I just installed it (14.71MB) on my EVO and the UI is great and smooth but at the end of the day you may realize it's just another launcher ... I will bet that because it's not offered by Amazon and the Android Market only allows 15min returns, that the price will drop very soon .

I would love to try this launcher, but as many have already posted the price and the bloated RAM bother me. Also not sure if my Desire running 2.2 will run it...I seem to have a memory leak somewhere as my phone seems to fill up. Not sure if this launcher would work well or not.

Guys just want to jump in before this goes in the direction that I think it's going in (especially since the word 'apk' is getting thrown around). Discussing and distributing of warez (pirated applications) is not allowed within the forum. Like I have said in the past, whatever you do on your own time is none of my business. What you do in the forums is.

For those who bought it. I am curious about the Weather Widget. In the beta that I was using, the Weather couldn't find my town. How is the weather found now? Does it use GPS, 3g/4g or just type the name of your town, and hope it is in there database. Can you put in your zip code? I remember in the old days with SPB Mobile shell, that the weather for towns and cities were limited, and you had to by the Weather app separately to get you town.

But after seeing reviews of it working on the Thunderbolt I decided to give it another chance.
I'm happy to report that SPB works great on my Thunderbolt! I'm not sure why it didn't the first time but I'm now a happy camper!

I also checked it out but ended up refunding it 5 minutes later, it lacks features other launchers has (scrollable widgets, column/row adjustment, etc) and when I launched an app like Market or Poynt and close it the launcher won't open again and I end up having to pick my previous launcher.
There's too many people that say they can't launch it, read the Market feedback. Also look at SPB's other apps, $10 for apps that does the same or less than other apps on the Market that are $0.99-1.99.
I'd purchase it again if the price was cut down, $15 is too much and they'd get way more sales if it was $5-8.

[Everybody would want an android phone then]…
I email the developer(s) about some features, and options that would be nice to have. Their response was that they're working on making these features /options available asap. Plus, landscape mode is being look into.
PS. Watch this video of SPB shell 3D running on an EVO and a Tablet - really cool.

I entered to weather in manually when trying to do it using GPS it wasn't locating me in the right place so there is the option to enter your city.
Now I think it looks great has tons of potential but as it is now totally not worth the 15.00 bucks. There is no customization which sucks and not enough options that are available in other launchers. Hopefully after a few updates I'll get my 15 bucks worth! But very nice eye candy!
