How to Use

Step 1: Extend UMMoreAppsViewController (Define Content):

- (void) loadView {
  [super loadView];
  UIImage* normalBanner = [UIImage imageNamed:@"iWinner.png"];
  [self.appImages addObject:normalBanner];  
  UIImage* smallBanner = [UIImage imageNamed:@"iWinner_small.png"];
  [self.appQueueImages addObject:smallBanner];  
  [self.appHeaders addObject:@"UM's iWinner"];   
  [self.appDescriptions addObject:@"UM's iWinner is an..."];
  // define more apps here ...
}

Step 2: Implement delegate methods:

- (NSString*) title {
  return @"More Apps by ultramarine-ui";
}

- (void) teaserTouchedWithIndex: (int) index {
  NSString* url = @"http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xyz/id101010101?mt=8";
  [[UIApplication sharedApplication] 
      openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:url]];
}

Step 3: Display the UIViewController:

- (void) showMoreApps { 
    MyMoreAppsController* moreAppsController =
        [MyMoreAppsController new]; 
    [moreAppsController presentFromViewController:vc];
    [moreAppsController release];
}

Image Sizes

The main teaser uses images that are displayed in full width in landscape mode and only partly in portrait mode. This means that texts and important elements should be on the left side of the images since the right side of the image won't be visible in portrait mode.

The sizes are:

  • iPad, Landscape: 624x288 (visible in portrait mode: 368x288)
  • iPhone, Landscape: 390x180 (visible in portrait mode: 230x180)
  • Small teasers are using 90x60 pixels in either interface orientation on the iPhone and 144x96 on the iPad.

If you have an universal app you can just provide the iPad images, since the sizes mentioned above have the same ratio, they will be automatically scaled down (by UIImageView) on the iPhone. If you prefer you can also provide a seperate set of images for each, iPhone and iPad.

To support the Retina Display just have the usual @2x files located in your resource bundle.
