    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.

    People spend 4 dollars on apps without much deliberation, but how much do those people give to charity or feel sympathy when they see homeless people? How many of them write irrelevant and useless posts without even knowing what it's like to be financially independent? Just my 2 cents

    Not sure if that was an intended slight, but since if it was it was so far of it wasnt worth the effort of defending. ..My previous rant was a poor attempt at saying go for it buy the app... support the dev..... wasn't intended to be an all defining statement and since the topic was apps not world peace.... the starbucks example was for perspective 4 bucks for something that is gone in an hour vs something you can use over and over... wasn't a judgment... and the reason I brought it up is because I am amazed by how much some apps keep me interested .....
