I can share with you the approach.
So what you do is use transitions to change the size, opacity, location, etc. of the images that need to be displayed and then apply transformations to make them move. There are many examples on the web of how to apply each of these items in other ways so it shouldn’t be to difficult to figure out how to put together a coverflow implementation on your own.
Good luck and have fun.

Based on requests for information it seems I have not stated how to install the QuickConnect Xcode and Dashcode plugins.
Assuming you have installed the developer tools put the QuickConnect iPhone Hybrid Application folder in the folder:
To install the dashcode plugin right click on the Dashcode application and select ‘Show Package Contents’.
Copy the TemplateQuickConnectiPhone.wdgtTemplate folder into the Contents\Plugins folder.

QCiPhone continues to stabilize and harden. The latest changes included fixes that allow you to map a command to a View Control Function without having a matching mapping to a Business Control Object. This should allow you to make UI changes without doing any database or server data pulls. It works great with applications that are using Lists in the UI.
Also fixed is a defect that caused a failure if you mapped the ‘default’ command to a Validation Control Function.
I think we are getting close to a Release version!
Look at some of the older postings for ideas on how you can install and use this framework.
It is amazing how easy it can be to prototype iPhone applications. While this could be done with pencil and paper, drawing applications, presentation applications, etc. the easiest way I have found is using Dashcode.
I got a prototype done for an application I am creating with multiple data inputs and displays in a matter of hours.
Dashcode is the best prototyping tool for the iPhone that I have been able to find.
