    Love the idea. Just can't help feeling it looks a bit ugly in these screen shots though! Anyone tried it yet?

    I kind of like it. Its not pretty but it gets the job done. Heres what ive seen:

    You cant directly access the camera, but can get to your camera roll.
    Clears up a lot of memory - I have 10 MB more.
    Semi disables spotlight - the keyboard still comes up.
    Settings are very easy to use. Its just like categories. Add folders and name them.

    Im going to use it for today and see how I like it :).

    I assume you can switch it on and off? It doesn't kill SB all together or is a pain to uninstall?

    I finally caved last night and got Pogoplank. I don't like the default themes though so this is SimplyFolder combined with Suave theme. I like it! :)

    Very neat looking! Tell me though, since you have a 3G like me..Does it use up a lot of memory? Slow down your phone any? Are you experiencing any Freezes or anything like that?

    No freezing or lagging. Earlier cydia crashed from low memory but maybe it was a fluke because it hasn't happened since.

    Can I use any theme with this?
    I am currently using the Matte UI and Matte Nano combination with a custom arrangement using Springjump, blank icons, and Categories.
    I really like how this organizes apps.

    I THINK you can have the category folders inside the folders on screen. Your icons and dock and background will all change, but everything but the dock icons will be just a little smaller. Ill post a screenshot.

    Notice the winterboard icon:

    Yes. It doesn't go through Winterboard so it just kinda goes "on top" of whatever theme you have. But remember, your icons won't show, they'll be in folders.

    You may have meant this, but your theme icons will show in the folders.
