This blog is a collection of code snippets, ideas, and musings about developing graphics, animation, and video software on iOS. My name is Mo DeJong and I am the author of AVAnimator a video toolkit for iOS developers. While a developer can do some amazing things on iOS, sometimes one can feel stuck in a box when Apple's APIs do not provide a way to do specific things. This blog will examine a number of topics related to dealing with graphics and animation in general and how to implement things on iOS in particular.
