Bookmark Sort & Backup lets you rearrange the order of your internet bookmarks

In the Android Internet browser, you can sort your bookmarks by how often you use them, by their date and in classic alphabetical order. You can access this option by going to the browser’s Bookmarks screen, pressing the Menu button and selecting Sort by.

So far so good, but what if you want your bookmarks to always appear in the exact order of your choice? There is currently no built-in option for manually sorting your bookmarks, but luckily there’s a niche app called Bookmark Sort & Backup that adds this functionality. The app couldn’t be any easier to use.

When you launch Bookmark Sort & Backup, it lists all your bookmarks and shows two arrows at the bottom of the screen: one arrow points up and one points down. To change the position of a bookmark, simply tap on it in the list and use the arrow buttons to move it up or down. If you longpress a bookmark, you get the option to test, edit and delete it.

By pressing the Menu button, the app also lets you backup your bookmarks to the SD card, and you can naturally restore a previous backup as well. Bookmark Sort & Backup doesn’t have any bells and whistles, but what it does, it does very well.
