There two different screens, Live and Leaderboard, and I need to switch between them.

Is there any sort of iOS standard for handling the UI for that?

Right now I've just got a button at the top right called "View" where a user can tap and then select which view they want (Live or Leaderboard), but it feels a little off. Not sure if it's the word "View" or if it's something else that's bothering me.

I'm assuming you don't want to use a navigation bar, or there's already a navigation bar in place? – Mark D Jul 25 '12 at 13:02
Already a nav bar. – Shpigford Jul 25 '12 at 13:11

What about adding a UISegmentedControl to switch views as the App Store does?

Old App Store with two view Selections:

Old App Store Screenshot - 2 views

New App Store with three view selections:

New App Store Screenshot - 3 views

This was also asked on SO from a programming perspective.

The BBC iPlayer iPad app uses this too (in their house colours) – Andrew Leach Jul 25 '12 at 16:14
