    Someone should really make an app that launches other apps, so springboards wont be so cluttered. Anyone have the software to do so?

    This would be very simple. You just use a terminal to launch an app, then hide it behind some GUI. Wont happen though, apps can only function in their app folder. So can't happen, apps can't use other apps or be plugins for anything. Apple has strict rules.

    I mean that you have a single app called "Launcher" or something, and within that app. you have all the other apps you've downloaded instead of having it all over the springboard.

    I thought it would be simple, because the Jailbroken installer app already had an app like this called launcher, and it worked really well. so its not possible?

    Not possible, unless you make a agreement with Apple.

    Not with apples strict rules it wont. They denied Flash because it was a plugin to Safari, which is against the rules for the SDK

    Is it that it cant be made with the SDK? or that it wont be accepted by apple? because 2.0 will be jailbroken soon, so all unaccepted apps can still be released
