I think I love you. Since Folder Organizer came out, it's been almost a lonely "standard", but it doesn't run smooth on my phone. For a reason I can't understand, no developer has given time to Android folders, making them almost useless (I simply can't understand why).

So... I think I love you.

Is there a way to change the background of the pop-up?

I'd like this functionality as well. The default is nice enough, but some extra options regarding the pop-up would be a welcome addition.

This is really simple and nice. I've experimented with similar widgets but nothing really stuck. This one is likely to stay put for awhile. Thanks for the hard work. I look forward to future improvements.

awesome.

like to see:

+1 for pop up customization (i'd also like an "x" on the top right so i don't have to hit the back button each time)

Sorting options

It seems a little slow to load larger folders. I have a games folder with no more then 10 apps, but it's noticeably different loading that then a folder with 4 apps. So some little speed improvements could be helpful.

Lastly, the app changes the icons of some apps on its own. I have a photo folder. It contains "camcorder" and "camera", but for some reason the app shows them as having the same icon, when in the system their of course different.

That's all. Looks great, this is going to relieve me of the folder organizer memory night mare.

Also, is there a possibility (I don't know how this works on your end) but making a shortcut to a folder as well as this widget you already have? Or do only widgets get to be scrollable? I'd love something like this for my LP dock swipe ups.

I just installed it on my Nexus running CM 6.1.1. It's a great widget, very helpful. There're a few issues though:

1. Can we disable the text (for all sizes of icons) ?
2. If I use landscape mode, the text got cut in the middle

What do you customize? I thought it was pretty standard. Just text colors basically. Have you ever used folder organizer? That's customizable. Nonetheless, this app serves exactly what I need. Just sorting and pop up customization needed. Love it.

    Progress Update

    Hi

    just a quick update that I am still working on the new Version,
    or in other words I rebuild nearly everything to make SiMi Folder
    faster.
    The only problem is that with the next update you have to recreate
    all your folders :-( Sorry.

    I "hope" to have the new version available tomorrow evening.

    Sorry for the delay.

    Have fun

    I'm interested in trying this app but I'm curious about why it needs to look at my personal information: contacts, browser's history, and bookmarks?

    I'm not very comfortable with that. . .

    How can a contacts and bookmarks widget work without that?
