    Which one is better. Please list pros and cons. I tried searching but there are really no good threads. +Rep for anyone who answers. Thanks so much. Also, does anyone have the download links to categories.

    I really don't know much about stacks, but when I had it you had to have it on the far right of your dock, is this correct? But I love categories, you can pick your own icon for it, it's very easy to edit and it cause almost no problems (in my case atleast) I would say categories just becasue I've used it and love it!

    Categories
    -more reliable
    -more than one
    -easy to edit apps in the category

    Stacks
    -opens faster
    -have to manually edit the txt file to change apps
    -only one stack

    i use categories, because i can't get stacks working on 1.1.4.

    p.s. why don't you try both of them

    The CATEGORY that you make opens fast, the actuall category.app takes time to open, prob 5-10 secs.

    I was wondering if one had more problems than the other, or if one tended to make you need to restore. Thanks though

    ity depends on number of apps - a category with 5 apps in it would load instantly (pretty much) but one with 30 apps takes more time 9I have both, so I'd know)

    and categories opens slower from a category than from the springboard

    thank you guys, + Rep for all. You've convinced me that categories is better. If some has a link to where i could download it that would be great, even more rep.
