    Well, since it's been a week since Poof came out, and nobody has made any sort of launchers yet, I figured I'd make one myself.

    It's simple, and the labels don't always show, but it works, and that's what matters. Incidentally, the labels all load, and they are all there, whether you see them or not. They just don't always show. Wait a little bit with the cell off screen, the label will eventually show up. Regardless, the icons will always load.

    This will be available through Cydia soon, in the meantime, download it here: http://www.touchrepo.com/Apps/2.0/Launch.app.zip



    Update V1.1 Sorry about the sloppy first version. Version 1.1 has a few nice changes. First of all, I refuse to go back to using the UIImageAndTextTableCell; so instead of dumbing down my app, have an entirely new thread load the list. I know it's ridiculous to multithread a Launcher, but hey, "Why not?"
    Also, the "Label" bug is squished. Previously, the labels would load, but often in the wrong place. I changed the view type, and all is well on that front.
    Lastly, a small change, I updated the StatusBar to a solid black instead of the standard application gray. Download it from the same link as above.

    ...well, then what's the point of hiding apps if you want them to be launched? Especially if they're hidden by only two clicks...

    So they don't clutter your springboard?
    Great app Skylar, does/will this have a .tar file to use it with winpwn?

    see my thread about my launcher. it has a winpwn tar file and always loads the labels. plus, it loads about 3 times faster.

    So when you want to go and show your iPod to the peeps at Apple, they don't see that you are jailbroken! Just edit your .plist to change Launcher apps name to some random app, and change it's icon.png and now you have a "Hidden" application that launches your hidden apps, away from apple eyes!
