Thanks! Much appreciated.
Just had a crazy idea for a launcher/home screen. Imagine the app icons were let's say... plaques mounted on a wall (like the apple iPhone icons almost look), and if you tip the phone too far upright or forward (face down), they all fall off the pins and then drop freely to the bottom of the phone (near the mic), with real 3D graphics and physics, and even sound effects and vibration (similar to the Labyrinth game, or Prime Dice). Once off the pins, you could shake the phone around and they'd bounce around freely like as if they were in a box behind glass.
So you give your phone to a friend who wants to play with it...he tips it over accidentally and all of a sudden all the icons fall. Imagine the shock! To make it even more realistic, while they're still "hanging" on the "pins" they swing back and forth freely as you move the phone about similar to keys hanging on a car valet board. That would be a blast!
To reset, tip the phone onto its back and press "home" button again. It would be kinda cool to leave them floating around, and to find the icon you want to select, you shake it a bit to make it visible from behind others.
Just thinking out loud with my fingers.
