These are linked to from Matt’s blog post and you see examples of their use in real world apps by following @floatlabel. It’s awesome to see this kind of collaboration and iteration in the open source design and development communities.
Check out the shot, Matt’s post, and if there’s not an implementation of the pattern for the platform you’re working on contribute your own and experiment with it to see if it makes sense for your mobile app.
