    Hi all
    I need to implement a section in my iphone application to behave like Cover flow with three labels [or more better if 3 buttons]. The centre one appears a little bigger than the other two.Swiping them left or right makes the rightmost label/button to take centre flow.
    I have seen about UICoverFlowLayer but being a part of a private framework, it is not possible to use it otherwise the app may not find a place in app store. Is there any other way to impleent this feature? Till now I have not used CoreAnimation framework. Will this framework help me in interacting with UI during animation?
    As I have to implement a lot of animation in the project that includes a group of images appearing from the background in sequence with growing size. In short my project is of type "animation with interaction". I have never used animation before in iphone. So I am looking for the right kind of framework for this [QuartzCore or OpenGL] to use but a little confused on this.
    Any idea?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the help
    Basically before showing the three images in a cover flow mode, I have to fly in these images with very small sizes of these that grows to their final size while flying in. I think I have to use QuartzCore for animation. I am little confused between using QuartzCore for iphone and OpenGl ES frameworks. Which one to use?
    As my application involves a large amount of animation with user interaction going on. Does using multiple NSTimers may cause any problem? Please suggest a littel on this.
    Thanks
