iOS Photo Browsing App: Custom Transition

I was wondering if there was a way to implement a transition that zooms in on the item selected. This is the same animation that is seen on the springboard of ios 7 that zooms into the app when you click on it

If you just want to zoom in on a photo and not transition to another viewController. Using UIViewAnimation should be enough.

All you need to do is figure out which image was clicked and call this:

- (void)showAnimated:(BOOL)animated withImageView:(UIImageView *)imageView
    if (animated) {
        imageView.transform = CGAffineTransformIdentity;

        [UIView animateWithDuration:0.5f animations:^{
            imageView.transform = CGAffineTransformMakeScale(1.5f, 1.5f);
