Springboard Expose for the iPhone [Video Concept]

Springboard Expose for the iPhone [Video Concept]

Posted October 5, 2009 at 11:00am by iClarified
Swedish design firm Ocean Observations has created a video to show how expose might function on the iPhone.

The video shows the home button functioning similar to F3 on Mac OS X. Pressing the button shows thumbnails of your different Springboard pages; letting you jump quickly to the one of choice.

Not sure how this idea would work with more than 9 pages.

Take a look below...

Why would you wanna see this as an app? There's no way this could be an app, it would have to be an addon to the OS to function properly.

Very Nice! I bet we wont be seeing this in the App Store any time though! I would really like to see a rotating SpringBoard! Not just the words, the WHOLE shibang!

nice add-on but, spotlight wins. not even making folders with categories can win. spotlight is really that functional and it can be hotkeyed to the home button. HOWEVER, the cool factor of this blows spotlight away so why not have it =].

I like it as an selectable alternative in the settings menu or just a added feature so you don't have to keep flipping page after page but it shouldn't replace the page flip. I myself just use spotlight to go to the apps I don't feel like flipping to, this is a good addon.

What if you could see most of this screen when just using the already included search-function; the page to the left of the 1. homescreen? It would be great :-)

For more than nine pages, the thumbnails could shrink even further in size. It would work the other way around as well. So if you have fewer pages, the thumbnails would be larger. But this being a concept, we used nine pages as it is more visually appealing.
