A badge is a beautiful indicator for unread news, updates or similar stuff.
Badge? You know ... the nice red circle with white text that tells you, there is an update
in the AppStore or you have new messages, …
Recently, I needed a little badge in one of my apps, but unfortunatly I found
no class in the iPhone SDK for it. The web told me there are 1000 ways to create a badge
but I recognized --- Rendering with Quartz is the best way to do it.
After a few hours I made a little class to create a flexible badge with a given
text for any kind of view. My first thought was, I want to make the class public,
because I could not be the only one with this problem.
Here you'll find all necessary information.
