    Category: Springboard Replacement​
    Springboard. It's the major part of any persons life, if they own an iPhone/iPod Touch. People have discussed this, and agreed, that this is the most perfect way to use the iPhone.

    Two developers weren't happy with that. So they set out making their first Obj-c Project, a Springboard UI replacement.

    This. IS. POGOPLANK!

    A pogoplank screen

    When you install pogoplank, you are immediately shown at this screen. Different, huh? Well, this is just like categories, but for springboard

    There are 5 different folders on screen at any one time. You can move these folders using your thumb in a scroll-like fashion.

    Different folders, different apps!

    You can either swipe down/up in the screen and the wheel will move to different folders. You can also tap on the folder you want (if it isn't in the middle) and it will go to the middle.

    One category to rule them all!

    When you tap the icon that is in the middle, you are presented with a list. A list of applications, that you have specified. If you want to launch an application from here, simply tap the icon and it will launch.

    Smooth criminal (and animation!)

    When you exit/enter any application, the folders will move in/out of place, smoothly. At 24 frames a second! :O

    List is too big? Get supersized!

    If you love your long lists, you will be glad to know your list can go as long as you want! Now, there is no more springboard restrictions XD!

    Need to switch to springboard? One tap of a button, and your done!

    Here is the PP settings. You can switch from springboard to PP and vice versa.

    That category is like, so lame.

    Here you can change the category names and add applications and the like.

    Like, get a new look, totally!

    Themeing. You can change the opacity of everything from the wheel to the folder. You can also download themes and apply them to PogoPlank.

    Final Thoughts
    This will revolutionize the iDevice. That is all. Trust me on this one. This app uses less ram as it doesn't load the apps until you press the category so it saves you ram as well

    I just Purchased it and while I like the concept the themes suck. Hopefully with some new themes it'll get better.

    Hey all. Just downloaded it, opened PP Settings, created folders and selected the apps to be placed in it. Now, how do I turn it on. It says it’s enabled when I open the app, but when I respring or reboot, nothing.

    Try reinstalling it. For me it was enabled by default.

    Why is this in the iTunes App Store reviews section? It isn't an App Store app.

    The text and the actual folders just look unprofessional to me. It looks like a homemade theme basically...
