DIY UI

All changes can be made on the hoof either by long-pressing on an app icon or tapping the “settings” button in the folder or widget title bar. Widgets, folders and individual items are simply dumped on the screen using the Android widget selector menu. It’s so simple it’s almost insulting.

It's easy to keep track of what's where

If you want something a little more expansive you can populate widgets of various sizes with your shortcuts and even make them scrollable which gives you a halfway house between the Cupertino and Mountain View idea of how things should look and work.

You can also intermix folder and widget content, so there’s nothing stopping you creating a folder called Work for all the contacts, bookmarks and apps you need to get through your daily grind.

To help the forgetful or chronically disorganised, FO can be set to chirrup in the notification bar every time a new apps is downloaded and ask if you want to assign the app to a label to keep things shipshape.

For anyone concerned about the chaos a crash could cause, don’t be. I’ve been using FO for months with Motoblur, Launcher Pro and HTC Sense and it’s never so much as wobbled let alone fallen over. It even survived an OTA update from Froyo to Gingerbread in one piece. ®
