One of the applications that showed up high in the list of apps to be ported to 2.0 is categories. Well today i have good news. Bigboss released Categories 2.00b via Cydia. For the people who don’t know what Categories is, i’ll explain briefly.

Categories allows you to make separate folders in which you can drop your applications. For ex. If you wish that all your Games are no longer spread over your iPhone springboard then you could open up categories and create a new folder called games and drop all the games in that folder. This way you have less pages to scroll to and you have all likewise app’s grouped in 1 category.

To install fire up cydia and search for categories. Install it and enjoy your less filed springboard.

    it’s a great app still sluggish when launching apps though. I’ll wait till the new ones
    comes out.

    does this solve the springboard regeneration issue? if you put all the apps into categories, your phone wont die when respringing right

  6. Braden Says:

    That might be true. But BigBoss said it would be a very bad idea to put all of your apps into categories, because the springboard doesn’t like being “empty”. So it wouldn’t be advisable.

    I upgraded my iphone to 2.2.1 and forgot to unpack my categories before upgrading. When I went to jail break again, cydia, installer, camera and several other apps are gone. Is there a way to access these apps? Or am I screwed?

    I’m in the same boat as you… Any update on this?

    Maybe its too late to tell you.. here it goes..:

    Install BOSSPREFFS
    Enter BOSSPREFFS
    Go to the hide icons Button
    And there you will find all your apps.. just switch them all to ON.

    P.D: My englsh sucks.. I know.

    Note: If you put an ampersand in the name of the category (i.e. “News & Reference”), the category will not show up.

  12. Blue Says:

    Reinstall categories, go to it, and delete the folders, if the apps still don’t show up, maybe you have them “hidden” so if u use SBsettings, use that to make them visible.

    I installed Categories from Cydia. It says it completed, but when i could’nt find it anywhere after installing it.
