If anyone's interested, I converted this lib a while back so it didn't depend on jQuery:

It blew my mind when somebody pointed out that Trello uses something like this to fill in the background color on card images.

Do you know of anything similar for iOS?

@SoleneMa & @bengold - I saw a few examples of code to do this (and have used them myself) whilst developing ColourColor. I'll dig them out and get back to you. EDIT: here's a solution by the guys at Panic. It's for Mac (based on the coloured cells in iTunes 11), but can easily be converted to iOS. If I find the other examples then I'll let you know.

This is awesome! Reminds me of what Pinterest does as thumbs are loading: Pinterest Makes Loading Smoother By Displaying Primary Image Color Behind Images: http://productdesigninspiration....
