    I got excited about the title of the thread thinking that a bluetooth stack was being prepared for release.

    Then I was surprised to see what as actually being made. It looks awesome. I have never heard of this app before now and I will definitely use it.

    WOW!!!! Works amazingly, excpet how do you use the app it is covering? I'll have to replace the icon or something so it's invisible. This is so easy to use. Get poof then you can hide them so they don't appear apart from the stack.

    it adds them to stack just fine, but does that mean i now have to hide them from the springboard with poof? everytime i add an icon to the stack, it either goes behind the stack or adds it as a third icon for the dock, anyone else getting that?

    yup its stanks, i wish it automatically hid them, its not as easy as he makes it sound

    btw to tackle having ur 4th app in the dock under the stack, i put a blank app there and put ipod into the stack. also ur third icon in the stack is the one that it shows first on the stack

    Wow, this app is slick. Been waiting for it to show up on 2.x for a while and was glad to see it on Cydia just now. However, I do have a few suggestions/requests that I might as well post here:

    1. Allow the Stack to be moved around within the dock.
    2. Make it so that the Stack is its own entity within the dock, instead of covering up whatever icon is underneath it. You can work around this now by using a blank app/webclip, but it would still be a nice fix.
    3. 5-icon dock support! I'd love to have the Stack sitting right in the middle of my dock, but I don't even know if this would be possible due to the size of the Stack when multiple apps are loaded into it.
    4. Use the first icon in the Stack as the primary icon instead of the third. As an example, the default dock order on the iPhone is Phone/Mail/Safari/iPod. If I load them into the Stack in that order the Stack icon is that of Safari, not Phone which is what I'd prefer.
    5. Allow the actual moving of apps into the Stack so that they disappear from the SpringBoard, and also allow moving apps from the Stack back onto the SpringBoard. Not super necessary but would be pretty sweet.
    6. I saved this for last since I've already seen it requested, but having multiple Stacks would be pretty cool as well. For now though I'm good with one as the grid few holds more than enough.

    Let me just say that I absolutely dig this app even as it is now, but just wanted to offer some ideas for improvement based on my experience with it so far. This is definitely gonna be on my iPhone for a long time to come.

    You don't let go of the icon when you're dragging to Stack. You just touch the Stack with the icon, then put the icon back where you want it.

    Tried reshuffling the button bar icons? It's most likely under Stack. As the installation notes *did* say it only works well with 2 icons in the button bar right now.

    (To be fixed in a future release)

    Btw the reason I can't have Stack remove items from Springboard itself is because there'd be no way to get them back when you uninstall Stack. It's not user-friendly at all.

    (Yes I know you could use Poof, I recommend doing so if it works =))

    maybe a stack controller app would be a good idea, u wouldnt have t deal with hiding, and maybe u could set an option to make the stack an actual icon int he dock

    Would love that! Like the transparent up-pointing arrow that there already is.

    i wish it had 2 stacks not just one i made one for games i want another one for the rest of the apps. Also in the curved option the icons are sketchy. Other then that its a cool app i used poof and rename. I put poof under the transperency and renamed it games so it looks like a catagory.

    steventroughtonsmith,

    Two things specifically that I'm immensely appreciative of in this much anticipated release-- the fact that you maintain icon themes within the stacks grid view and the fact that stacks is quick. While I like categories, I just can't deal with the sluggish "Loading" screen/time when I click on a folder.

    Your app is just what I was looking for! Thanks,
    iPhone 3GS 16GB 3.0fw White + Jailbroken

    Multiple stacks, will they ever be possible? I really hope so. I'm using catagories in the stacks, it's cool but a stack for a catagory is b etter.

    super sick app. I like this way better than dock or categories. I second the idea of having multiple stacks and the stack being an actual icon app. But all in all super clean app.
