This component allows you to create sliding views in a manner similar to the Path 2 and Facebook apps.

While there are several open source components that provide for sliding views I really like this control.

The reason this component stands out for is that the developer has gone through the trouble of adding shadowing and bouncing animations and view close, supports rotation and allows tweaking of the panning  behavior.

Here’s a video demonstrating this component in action:

The component is VideDeck from Tom Tom Adriaenssen and you can find the Github repository here.

Complete instructions along with an example project are provided.

To really see the beauty of this control you’re going to want to play with the example yourself.
