so heres the idea:

dockprefs is pretty cool, and i think it could be implemented into the dock itself as appflow. so when you are on the springboard, this modified dockprefs is ALWAYS in the place of the lower dock. NO folders, just the apps (select which ones in modified docprefs). and make it so you can let your finger off and have to physically select the app with another tap. my dockprefs is right-heavy and is hard to slide leftwards.

so, in a nutshell: dockprefs without folders (apps only), always on the springboard in the dock location, and make it so you have to tap to open apps.

or potentially just make it so that the DockPrefs JUST has apps (like 3-5 or so). i dont need to have access to a ton of apps for quick opening...
