GPE-APPMGR is the main window of the PDA. It allows to start-up applications and offers a kind of start-menu. Any application that a user should be able to access should also be available through the application manager. Every application has to provide a name and an icon to be displayed. Applications are sorted into different categories so that finding them is easier. This is done by using 'tabs', much like those in dialog boxes in many GUIs. GPE-Appmgr uses freedesktop.org-style desktop files like known from Gnome and KDE. It is able to deal with single- and multi instance applications as well as different screen sizes. The screenshot shows it in a mode used for devices with screens of 640x480 pixels and above.
