You know I've always wanted this autocategorization of programs on my PC, currently I have to do it manually (internet utilities, network utilities, desktop , clipboard ...etc.).
I was thinking that wouldn't it be cool if given an application name, i get the name of the category(ies) for that application. That way i could probably write a script to sort it automatically into those folders.
i guess you could do that by searching google for the app name or filehippo or something and get their categories. It would really make finding apps for a particular task a lot easier! It becomes especially difficult when one installs hundreds of apps for testing!
This "group by type" seems like the right feature, but it's not automatic as far as i can tell... but how can we port that to a flexible scheme, maybe even for FARR!
so is there a software catalog can it automatically deduce,search, find the appropriate categories? That would be the killer feature i need...
it's similar to the task based approach.
What do i want to do?
- the rename
- bulk rename utility
- Smart Sniffer
Currently I have to do this manually on the start menu and in my portable apps directory! and in my archive folder! sigh... such a pain... that's why i now have over a 1000 files still to catalog.
I have always wondered how do they File organization sites do it, and if there is an automated way it can be deployed on a desktop ...etc.
This primarily helps new users as well... as they know then what resources are available to them.
I know this seems very rambling, i guess i haven't been articulate enough! Maybe someone else can summarize this better?
