Usage is easy:

Add the dependency to your Podfile:

pod 'BSModalPickerView'

Run pod install to install the dependencies.

Next, import the header file wherever you want to use the picker:

#import <BSModalPickerView/BSModalPickerView.h> // or <BSModalPickerView/BSModalDatePickerView.h>

Finally, present the picker when necessary (say on a button touch handler):

self.values = @[ @"Apples", @"Bananas", @"Grapes" ];
BSModalPickerView *picker = [[BSModalPickerView alloc] initWithValues:self.values];
[picker presentInView:self.view withBlock:^(BOOL madeChoice) {
  if (madeChoice) {
    NSLog(@"You chose index %d, which was the value %@", 
  } else {
    NSLog(@"You cancelled the picker");
BSModalDatePickerView *datePicker = [[BSModalDatePickerView alloc] initWithDate:[NSDate date]];
[datePicker presentInView:self.view withBlock:^(BOOL madeChoice) {
  if (madeChoice) {
    NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
    [dateFormatter setDateStyle:NSDateFormatterLongStyle];
    NSLog(@"You chose the date %@", 
      [dateFormatter stringFromDate:datePicker.selectedDate]);
