These days, the number of apps on my phone took a hundred. It's hard to navigate through apps. So I decided to develop new app, which will sort all the apps and create a folder of apps by category on your phone's Home Screen. I found out that there's no such app on Market. Yes, there are apps with which you can do it all manually (Apps Organizer, Folder Organizer, etc). But dragging all 120 apps to folders by category, it's too bad. So I decided to develop my app sorter.

Tasks, features to be performed by the sorter.
Automatically sort applications by category (how to do this is the topic of another post).
Gives you possibility to create your own own categories.
Enables the correct choice of the category, if app categories choosen wrong it.


Developing such an app has took couple of nights, and now I can show you the first alpha version. While it's raw, may slow down in some places, it will all be fixed closer to release. And now I need your help in testing the app, mostly to improve definition of app categories. I think that if the app will determine at least 50% of application categories correctly, it will be excellent result (in the intelligence app not too much).

Here is a link to the application: autofolders.apk


How to use the application.

Usability and design of the app still unfinished, as it's alpha version. It will all be fixed closer to release. In the meantime, test its intellectual abilities.


How to make it work?
Install the application on the link above
Start it
Wait 10 seconds before the application will find all of your apps and display them.
Each app will be indicated in the list of its category.
Look at the percentage of wrong app category selections.



How to create a folder of apps on your home screen?

Tap and hold on the free space on home screen and choose-> Select Shortcut -> AutoFolders -> Select the category you want to add.

Thanks for your help.


UPD. The list of categories which can determine
Communications
Tools
Play (have some problems with them)
Others



UPD1.
Roadmap
Category recognition improved
Number of recognizable categories increased
Ability to add mass change of categories (manually)
