    What are some good folder organizer apps? I tried out Folder Organizer and Speed Dial, but neither were what I needed. The Folder Organizer failed in that I couldn't put folders in the FO folder, and Speed Dial, because it was limited to only 8 icons per. Are there any organizer apps that overcome these shortcomings?

    I use Apps Organizer. It does everything that I need.

    I don't know if this will help at all but Smart Shortcuts is an awesome organizer for for apps, contacts, and bookmarks.

    I was just thinking about using App Organizer today. Does the desktop widget use much in the way of resources? How could I tell?

    If you are thinking about using Apps Organizer, you might want to look at Folder Organizer because I believe that Folder Organizer is the "big brother" of Apps Organizer (in that it will do more folders and organizing). I use Folder Orgnizer and think it's great.

    Folder Organizer is great. you can put folders in other folders. Folders are organized by labels

    yeah, but it looks like smart shortcuts does the same thing as the paid version of app/folder organizer.

    Yeah, you can't DRAG a folder into a Folder Organizer folder/label, but you can have as many levels of nesting labels/folders as you want.

    Say I have one big label/folder called Internet, and a smaller label/folder called Browsers. If I attach the Internet label to the Browser label/folder, then when I open the Internet label/folder, I'll see all the apps I've labeled "Internet" as well as the Browser label/folder, which I can then tap to see only the apps (or other items) that have the Browser label.

    With Folder Organizer, you can put bookmarks and shortcuts into the same folder; With Smart Shortcuts I could not put them in the same folder.

    I am an advocate for FO.

    Are there any apps that mimic folders in that you can put folders within other folders? That is, if I wanted to get to wireless tethering I'd select Apps>Internet>Tether>Wireless Tethering.
