UIPopoverController and SplitView Matt Gemmell Saves the Day

Until now Apple provided a SplitView controller for your iPad that worked fine. However, they used it in a slightly different way in some of their own applications (like Settings).

If you wanted to implement similar features you had to roll your own controller and then worry that you've screwed something up and introduced a bug that won't appear until well after your application ships.

In steps Matt Gemmell who has produced an open source splitview controller for the iPad that offers some really cool user interface enhancements. His twitter library seems to pop up in everyone's applications. Perhaps this controller code will wind its way around as well.
