    Default Request- CoverFlow Launcher?

    Is it possible that anybody could make a launcher for iPhone with Cover Flow? Somehow like, extract the coverflow from the iPod and use it to display 3rd-party apps rather than albums? I would LOVE this app as I like using launchers but the ones out there right now aren't too good-looking. Anybody else interested?

    I couldn't launch cover flow even for my albums. How can I do this? Can I see videos in iPod in cover flow too?

    @ jakesonaplane: I remember some topic here about someone playing around with coverflow and having a simple demo for the iPhone, so it's possible.

    @ag_oo7: start playing some song, and it's cover will appear. Rotate the iPhone, and you'e in coverflow.

    He's mentioning about making apps in coverflow, not using coverflow

    who doesnt know how to use coverflow on an iPhone ? @@

    you see coverflow is actually a high technology of mac os x which is one of apple's important patent

    didnt you realize that the coverflow always create the reflection itself which fits each of the album automatically ? furthermore it still works soo smooth and the user interface is really amazing. Just see how it rotates and how it displays both its album and songs list and you'll know=P

    thats why none of the companies outside managed to copy coverflow when they planned to launch an iPhone killer. Because they is no way to make a coverflow unless you know the details of mac os x or how does iTunes actually work But who knows all these except Apple ? No one

    and we're still creating images manually just to make a reflection for the dock icons and we even need to recreate a reflection to match the new icons again when we reorder them.

    This guy attempted to reverse engineer the iPod app and work out how the Cover Flow class worked but was unsuccessful so instead ported code from Leopard. I'm pretty sure it isn't patented fuiyo.

    Yeah, i've seen the POC before, it is unpolished to say the least, we might be waiting a while on this one, guys.

    You may be pleased to learn that one of the "hidden preferences" for SpringBoard that Erica discovered causes it to generate the reflections on the fly. It's the "Use New Dock" option.
