A photo browser for iOS inspired by Facebook.
Objective-C Ruby



A photo browser for iOS6 and iOS7 inspired by Facebook iOS app.

Demo project included.

It currently supports:

  • Any number of images through a data source
  • Optional title and description (with support for long description through a 'See more' button)
  • Full screen view
  • Pinch to zoom in/out
  • Double tap to zoom in/out
  • Orientation changes
  • "Swipe up/down" to hide the photo browser
  • "Done/Action buttons" to dismiss the browser or perform a few operations on the selected image



The suggested way to install the component is using CocoaPods, just include the following line in your Podfile to get the latest version: pod "AGPhotoBrowser"


There is a demo project included that shows how to use the photo browser.

  • import AGPhotoBrowserView.h in your class
  • create a new instance of AGPhotoBrowserView and set the delegate and the dataSource to your class
  • implement - (NSInteger)numberOfPhotosForPhotoBrowser:(AGPhotoBrowserView *)photoBrowser and - (UIImage *)photoBrowser:(AGPhotoBrowserView *)photoBrowser imageAtIndex:(NSInteger)index methods from the datasource
  • (optional) provide a title and a description for each image implementing - (NSString *)photoBrowser:(AGPhotoBrowserView *)photoBrowser titleForImageAtIndex:(NSInteger)index and - (NSString *)photoBrowser:(AGPhotoBrowserView *)photoBrowser descriptionForImageAtIndex:(NSInteger)index
  • show the browser calling the - (void)show or - (void)showFromIndex:(NSInteger)initialIndex methods
  • dismiss the photo browser with a completion block calling - (void)hideWithCompletion:( void (^) (BOOL finished) )completionBlock


  • add pinch to zoom gesture on images (from 1.0.4, thanks @dtsolis)
  • support orientation changes (from 1.0.6)
