I want customizable Categories, do you?

Blog moved to a new web site
click here.

While using Synapse, I feel a little bit “confused” by all those categories on top.
Most of the times I only want 3-4 things: Applications, Documents, Media files, Internet History.
Maybe some of you wants only 2 categories: Applications (as Default) and All (without Applications).

So I think it’s time to make categories customizable.
I started writing a configuration, but before I go ahead, I need to know what you think about that.

So this is the mockup:

Synapse Customizable Categories Mockup

Customizable Categories Mockup

Basically you can:

  • Add or Remove categories
  • Edit (Rename) current category
  • Set current category to default category when you open Synapse
  • Set what you want in the current category
  • Move current category before or after other categories

Vote, and if you don’t like the settings UI, please tell me why in comments 🙂
