, which lets you categorize to your heart's content. These apps also arrange app icons alphabetically or by use or rating, and have a nicer and faster pop-up box than the folders option.
These have shortcuts under the "Other" option.
Hope this helps.
Or Folder organizer (paid or lite version) For select action choose "other" then scroll down to FolderOrganizer Folder link" And that will let you choose shortcuts for your games,apps etc.
