    Is there a mod/app out there that would change your home screen wallpaper to the current song your listening to. I did a search and found one thread but it didn't do justice for me. If there's not an app like this, it shouldn't be to hard to make I don't think.

    Well the closest thing to that that I know of is SnowCover which is a lockscreen mod that shows ur album cover on ur lockscreen (on a cool little cd case or vinyl case) and you can even control your music from there (skip song, pause, play, rewind the song, etc.)

    I don't know if there is a wallpaper mod like that though...

    Well the album art changes at the now playing menu as the song changes so if you can somehow link the now playing to the homescreen...

    yea it was your thread haha. send him a pm and ask him and see what he says.

    i had snowcover but i updated to 4.0 and i dont think its compatible yet.

    If id does become a mod it would lay over your wallpaper not replace it so you could still see your wallpaper behind it.

    Now that I thinkabout it (and look at my springboard) with the status bar at the top and the dock at the bottom there is a slightly less rectangular squarish background area. If it was themed properly you could even put the songname in somewhere (where those stupid dots are?).

    If someone would make the app that would work very well.
    Replace the page indicators with the song name and artist.
    Too bad there isnt anyone who would be willing to try.
    I would but i havent the slightest idea how to. I used to hack ipod videos, touches are very different lol
