    this is a thought that has been in my head since i installed the dock app. if you dont kno what it is, its an app that pulls up all your apps and expands them as you roll over, you can access all of them from that menu. if you have a mac or have seen the dock on a mac then you know what it is from that. look at this video for a GREAT example

    i was thinking there could be an app that worked like the dock on the mac does. there could be mini icons on the dock and as you scroll the expand and you could use the apps from the dock. any thoughts left here would be cool, if you have any idea how to get this to work that would be awesome. another idea i had was to make the dock appear on teh side of the screen instead of the bottom, which would give you access to more apps then just the ones that fit on the bottom of the screen. again thoughts would be great

    theres already a Dock.app that does something similar to the mac docks.

    He's already knows that, he is implying there should be a better one that is more similar to the Mac dock.

    So with your idea the icons would expand as you dragged your finger across, then to launch the app release the finger like Dock.app.

    That seems to be the only plausible way to get the icons to expand.

    Basically, i would like to have that instead of having a little glow in the corner it would be all your apps in mini size to fit it, then as you slide it would expand and then accessing the apps by removing your finger

    maybe, someone could make the home screen horizontal, and put the dock on the bottom.

    That would be pretty cool....

    i had a thread on this idea, i guess no one understood. so no one replied.
    also it would be awesome to have the bounce effect after you select the icon. just a thought. =/
