    Default SPB Shell 3D Launcher

    As seen on the homepage. $15 is crazy. But Im a chump and bought it anyway. AMAZING! This Launcher looks extremely good on the Atrix. Really Smooth UI and makes the phone seem like a different phone. Im sure with more updates from them, they will add more widgets and stuff to it. Since its new I can expect that. But man, the UI is so smooth that its worth the money. You guys should check it out.
    Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

    I have been going back and forth debating with myself if I should buy it or not. $15 is a little steep for a launcher but it looks really cool. I sent an email earlier to the developer telling him to lower the price and he would sell a ton more. But after your suggestion I my just have to go ahead and buy it.

    What Widgets are offered in the launcher?

    I really love the idea but i don't want to pay 15 then not like it. Also i would like to know how the battery life takes a hit here, terrigno can you update us in a few days of use?

    I'm really tempted to dive in, but i rather wait to see how it is right now.

    Are you able to use other Widgets like Pandora on the launcher? And can you change the icons on the bottom dock?

    I'm giving it a shot. I will play with it through the weekend before I give any thoughts to it.

    First Impression: WOW this is awesome.

    Widgets can be used in this. Just as easy as it would be normally.
    To get rid of home screen, just go to the carousel view i swipe it down.
    It feels like this can be something that can really be on a phone from a manufacture.


    More to come.

    If it ever gets a good FB or Twitter integration, I may consider. I love the weather page, and it does look nice. I am just to happy with rooted GB and gingerblur right now. Once that wears off (not sure that will happen soon) I will re visit. These devs made a great alternative to what is allready out there. Looks like a lot of eye candy! ~tempted

    I will keeping my eye on this thread mainly because I really liked the overall effect it gave. I have a feeling if there's not to much of a battery hit I'll be buying this.

    I like just being able to have the FB and Twitter widgets. I can put it on their own page and name that page or tile. There's alot with this app. The weather application has a very detailed report for the current weather, the day (listing morning, day, and night forcasts) and then the next 3 days all in one page.

    Straight awesomeness!

    The only thing that I'm not liking about it is how it locks the icons to a grid

    I'd be willing to buy it if someone could answer me one simple question.

    I have an HTC Thunderbolt. The Bolt comes with 7 different themes. I created one of my own and set it up the way I like.

    Can I use SPB Shell 3D on one of those scenes, just to play around with it. Then when I switch to another seen it'n not in use?

    I do not think so. You can use yoir background. But it should switch back to the basic scene for the unlock screen.

    Yeah my Battery is at 60% after 11hr 48min and the Launcher has only used 2% of my battery. I'm still customizing it to see what I like. I like how folders are set up. You see the first 4 app that are used the most and the rest open up below it.

    Apps are organized like iPhone still where it grid locks together and can have open spaces between them. Its annoying but its good to know the space you have for widgets and apps. But its easy to move apps around to move a widget or apps move automatically. Sadly, there isn't an option to resize widgets. Hopefully that gets put in an update.

    in that case i just might get it, 2% is nothing.

    does anyone know if it has a gmail/email widget? or if it will be getting one? im liking the launcherpro gmail widget right now and dont wanna leave it.

    I want to know if anyone has tried this on a TBolt? Their descriptions reads "HTC Thunderbolt users: there is a chance of black screen on app launch. If you still decide to give it a shot, please contact support in case of any problems."

    It happened with my Atrix too. It only last for the first 10 seconds and then never happens again.

    Email the dev. I was pissed at google putting restrictions on ASOP, but with this, I understand it may be the only way they survive.

    I've been using SPB shell since version 2 for winmo 6.5 and earlier, and paid $30 bucks, and a discount with every upgrade. I will be buying my Atrix very soon and the first app I'll buy is SPB Shell 3D.

    After looking it over I noticed that the weather and clock widgets used to be separate apps that I have also bought for my phones in the past, back in the days before app stores or even iphones. Now they are integrated into the new shell along with a very well put together contacts widget among other great stuff. It's like getting multiple items in one package. I'm gonna see if a life long (spb life that is) customer might get a break. Doubtful, but worth a shot.

    Hopefully they'll be adding SPB wallet to Android soon, another must-have app.
