Creates an avatar image like the iOS7 for a given name


pod 'GKContactImage'


You simple use the category method with a given name and the size of the image you want to create.

self.bigImageView.image = [UIImage imageForName:@"Georg Kitz" size:self.bigImageView.frame.size];

This would create the following image.


For a more customized image, use the extra category method with more options.

self.bigImageView.image = [UIImage imageForName:@"Georg Kitz" size:self.bigImageView.frame.size backgroundColor:[UIColor blackColor] textColor:[UIColor yellowColor] font:[UIFont systemFontOfSize:18.0]];
