    So I was outside having a smoke when it came to me...

    To make the iPod as clean as possible, I would have to make it so that the dock icons were invisible as well!..

    Well, low and behold, here is what I've come up with.

    Now, I know a lot of you are confused, so I will explain how it works right now...

    When you slide your finger over one of the 5 tiny dots at the bottom of the screen (where the dock should be), the ipod will automatically darken whatever icon is there. So, knowing this, in Photoshop, I created icons of the words of each dock icon I use in the same color as the background that is being used, and wrote the words of each corresponding application (music, photos, videos, games, and apps).

    So if you forget where "VIDEOS" is on the dock, just slide your finger over one of the dots, and iPod will tell you if that is it or not. If it isn't what you are looking for, just simply slide your finger off of the dot, until the word goes away. This way you won't go into the wrong app and have to exit out again.

    Here is a screenshot with one of the words being shown!

    i personally think this is preety cool and interesting idea, yet i definitely wouldn't want have my ipod touch like this. yes, it may be very clean and sleek, but it's too boring for my taste. I would find it very annoying and time wasting to have to slide my finger over the icons when ever i forget where the one im lookin for is. I need some more color too.

    It's an interesting idea... It seems like a lot of hassle though...

    It seems like you executed the idea well though.

    Hm.. it's ok.. but while invisible may look sleek. I think a sleeker setup would have a text-based dock that has an aqua bar that says something like:
    [music|videos|photos|store]

    just my $.02

    Thanks guys.

    Why? Because I can, and because it is innovative.

    This thread was created just for the quick idea. I don't really know what to make the wallpaper as, but if you have any ideas, please let me know. I know you can use this idea to create something truly fantastic.

    I agree.. the fundamental idea of this theme is a great start to making something very new. I've given you my idea.. i'm thinking those white dots could stand out a little bit more..had to triple take the picture to see them.

    Brilliant Idea Jodymitoma, It is the kind of idea that will start a new wave of themes. Just as the WMP theme sparked a new wave of themes.

    EDIT: I just realised that is basically what optikal said
