Tagging View for iOS

I’ve been working on my iPhone app for the last few days and it requires the ability for users to tag things. For a moment I thought I can do this with built-in controls, but then I quickly realized I needed a custom control.

So I created a little tagging-class that can be pulled into the storyboard, because it’s just a view. It’s always nice to have something self-contained, so I decided to put it on Github.

You can download it here.

It allows the user to enter a new tag, which will be displayed in a nice bubble. Suggested tags can be supplied, in which case they appear above the keyboard and can be tapped to add.
