    Hello. I have a question/request for you guys...
    Can anybody make a SpringBoard mod like SummerBoard?

    SummerBoard is basically a mod that allows you to move between your app pages up-n-down not left-n-right. And it allows you to do it freely.. like in Categories app. Note: This was waaayy back when 1.x.x was here..

    But, im asking you can you do something like this for 3.x.x? This would be great mod, and i think that alot of people will download it... and it will be good for landskape themes...

    You could try pogoplank as an alternative. And I believe Summerboard was the themeing application for 1.x.x

    Your usage of SummerBoard is only half correct. Yes, it allowed up and down scrolling, but ONLY until the release of the 1.1 firmware. At that point, Apple added paging SpringBoard. Presumable, this was to allow for downloadable webclips to be added to SpringBoard.

    This change negated the need for up and down scrolling (it wasn't even possible*). The iPod touch was released with the 1.1 firmware with the 1.1.1 firmware being released very shortly after the iPod's release.

    Most users here have never seen their SpringBoard scroll up and down.

    That because he is using Stacks Or Categories. He tapped the icon right before he scrolled.

    Notice how he clicked on the icon on his dock, all the way on the left and then something popped up. That MIGHT be Stacks, I'm not sure because the back of his stack is transparent. Just to show you what I mean.. here is my springboard with a stack open:

    and when you see his, you can still see the background. Anyways, stacks does allow scrolling up and down.

    I believe Categories scrolls left/right. So I THINK he's using Stacks.
