    Categories for Applications?

    Advertisement



    I have OS 4.1 on my 7290. For years, before getting a BB I used Palm PDAs and a then a Treo. With Palm software I was able to put apps into different categories so that I could just display my programs for business or my most frequently used apps,etc. so that I wouldn't have to unneccesarilly scrol through icons I didn't needat the time. Is there any way to do this on my BB? Now I just hide the icons for the apps I don't use so frequently, but its just not the same.

    Jlesh, You are doing the only thing that the BB allows. BB devices are based on Java and not a folder based OS, such as the Palm and PocketPC based PDAs. There is not truly a folder based file structure.

    Hope this helps

    The only thing like that you can do on your BB, is to hide the unused icons on your home screen. This will help un-clutter your home screen, and not make you scroll through each and every one of your apps.

    Hi Gadget, welcome to pinstack. To hide the icons on the home screen press and hold the alt key, the press the trackwheel. A menu will pop up and it will say hide application, after you choose which applications you want to hide do that again and you will see show all, make sure it is unchecked.

    Thumbs up Re: Categories for Applications?

    U can also rearrange the ribbon. Just make it so that the icons u use the most are first and the ones you use the least are last. Even with that you don't have to, you can leave everything as is and jus scroll vertically. I bet you have only been scrolling horizontally? Plus, it depends on what theme you are using, there are alot of different themes out there. The Vodafone theme would be great for what you are trying to do.

    YOU JUST BLEW MY MIND.

    hehehehehe... thanks for the tips.

    I just got my 7290, used from a friend, so it came with ZERO instructions etc. Once I determine that it is worth the ungodly expense of the data plan (I am on Rogers) I will upgrade it to something better I suspect.

    I have been using forums etc to find ways to personalize it and understand what I can do with it.
