Chiming in with one of my releases, as somebody suggested I do I'm sure you've all heard of my previous Folders application that was well featured, though perhaps not too user friendly. Well, here's a post about the on-device branch of the application



The boring details are on my site, but since this is XDA, I'll go a little in depth. The application allows folder entries to be created, which can then be pinned to the start menu. To add applications to them, since I don't have interop access (if someone wants to give me a link on how to use the file system on Samsung 1st gens, I'd love to take a look at it. Can't find anything after Mango), the application searches the Marketplace and pulls down the proper GUID and application image. Built-in system applications can also be added, which are hard coded. If you want to be creative, you can enter your own GUID, but it won't have a custom image. Of course, this is all subject to change if I can get some ideas on how to smooth out the user experience, but it's a work in progress

So far, it looks like this:
Features:
-Allows adding Marketplace and System applications into folders, which are then pinned to the start screen
-Now pin websites into the folders, too!
-Regional Marketplace support (en-US, en-GB, fr-FR, etc)
-Smooth interface
-Completely on device
-Requires only developer unlock, no interop required!

And planned:
-Custom tiles implementation
-Smoother interface
-Perhaps interop support for people with interop unlock

Known bugs (be sure to report 'em )
-Exiting the add app popup is hard
-Doesn't support light theme too well (not a lot I can do there, unless I branched it)
-Some people report COM issues; report if you have this problem. Also, try reinstalling it, that seems to help.

And you can download it at the bottom of this page: http://windowsphonehacker.com/folders

Cheers, let me know some feedback!
Muy buen porte, gracias

I love this, great work jaxbot!

However I also seem to have the "tile-problem"
Everything regarding the app works fine, its just the tiles that just dont seem to work.


Now this is a promising project however and I know its still in the early stage so ill keep my hope up for the next release.

This has also been reported in the comments on his web siteby several people. No update there or here. I have been using all versions of this app since it was first released and love it. So much easier to use the rooted version on the phone. If the live tile issue was fixed, it would be perfect for me.

Thanks to the dev!!!!!!!!!
