Exploring the Stacks Feature on iPhone Devices

Recently, I took the opportunity to watch that Leopard guided tour that seems to have caught everyone’s attention this week. One glaring observation was Apple’s apparent infatuation with iTunes—it’s integrated throughout Leopard, from the seamless toolbars to the Finder sporting a CoverFlow interface and intuitive sidebars.

It wouldn’t be a stretch to nickname Leopard as the ‘iTunes OS’.

Looking ahead, perhaps in a few months, it would be great to see some of Leopard’s features enhance the functionality of our iPhones and iPod touches. For now, we have this ingenious modification—someone has ingeniously implemented Leopard’s stack functionality onto the iPhone’s little dock.

It’s quite a neat trick—imagine transforming all four icons on the dock into stacks, thus maximizing application accessibility without the clutter.

With the upcoming release of the SDK, and considering the current state of those with jailbroken iPhones, additional features like these will become increasingly necessary. Apple has clearly taken inspiration from both iTunes and the iPhone for their new operating system, and now it might be time to start reapplying these innovations.

Thanks, Steve!
