    Interesting idea [Lolz, I'm on my iPod too much, almost posted "iDea"], but wouldn't that be a bit out of place? I mean, if you have the icon, wouldn't it start where the top left of the icon is? We could always do some sort of window, where it only is so big and it leaves space on the bottom and right, equal to that of the top and left.

    EDIT: So I just found out it centers the icon, which means this is possible, I just have to make a template for it and it should work perfectly. Also, turns out the icons on the page before are covered by the icon/wallpaper, but the icons after it show up on top of it. I should be able to make a PSD in about 20 minutes, just need to expiriment with some things first. I'll put up an SS in a bit, once I install Screenshot.app.

    this would work, but i think the only way to load each icon is to activate it, so it would only show your 1st icon, untill you open an application then it would only show the previously activated icon

    my goal is to let you switch tabs, by scolling to each page

    EDIT------------

    actually, I was wrong this should work perfectly!

    another thing

    is the clickable area just the 59x60, or is it the entire icon? cos thatd screw up my idea majorly if it was the whole thing


    also i have no idea what you mean by tabs

    John Singh has already worked this out. Search this forum, for his thread. I believe he has a few downloads in there as well.

    here is a simple example, of what I mean by tabs... Very simple

    image one is you first page on springboard, second image is second page, you would just scroll over

    use this to organize your icons by Media/System/Tools, or however you like
