JTProgressHUD is the new HUD designed to show YOUR views (eg. UIImageView animations) in the HUD style with one line of code. You can see many HUDs with easy implementation, but the idea is that you want that easy implementation with HUD style (background that block views below so the user knows that something is processing), but want to show YOUR animations/views (could be your app’s animated logo).
