    I have an idea for a package that i think could become very popular.. The concept is to recreate the "Cover Flow" that was first feautured on the 3rd Generation iPod Nano and the iPod clazzics that ce out around the same time. Im not talking about the cover flow where you swipe to one side move your album collection- im talking about how how at their main menus the ipods would show your album artwork slide along the right side of the screen, one by one with a fading transition between each album. This wasnt only a great feature because it looked simply amazing, but it also served as a reminder of some of the music in your library that you forget about. Sometimes its great to remember how much you liked some of your old songs...

    At this point, i assume that you know what im talking about.

    I think that someone should recreate this feature for the iphone as a wallpaper (possibly for BossPaper?). i know that it might take up a lot of RAM as a wallpaper, but there must be another way to do it right?

    I have no programming skills at all so does anyone want to give it a try or know how i can suggest it to saurik or any other skilled iphone programmer? If you do make this into a package, mention me as the creator of the concept

    I think it sounds like a good idea in general, but I don't see it happening. I think that it would take up to much RAM.

    OT: Shizer why do you type your punctuation like this ?

    That was my first thought but think about it: it wAs done on a little tiny ipod Nano!! Perhaps someone. Could figure out how by looking through a Nano's system files right?

    It's not as simple as taking the file from one device and planting it into another and it working magically. It takes significantly more work than that.

    I would love to, but I won't have anytime to work on it, unfortunately.
