    I'm not a big fan of Dashboard (use it for once a day maybe ?) however it's great idea to bring it to iPhone which gives another layer in terms of user interface.

    it would be also important what gesture you need to bring up the dashboard. double click lock button ? triple click on home button ? please at least don't touch volume button. I've tried QuickSMS and it uses volume key double click as shortcut ... it's really annoying ... really...

    Overally looking good, but I wouldn't even think of installing it if it's nothing more than "floating icons"

    The term "Springboard" was a spin-off of "Dashboard." In other words, Springboard is to iPhone as Dashboard is to OS X. It's completely pointless to have a Dashboard on the iPhone.

    I think it will clutter up the iphone more than it really needs to be. Sometimes, less is more.

    It would be nice if he would incorporate this with winterboard and have it so we could do this with all our icons...
    Lets say we poof 100% of the icons and then use this dashboard to bring up all the icons... and we would be able to arrange them in whatever config we want, size them and they wouldnt have to follow any apple designated grid pattern.

    You seem to believe jailbreaking and theft are the same word?

    (which doesn't mean I understand all the reasoning -- I believe that isn't it )

    I think this would be the coolest app ever...IF...it could basically replace the screen with a new "shell", and have that shell contain shortcuts (to apps), folders (with shortcuts), and widgets...all of which would be drag and drop anywhere.

    Now that would ROCK!

    To be honest, I am quite surprised that some iphone developer has not already come up with a replacement shell for Springboard.

    stacks is still available on cydia via the ste packaging source. I just downloaded it 2 days ago.

    as far as this app. Has cool potential for those quick things you want but dont want to start an app for them. For example notes. By the time the app launches and keyboard comes up you forget what you wanted to write.

    Sounds super cool! I hope he releases it soon
    Search Google for "Custom Firmware 3.1.2" if you don't have a Mac and are using Windows!

    Two points:

    • I don't want to continue promoting jailbreaking when it's responsible for piracy.

    • I can't leave Stack on Cydia because of the endless flood of support requests and other e-mails it brings

    I'm working on a better way that just discontinuing it, so bear with me.

    thats why i said he doesnt want to promote jailbreaking

    i think its awesome, only because alot of the notes i make i forget about, so if it was open on the home screen it would be pretty cool, i wish the notes app had a badge #
