    I was playing with appflow and earth.app and just had an idea for a similar application. Im not sure the best way to describe it but here it goes anyway.

    Just picture a globe on your springboard that you can control the direction it spins with a flick of you finger, up down left right any direction you want and stop it on a dime with a single tap.

    Now picture that globe covered in application icons now when you stop it with that tap and double tap the icon you want the icon pops up off of the globe and centers and pops out at you. Now you tap it again and a list of options pop up, Launch app, set as home button ext.

    There would probably be a limit to the amount of apps that would fit on the globe but I have two solutions for this. Ether have the icons shrink to fit more as you download more apps or have multiple globes that can be accessed via small dots or numbers you can tap at the bottom of the screen like flicking through pages on you springboard.

    How kick ass would this be to have set as your home button!!

    What do you guys think?

    Just imagine it spinning every which way.

    I dont want to go bugging people. isn't that what this section is for? If a developer sees it and likes it they can make it. I hope they do though!

    Maybe I will anyway. I really want this!
