This looks wonderful but we are overlooking one fact. RAM. Which equates to battery life. This is an amazing concept but if you put a side by side comparison of this vs all this in notification center (which was possible on ios5), it would be much faster to swipe down from ANY app and do everything in this video. It may look cool but this is already possible with jailbreak on ios5 AND ios6. But I see that this would be cool with a non-jailbroken iPhone, but why wouldn't you jailbreak if it's ALLOWED.

Would definitely pay some money to see this tweak developed. Only stipulation: animation/update and widget refresh times would have to be as good as those shown in the video. In other words, this would have to be deeply integrated and native feeling.

Now this HAS to be DONE before ANDROID pick it

This is the kind of stuff I'm hoping to see with the new iOS dude (Ives?). iOS, as nice as it is, is pretty stale. There have only been minor changes since I got my first iPhone, which ran iOS 2. Of course, iOS runs so well you could use the old cliche, "Why fix what isn't broken?" but I'd still like to see some more innovative stuff coming from future iOS.
With the jailbreak becoming seemingly more and more difficult, the iPhone 5 may be my last iPhone unless Apple really starts wowing us with iOS updates.

To be real your comment isn't that big of a deal but it just gets stupid after seeing people like you on this forum waste our time with stupid comments that have nothing to do with Apple product. Go to the Windows/Microsoft forums and be a fanboy/girl there. Stop wasting our time.

This is just taking the re-sizable live tiles from Windows Phone 8 and turning them into Android widgets. While I admit that iOS needs something new for users to play with, this would be "stealing" from the competition again. The funny part is that most people will think that Apple "Invented" it.
Also, to the guy that said this HAS to be DONE before Android. Android already has re-sizable widgets, sorry. Late to the party yet again.

I second this concept and support any measures taken to bring this to Apple's attention. Mr. Ives better recognize!!
I'd like to see this come to fruition in iOS' future

Active processes is what use battery life, things that actually cause the processor to work. Ram is merely there to help the processor have to think less. The less it has to think the better off it is.
I would argue that the less ram you have the better battery life. Because your phone is actually working less.

That being said, it also depends on the programmer's ability to effectively use the RAM and proper caching techniques.

Interesting concept, but using "wiggle" mode is not a good idea. First, it's annoying as hell to see all the icons wiggle. Second, having to hold and wait is annoying (I want to tap and go). Third, you could easily uninstall something.
Also, I don't like that it shows the icons reordering when you open the widget. What if you have a screen full of icons? Will it push them to the next page? Not user friendly if so.
I prefer the idea of having an option in settings to turn widgets off and on for apps that offer it, and then you can configure them on your screen however you want.
Just my $.02 ...

The problem is, people can come up with all sorts of ideas like this, but once they post them, Apple can't even think of developing them unless they hire the programmer or buy the rights to it, both of which apple rarely ever does. So while all these UI tweaks are pretty, don't expect to see Apple adopt them.

This is something that needs to be baked into the OS or at least allow a 3rd party to apply this mod, without the phone being jailbroken. Android has many apps. like this. Widgets are a common thing and it's absolutely fantastic!

This is definitely possible! Anyone ever use Homescreen Settings???? Very similar as far as usefulness! It would just need to be able to be resizable and constant. Otherwise, it's the same concept!
BTW, Homescreen Settings was/is a 'must have' for me and I used it daily!

If I am wrong, then what is the tweak that will allow you to access apps from the springboard.

Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

Widgets (HTML JS) cannot be written to access apps or open links on the SpringBoard
Believe me I've tried already. It would have to be a tweak of some sort written to do this
The only "app" you can get access to is media player. And then with functioning video or sound files but regardless of how they are written Apples media player takes over.
Creating a weather widget lets say, and you want to have an onclick function to open the weather app, not able to.
If you still say I'm wrong put up a vid or better yet a functioning script that does this....
