PogoPlank Updated – Does App Sorting, Very Nicely

PogoPlank springboard replacement

My new iPhone BFF and springboard replacement “ PogoPlank “ got an update yesterday, to Version 1.2-1.  The one significant improvement contained in this update is app sorting.  This is one of my three top wish list items for PogoPlank “ and I am very happy to say that it has been added and works very well.

The other items noted in the change log for this version are: added folder/list colors, and minor cleanups prepping for 2.0.

App sorting is the ability to easily sort the order that apps are shown in within categories, via the familiar sliders we use in many other iPhone apps when we hit an ‘Edit ‘ button.

You can also now easily delete any missing ‘blanks ‘ where an app was previously listed in a category but has since been uninstalled.

My first impression of app sorting is a very basic one “ love it.  I find it a very easy and comfortable way to quickly affect big changes to where I find things, and far, far less clumsy than messing with moving icons round on the iPhone itself or via iTunes. 

Here ‘s my Reference category before and after some very quick and easy re-arranging last night:

After

I ‘ve been using PogoPlank for nearly a month now, and finding I much prefer it to the normal springboard, and to any of the other springboard enhancements or add-ons I ‘ve seen.  This latest update has just reinforced for me how effin cool the app is.  Re-arranging every one of my categories last night was an absolute breeze.  I did it while watching basketball and in very few minutes.

PogoPlank have promised that Version 2.0 will add Spotlight support and smoother wheel action.  This is already a very good springboard replacement, but if the devs nail those two elements, it really will just be the dog ‘s bollocks. 🙂
