In this Guru Gotta Have It, we take a quick look at Folder Organizer for Android. With hundreds of thousands of application choices, it can be increasingly difficult to manage all of your apps easily. With the help of Folder Organizer, managing and organizing your Android apps and folders will be the least of your worries. Let’s take a look.
Folder Organizer is a highly customizable app that let’s you manage all of your Android applications in a simple but highly functional way. With this app you can create “labels” or groups like games, productivity, reading, etc. Once you have created your labels, you can easily add apps to them, choose the folder icon, customize the colors of the folder, and dynamically choose in what order the apps show inside your folder.
Another great feature of Folder Organizer is individual app management. When you install an app, you will see a notification that it is not assigned to any labels. Clicking this will bring you straight to the screen that let’s you assign a label, making adding news apps to folders super convenient. You can also rename apps and change their icons within Folder Organizer. For example “Amazon Kindle” is just to long to fit nicely, so I simply rename it to “Kindle”. Now when I add an app shortcut my Kindle app shows the name the way I want.
What would an Android app be without widgets? Folder Organizer let’s you add traditional “folders” but you can also add full blown scrollable widgets to your home screen as well. With six different widgets choice ranging in size, there is bound to be an option to fit your needs.
Last but not least is the ability to back up and restore all of this stuff. Creating labels, app shortcuts, icons, and renaming can be very time consuming. So the developers of Folder Organizer built a back up and restore option right into the app. It will export all of your settings for your labels and apps, store them on your SD, and import them when needed. If you are a ROM flasher, or just get a new device, this is a killer feature and takes the sting out of re-setup. Folder Organizer will run you $1.40 and is worth all 140 pennies, this Guru has got to have it.
