Since the beginning of the iPhone, people have sought to categorize their applications. With Jailbreaking this has been possible thanks to the Categories application, but there were some limitations. Many found that the Categories application, however helpful it is, can be very time consuming to use. PogoPlank is the solution to this.
PogoPlank ($1.99 in CydiaStore) replaces the traditional iPhone “Pages of Icons” with a “Wheel of Categories”. Each category has a user defined name and list of applications contained within using the PPSettings app. Once all categories are configured, a user can then scroll through the wheel to the category they like, tap the folder and see a list of applications in that category which they can choose to launch.
One of the best features of PogoPlank is it’s completely themeable, both within itself as well as using winterboard wallpapers, icons, etc. With the PogoPlank themes, users can customize the theme to their liking all the way down to the opacity of each image. This makes it great if you have a background you want to be able to see while having your folders on top of it.
Another great quality of PogoPlank is it does not break the users ability to use other addons such as SBSettings and Stacks.
There are loads of new features coming out in the next few versions including right/left handed use, folder passwords, and a developer API, so keep an eye out for those!
