    well i have a sweet background theme, and the pics change every 10 seconds or so, but all the apps are in the way. maybe someone could make an app (if its not already out) to hide all icons on the home screen, where you could just see the background change.

    Is called Poof.

    It hides all your apps, but you can't get to them?

    Or get Categories try putting them in a category and just having the category in your dock.

    And btw movie backgrounds or whatever their called eat battery life.

    well i know about that, but i was wondering of just a quick app, that when you touch it, it just hides all of your icons and just shows the background, then when you hit the home button, it closes the app.

    i think this would be good if i want to show the pictures as a slide show (maybe thats another app idea to show all your pics in a slide show, pictures changing every 5 seconds).

    and my battery life is amazing compared to other peoples. i have mine at full brightness and using it for a week in the cold up north, the thing still has more than half battery. i only really charge the thing every 1 - 2 weeks, depending how much music/ phone i use

    try using delnoch theme, and put ur video wallpaper in the theme. I don't think theres an app that hides everything just use SBSettings and manually hide them all

    just a tip:

    springboard REALLY doesnt like it when you hide ALL your applications.
    i'd suggest using iblank to create at least one blank app. If you hide them all, your springboard will crash.

    i learned a valuable lesson from hiding my apps. not only SpringBoard crashes, but you get stuck at the SWoD. Terrible.
