your image there be of large concern to you, you might find amusing/educational this semi-rant: Elements Of Twitter Style. Whilst personally we haven’t actually embraced Twitter past installing Duane’s nifty WordTwit plugin to treat it as an alternative RSS feed essentially, we’ve grudgingly acquiesced that there are some feeds out there with enough interesting content to bother devoting a modicum of attention to. Yeah, we know, doesn’t sound very much like a troll, getting involved in anything social media-ish, does it. Cha, what next, signing up for Facebook? The horror!

UPDATE:

Here’s another simple and free implementation: iPhone Pull to Refresh!

And another: EGOTableViewPullRefresh!

Yet another: SSPullToRefresh!

    No need to buy it since Three20 has put together a better solution.
