Chris Miles has written a custom UIView that displays popup “bubbles” that automatically orient themselves based on the location of the target view. This source works equally as well on both the iPhone and iPad.
The popups have a number of configurable items. They can be animated to either slide or popup onto the display. Once visible, they can be dismissed either by tapping the screen or after a programmed delay. The background and text colors can also be adjusted however you like.
The project can be downloaded from github: CMPopTipView.
