iTunes Radio Station "Stack" Button - Style & Animation

I was curious to see if anyone had come across an example implementation of the iTunes Radio Station buttons. The button for each radio station features what seems like a 3D stack of album artwork. When these buttons are scrolled left or right, the viewable angle of the stack changes to make the stack appear 3D. Also, when the stack is pressed, the spacing between each album art decreases to make the stack of artwork appear compressed by the touch of the user.

I was looking to create a similar design in one of my apps and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to implement this. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

This can be emulated with UICollectionView, but you will have to provide the perspective maths by yourself to get the full effect.


Here is a good tutorial to create the "stack" layout.
