UI like the iPhone

With the new look, now the fins begins. Part of the difference between desktop and mobile as far as touch devices is that you really do not want to repeat the UI pattern of forcing the user to organize items by folders, directories, etc. That is why Android does nto have file manager application.

A better way is to have the user organize sdcard items by tagging and once tagged than make that information accessible via an Intent so other applications can use it. Thus, the photoTAG organizer code I come up with is getting reused as an Android Organizer Application.

It opens up so much better UI handling in that you can have suggested tag by filename, content, etc. I mean Android is a smart phone, right? So lets have it act like one, right?
