You could do that or optimally you could have three tables:

Applications: AppID (primary key), Name(localised), Exec, Icon... etc

Categories: CatID (primary key), Name

ApplicationCategories: AppID, CatID with both fields forming a composite
primary key

A few simple joins will enable you to do everything simply and quickly
with minimal memory usage
