    Hi there people,

    I'm no great theme maker, in fact I've never made a theme. However, I was wondering if there was an "app" more of a mod really, that was an icon on your springboard that moved your page to the left or right, like when you touch just to the right or left of the little circles that show the current page and number of pages of your SpringBoard (that also has the little magnifying glass for the search page).
    I think a think like this could be used to make a good theme.

    Also is there a way to hide an apps icon on SB but still have it there, so that you can't see it but it will still start up when you touch it? (Apart from just making the icon for it empty)

    SpringJumps brings up a picture of each of the pages and then you touch one to move to it right?
    Because that's not really what I was looking for, I was talking about a think that would work like when you touch the bottom right or left of the screen and it shifts to the next page, without sliding your finger.

    Well, you can tap to the left or the right of the spring page dots and the pages will move...

    That's what I was looking for, but on an app, so that the touchable area could be bigger, rather than having to touch right down there.

    I see what you mean now. You could use springjumps with transparent icons, but I am not sure if you would be able to duplicate the springjump icons for each page...hmmm....

    For the blank icons thing, try Poof! or any app that has it, e.g. SBSettings or Categories.

    That would hide the application altogether though. He just wants the icon to be transparent.
