Apple CoverFlow in Blackberry

Does anyone know the equivalent of Apple's Coverflow GUI for the Blackberry?

 

Is there a library for this available yet?

 

AppWorld uses it. Basically, I would like a horizonatally scroll through pictures in an album with some graphical effects like a drag-like or smooth scrolling like feature.

You won't find anything like this in the RIM API's. You'll have to invent it.

 

I would probably start with a HorizontalFieldManager, with horizontal scroll enabled.
