iOS Table view cells with transparent background

is it possible to make a table look like messages on iPhone. So that maybe each message is a table section with an image of a bubble and on top of that bubble is a label with the message text. Can a table cell be entirely transparent so that only the bubble image is displayed without the white cell, and the border? Thanks

If you want the growing textView where you type the message, this is the one :


When you create your cell you can make the background transparant:

cell.contentView.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];

You can simply add an imageView as backgroundView.
