    The first initial setup on most applications sometimes shows that. Battery life won't be any Better or Worst using this launcher. The percentage shown will soon be gone.

    So..if you wanna see fast-boot implemented in an upcoming update. You know what to do, drop spb shell an Email -

    [SPB Shell 3D is totally cool]
    I don't have this particular issue but I did take your advice & emailed the Dev asking to consider adding the option to hide icon labels in a future update if possible. Coming from LPP, I really liked this idea & made for a cleaner look to my screens. It's nothing really functional, just an aesthetic improvement.

    Don't you agree on seeing an update right about now. I don't know about you, but I'm hoping any day now to open market - menu - my apps and seeing an update for Spb Shell 3D.

    Have you done your part lately by Emailing the developer letting ' em know that it's time for these problems you're having to be addressed. If not! What the HECK you're waiting for. Complaints / Concerns / Comments are better heard via Email then posted in comments on their feedback page.

    Hello

    Hoping for some words of wisdom maybe...I've been running SPB for a couple of weeks now and I absolutely love it. Its so much faster than both Launcher Pro and Go Launcher on my Galaxy S - and hey - I am a total sucker for eye candy so its win win. I have managed to customise it a bit by using Folder Organiser shortcuts and Desktop Visualiser and its SO PRETTY I am LOATHE to swap back to either of the abovementioned - but all of a sudden I am having some odd issues.

    First up the Message Widget - when I tap the photos to get the animation - it either re-opens an application I was using earlier (which I checked was not still running in the background) or the screen blacks out and sometimes it reloads - other times not.

    The Birthday Widget is similar but this one blacks out the screen 100% of the time when I touch the photos. The animation has just plain stopped working. Even when I have the screen idle and its doing its pretty carousel thing - as soon as it spins to the panel that contains either of these widgets it just dies. So confused! All the other widgets work fine (weather graph, travel, contacts) - its just these two "rolodexy" ones that have screwed up.

    Have tried replacing the widgets numerous times - and have un-installed and re-installed but to no avail. Im not keen to un-install a third time because it takes me AGES to rebuild my homescreens with no backup facility.

    I've emailed SPB- but I don't know how long it will be till I get an answer so I thought I would try you clever people in the meantime I did try and read alll the pages to see if it was mentioned but I ran out of time (I have a 3 year old so my forum reading time is limited )

    I have a rooted Galaxy S running Gingerbread XXJVS if that helps...??

    Thoughts??

    Hopefully the new version of Spb shell 3D might fixed those problems you're having. (Version 1.2.4)

    For those who didn't know - A new version of Spb Shell 3D (1.2.4) is available in the Android Market. Customers are asked to update to this version - and report back on its performance. The developer(s) of Spb Shell would love to here your feedback.

    If you're having problems with the newest version of Spb shell 3d after updating, then you should uninstall and reinstall the application. installing, then

    Unfortunately the update hasn't fixed anything but the support people have been great and have now sent me a log collector to install so I've sent some off for them to look at. Fingers crossed they can fix it because I do love it..

    They had sent me the same thing before, but the same problems still persists. Currently, I'm forced to use HTC sense - because of the long loading time it take Spb shell 3D to load. Sense 3.0 on my now Evo 3D is super cool, so... I'll be using Htc Sense until Spb shell improve on the long load time on their launcher.

    Spb Shell 3D is an eye candy - and so is HTC Sense 3.0. I love both.

    Yeah. I've gone back to Launcher Pro for the time being. I started getting crashes with the Shell. I'm sure they will work the bugs out though.

    Hey Guys.. Have there been any recent update to Spb Shell 3D?, I wouldn't know because since I've been using my Evo 3d with Sense 3.0 _ I really don't need to use shell no more. The last update rarely did any justice for all the complaints that was left on Spb shell feedback page. After having too many restarting and sluggishness...I was forced to upgrade to a device which has HTC latest Sense UI. I do hope the developer(s) of Spb shell 3d are aware of these issues and are in progress of addressing these ongoing problems for their loyal customers.

    I had to chase them for an update on the crash logs I sent them because no one got back to me... and the told me I wasn't using the latest version (even though I was using the link they sent me) so now we are going through the whole process again. I've sent some more logs and will chase them again in a week but I think it's a lost cause. My sister is using it on her Motorola and it works flawlessly.

    For me it runs like a star but there are just those two animations that make it wig out. I wish I knew whyyyyyyyy!!

    Rushrl, Shell 3D is still running flawlessly on my Atrix 4G. Last update was in Oct.

    Curious though, are you saying Sense 3.0 has all the bells and whistles of Shell 3D?

    Maybe not so much of an " eye candy," but it works really great on my EVO 3d.

    Anyway... for all those who are still sporting Spb shell 3d launcher - there is a new update available on the market.

    Version 1.5 (Dec 8, 2011):
    (1) News panel
    (2) Notes panel
    (3) Calculator panel
    (4) Moon calendar panel
    (5) Favorite contacts pane
    (6) Improved "Manage Panels" screen
    (7)Better voice search integration (new permission required) Stability improvements
    (8)Other improvements and bug fixes.


    So...there you have it guys. Is it an awesome update or what. Remember to report back on how this update works for you.

    Runs fine on my Samsung Skyrocket, but my clock widget (tried Beautiful Widgets, Fancy Widgets, and HD Widgets) and battery widget (Battery Solo Widget) do not always update right away, when I turn on the phone. Often, they do not update for 30 seconds to a minute or two (or longer).

    Is there a fix for this?

    They told me all my issues were due to low memory and that I should remove some widgets. I have my Galaxy Nexus now so just waiting for them to update and see how it runs...

    Hello there. Im a new user of SPB shell 3d. I have a few questions. I did read ALL 27 pages before posting but found no answers. I also read the user manual from there site which was pretty much useless. First of all I have a Motorola Photon on Sprint. I cannot seem to find a way to switch the Weather app settings. Its curently showing temp in celcius which I dont have a clue about. I think I read someplace on the net that there is a settings icon or something but I cant find one anyplace. Also to switch between the stock launcher and SPB. I did the settings-applications-manage applications-spb where it says to select clear defaults. I see where it says clear defaults but its not highlighted and therefore not clikable. I downloaded home switcher from the market and I can go back to the stock launcher that way but as soon as I hit the home hardware button it loads spb rite up. Its so annoying. Can anyone help.

    Hey... Have you tried to hitting the Home Settings tab? On my Galaxy S you could get there by hitting the same menu button (bottom left hard button) that gives you the add, manage apps, wallpaper etc). Home settings will give you a list.. Appearance, Widgets, Weather etc. Choose weather and you can amend your settings here. As for switching between the two, whichever one you have set as default on HomeSwitcher will default..

    Hope this can help!

    Hey guys...Are you tired of waiting for SPB Shell 3D to load. Do you get frustrated on how long it takes just to load...then do what I did -- Let the developer(s) of Spb shell 3d knows that you would love to have "fast boot" implemented in an upcoming update. It's better to send them an Email than to leave a feedback on the Android market.

    Anyone who uses the launcher (spb shell 3d), cannot deny that the loading time on this launcher is WAY too slow. Spb shell told me that they are looking into making the launcher loading / boot-up time a lot faster. Well, that's what they say - so, I'm just waiting to see. Looking back at Spb shell update records - they're much better than most application on the market in pushing updates for their applications. So... there's REALLY no reason not to believe them.

    So..if you wanna see fast-boot implemented in an upcoming update. You know what to do, drop spb shell an Email - letting them know how much this feature means to you -- and it would definitely be a Big Plus to Spb shell 3D.

    [SPB Shell 3D is totally cool]
    The upgrade to ICS fixed all the old issues I was having on my Galaxy S. I'm as happy as the proverbial pig... apart from the loading time of course. Well done SPB. Just need a facebook widget now :-)

    Just realised on my Galaxy Nexus (which has the upgraded version) you need to choose "Panels" after Home Settings.

    Let us know how you go...

    Hey, folks...

    If you are still using SPB Shell 3D (like me) and refuse to stop, because you paid $15 bucks for it - then we might be in for a new update sometime soon. Once again, I've written to the developers about the long loading time, and also about the possibility of a Facebook and Twitter widgets. There response was the below.



    Hopefully, we will see this update way before we get ICS. I'll keep this thread up-to-date as usual. Your feedback is appreciated.

    For those who aren't familiar with the launcher SPB Shell 3D, please see the OP at the beginning of this thread. Thanks.

    A-hem*

    I'm beginning to wonder if the developer(s) of this launcher (sbp shell 3d) has decided to forsake their supporters. Hmm! There have been a long silence on their end. Not good at all.

    I've been sending an email a day to the Dev, and will continue doing so until an update is push out for this application/launcher. I'm wondering if our feedback and/or emails are going on deaf ear.

    For an application costing this much ($15), you would think that updates would be more frequent. I've seen applications that are free.. get updates on a regular basis -- so why should this one be any different.

    I guess as the saying goes, "If you want something, you got to ask for it." I would appreciate if all who have purchased this launcher, would take the time to send an email to SPB Shell letting them know how disappointed you are with the lack of support for their customers. Volume is a powerful thing... and with every email sent it shows that we (their customers) demand better results from them. Smh!

    Here is their email address... shell3d@spb.com

    LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
