Categories 2.20


After working with the developer of backgrounder, I now have a version of categories that works with backgrounder that can provide zero load times for the folders. Ashikase has given me an API that an app can call into and keep itself in the background. I have added this as an option in the categories folder settings menu.

By default, the option is off. So you should turn it on for each folder you want this to work with. Once on, the folder will load normally after each reboot or respring. But after that, it will load instantly because it stays running. It does not use any CPU so it will not cause lag. However, it does use RAM (memory) so you do not want to have 20 folders all set to be resident in the background. I recommend no more than 1-4.

The update to both categories and backgrounder are being delivered in Cydia now.
