    Default Using Launcher? We need a "hide and show apps" app!
    Installer.app and Launcher.app are great, but because of Launcher, I do not need all the extra app icons on my desktop - I'd love to have just the default apple apps, and launcher and installer. I've been manually editing displayorder.plist to make this happen, but I have to manually do it every time I add a new app. It would be great if there were a 3rd party hide and show apps app that would edit displayorder.plist for me right on the iPhone, or if Installer had an option to hide new installs from the desktop.

    Just an idea.

    I was thinking the same thing. This is a good idea to save space for important apps

    You can already do this by editing your DisplayOrder.plist.

    The point is to do it quickly and easily on the phone itself...I already knew about (and am currently using) the DisplayOrder.plist method to do this, but it's a pain to edit and upload everytime a new app comes out.

    not true, icons without any entry show up on the desktop by default

    i still think it would be awsome if you could scroll through your homescreen.

    I would love to be able to add Installer.app into launcher and just launch all my installed apps from that icon. See this thread for my progress...

    I think it would be a great improvement, to have a hide/show feature integrated into the launcher.app. It shouldnt be very hard to have launcher edit the displayorder.plist. It would eliminate a lot of extra work for the end user, not to mention automate the entire process. and make installer and launcher the only icons needed on the home screen

    Yea it would be the greatest mod since installer and Ilauncher. So who's working on it and whens it gonna be ready for use?
