Say goodbye to messy folders and hello to auto sorting categories!

Organize your apps into categories!
- Scan the phone for installed apps
- Automatically assign a category to any app
- As you install new apps they will automatically be categorized
- Create desktop shortcuts for any category
- Customize category label and icon with pretty built in icons or your own!
- Uninstall apps directly from app or folder! (press and hold on any app)

IMPORTANT: The in-app payment permission is enabled for donations only! This app is full version and a donation will not give you any extra features! So please enjoy it for free and only give if you can!

Things to note:
- Launcher shortcuts can not be removed from the app itself (android 4.0+). You would have to remove them manually.
- There is a strange (and rare) bug with android where if an app is updated any shortcuts related to the app might disappear from the homescreen. I am not aware of any solutions to this problem yet but I am always on the lookout. Until then, if an update to App Categories removes all your homescreen category shortcuts do not worry the app itself has not lost data or your custom mappings. You would only have to re-create the shortcuts.

    I love this app, but would like the pull out category tab to reflect the order the pages are organized. Other than that, it's perfect.

    Its a great app but after last night it no longer is able to add category short cuts to the desktop.

    I always struggle finding apps on my phone. This organized all 200 of my apps automatically. Love it

    I would like to see a function to merge categories because I think there are too many categories when auto organized. For example, I'd like to merge the categories: audio/visual with music and with media into 1 category.

    This rocks!! Been looking for an app that would easily put my stuff in a common sense setup, folders for apps without the need of a decoder ring. BINGO HERE IT IS
