Alternative

Even though this lib was used in a few products on App Store, it’s still an experimental project. Frankly, there’re some nice competitors out there guarantee both compatibility and stability. And the most outstanding one is ZCAnimatedLabel. I’d like to recommend it for production use.

And finally, an Android port.
