Harlem Shake open-sourced for iOS apps

The Harlem Shake YouTube dance meme, if you ask me, ended about three weeks ago — which I think was right around when it started. But that hasn##Q##t stopped the developers at Velos Mobile from creating an open-source Objective-C class for iOS projects that will take all of an app##Q##s standard UIViews, and shake them up, Harlem-style. Even if you##Q##re not a developer, you can see the effects of the code below. As old and tired as these meme is, it##Q##s still pretty funny to see the standard iOS controls get down to the dubstep.

As Velos Mobile says, “Please don##Q##t ship this.” Developers can add it in their own code, and we may even see some apps make videos with it, but it##Q##s a pretty much just a silly hack rather than an actual feature. Still, it##Q##s good for a laugh or two on this Friday afternoon.
