An app that keeps your apps organized?
If it’s not entirely obvious, organization and technology are what I’m all about. And writing that sentence made me a little lightheaded from the excitement.
I found these apps for the iPhone and Android phone that will keep your phone neat and organized:
It took me a few minutes to figure this one out for my Android phone, but now I get it. When you begin, all of your apps are in the ‘Others’ folder. When you click on an app it gives you options for “move to another folder”, “add to home”, “rate & comment”, “show details” and “uninstall”.
It’s nice to have everything right there instead of having to go into settings, then manage applications, then scrolling down to find the program.
The “move to another folder” option enables you to organize your apps into different categories like you see above.
I am curious to see what someone would put into the ‘my lover’ folder…
I like that I can take all of my daughter’s Princess and Dora games and put them into a folder she can access instead of having them take up so much of one of my home pages.
And the price is right – free.
This one for the iPhone seems like it has a few more options to organize your phone’s apps. AppButler doesn’t create folders, but it allows you to organize your apps on screen using app and game indexes. You can register up to 20 different app categories,. It also has the option to number your screens making it easier to find your apps.
I personally like that you can use AppButler from your iPhone, iPod touch or directly in iTunes on your computer.
The girly geek in me also likes that you can create icons from your camera’s photos.
You can find AppButler in the iTunes app store for $0.99.
First, in order to use this app, you need to jailbreak your iPhone.
For you non-geeks, jailbreaking is a process where the iPhone’s firmware is modified to allow unsigned code to be run. This helps you gain access to files that Apple doesn’t allow you to. There are different methods on how to jailbreak an iPhone and from what I’ve read, it is legal.
Categories seem to be very similar to the Android’s App Mate, where you create category folders and assign your apps to a folder to cut down on the amount of home screens you have. Once you add a category and pick an icon, it will generate a list of all of your apps. All you have to do is tap the app to add it to that categories folder.
Apps Organizer is also for Android phones and also organizes apps into category, or label folders. Above is what the main page looks like. Just add a label, select, and a list of your apps appears. Check the box for the app you want to add to that label and voila.
You can also click on an app from the “Apps” list and a list of the default labels, and any labels you created, will appear. Just check to add the app to a specific label.
You will have to add the label folder to home in order for it to appear on your home screen.
Apps Organizer has a lot more icon pictures to choose from than the above mentioned App Mate. But other than that, they are very similar. And both are very free.
