    I use the htc bookmark widget and have added more and more bookmarks but they are in the order that they were added. Is there any way to change it? I tried to change the sort order of the bookmarks in the browser but that doesn't seem to affect it. I would like it either to be manually or the order of how frequently used they are. Do I just have to delete them all and add them back in in the order that I want?

    I have futz with this for a little bit now and from what I can tell the answer is no.

    If you go into browser and press menu > go into bookmarks menu again and hit edit, there isn't much in here except the sort option. When you sort Alphabetical or Most used and remove and re-add the widget there is no change.

    you could use a program called Bookmark Manager (the free version works perfectly) to re-arrange the bookmarks in whichever order you desire.

    I searched Market for "Bookmark manager" and didn't find an app named that exactly, so which one of the others should I use? Thanks in advance.

    If someone could please clarify this "boomark manager" app confusion, that would be great. I could really use an app like that!

    The app I got is Bookmark Manager free by Impulse Apps although I just searched through the android market isn't pulling it up. I'm not really sure what happened.

    I have been using Bookmark Sort and Backup by happydroid. Free in the market. It lets you sort, and backup and restore. Really easy to use.
