    Here is my idea. It would be a modification to the springboard that allowed for apps to be hidden. I am not talking about going into SBSettings and using poof to hide an app. I am thinking something along the lines of this:
    1. You hold an app until they all wiggle.
    2. On the right hand corner of the app a minus icon appears (similar to the x for deleting apps).
    3. when clicked this will hide the app. To unhide you would probobly have to open SBSettings.

    To be a good mod, this would have to be able to hide the app without respringing. I do not know if this is possible, but as I see apps like PogoPlank and Stacks v3 A2 come out I believe it is drawing nearer and nearer. One thing I noticed specifically about Stacks v3 A2 is that it can change the icon of the stack without requiring a respring.

    This is a good idea.
    If they could make Cydelete, then they could do this.

    We could probably ask Dustin Howett (creator of Cydelete)

    Hmm... thats a nice idea.

    Also, if someone makes it, make it so when you rearranging icons, the hidden icons appear so you can unhide them from the springboard.
