CoolButtons is a subclass of UIButton that draws glassy iOS style buttons, all using CoreGraphics and no images.
Add the CoolButton.m/.h to your project, create an instance of a CoolButton, then set the buttonColor like so.
[myCoolButton setButtonColor:[UIColor blueColor]];
CoolButton takes care of the rest and draws appropriately shaded drop shadows, gradient, inner shadow, and borders.
- Set an active state on the button so that it changes when touched
- Fix the border to be an inner glow for more accuracy to the Apple buttons
- Make a cooler demo app that shows a whole host of different buttons and maybe lets you adjust the button color on the fly via a slider
- Add additional button customization to turn on/off the various elements
