    Regina Launcher. While we are all waiting for SBP to implement additional options, I thought I share this little info. I saw the "Regina Launcher" in the Market and it's worth taking a look at. Its 3D and quite awesome. Search "Regina" in the market
    https://market.android.com/search?q=REGINA&so=1&c=apps
    Nice app - but obviously not in par with SPB shell 3d. I'm sticking to shell until something better comes along.


    Hmmmm. Yeah, I get the bit about only showing events for the week, but I have events coming up this Saturday that are not showing up.
    I'm now convinced that it doesn't work like that... The birthday widget alerts you on the day of a birthday which is preset in the calendar app. Any event(s) that is set in your calendar app will give an alert, or notification on that set date.

    Thanks Z for that info and linking your set up. I would show you all mine but I was just instructed to accept forum rules and regs and am not sure if I can.

    At any rate, I like the suggestions I'm reading. Hope they get implemented in the future. I'm testing another 3D app and will start convo on it in a minute.
    Everyone will have to accept the guidlines they were just updated so it makes everyone re read them for the changes and to keep them on par with the policies put in place.

    no reason you shouldnt be able to share some screenshots

    The Regina launcher actually isnt that bad. Its an actual 3D Launhcer with nice graphics like SPB, but SPB is smoother. I just couldnt keep Regina because I have an issue with having a launcher on my phone..........called.............Regina lol

    Interesting name for Launcher I must admit. But there are lots of things they could ve name it including "Regie" LOL
    SBP need to update ASAP, the 3D shine is getting old time for functionalities.

    I bought this a couple of days ago. So far I really like it.

    I would like to see Scrollable widgets and for it to let you place items anywhere you want them.

    I have one concern:

    The weather app is set to update every hour. And it shows that it does. However the weather is not being updated. If I update manually it works.

    Are there others having this problem or maybe a fix?

    The weather widget is not reliable. Its 8 degrees higher than the actual weather temp. in New York and maybe other locations

    Yes the weather widget is odd. It uses the correct reporting station for my area and when it updates it's correct. However it doesn't show my city, but a smaller one right next to it.

    The reporting station updates every hour and if I let the weather app update on it's own it will always be an hour behind the reporting station. Going to try 30 min updates and see what that does.

    Weather updates seem to suck on any launcher I used. These launcher apps rely on different source who collect data (information) - and update the weather at their discretion.

    Ps. In settings make sure that you have update /sync checked.

    I have noticed that the weather source (reporting station) it uses only updates every hour. It shows this time on the weather app. I also get a text every hour from the same reporting station. What I have found is the weather app is about an hour behind. Even with that, it's providing pretty good accuracy. It's working as good as any other weather app I have.

    The only thing they could fix is to show my city. Which would still use the same reporting station. But they show a city that is farther away from reporting station and a lot smaller. That is a little hard to understand.

    Now if they would just provide scrollable widgets and would be very happy.

    I uninstall SPB Shell 3D and went back to HTC sense, use sense for like two minutes - uninstall and went right back to SPB Shell 3D.

    The thing is... even though SPB might not have scrollable Widgets, and a few other features/options - to me this app have more to offer than Sense. I wouldn't have notice this if I'd never had installed SPB Shell.

    I found ways of getting around doing stuff. I can placed any app where I want it. I also love the fact that even if the panel is full - you can still add app(s), or Widget(s) to it. It pushes the extra application(s) to the bottom of the screen.

    I also love the two different colors you get when disposing of an app. A red color mean the app has been successfully dispose of. A blue color signifies that the app has been placed at the bottom of the panel, and can be placed on any panel you choose.

    I'll return to HTC sense when Gingerbread update arrives - for now I'm enjoying every moment of this app.

    Damn skippy...

    My only concern about SPB is •>> When are we going to see some "awesome" update(s) to an expensive application like this.

    I wonder if SPB is aware that Androiders doesn't take crap from any app developer(s), when it comes to any app(s) that aren't free.

    Users (Us, We, you and I, Androiheads) should be paid $15 to Beta test apps, not the other way round. Honestly, I'm not expecting a update anytime soon. The only way we can see update is to pressure on them to come up with something soon, their original goal and could still remain is to be purchased by Google, HTC, Moto etc. They should receive at least 50 emails from us everyday. Better yet, they should create user forum.

    Yep, they say that they're overwhelmed by messages/emails. What did they expect. As for updates, I was told this morning - that they are working on making SPB Shell 3D awesome for everyone. Updates are inevitable.

    Nope... paid my money.. and got what I paid for. Maybe this only applies to customers now purchasing the app.

    You, me, and about everyone else. I'm optimistic that we will be getting some awesome updates some time •>> "IN THE COMING MONTHS"



    This morning I was shocked to see a notification on my (calendar panel), showing an appointment I have coming up on the 26th of this month. I guess calendar notification(s) do work. Now.. if only the birthday widget would. Or.. maybe you'd have to set the date for it to work - duh! Silly me.

    SPB Shell 3D seem like more fun than HTC Sense(froyo).

    •• Important Messsge ••
    I was asked to mentioned this to customers/users.




    Users can NOW try SPB Shell 3D for more than 15 mins if they got it from SPB website or from Handango.com.

    Customers can ask for a refund even after couple of hours. With the refund request they should provide SPB with their Handango.com Order ID.

    Also, one of the many issues that will be solved in the coming update (soon) is the Thunderbolt issue. (Cool eh?)

    So, to all those who believe 15mins isn't long enough to test (some applications), can now rest assure that you now have more than enough time to purchase and test out the app far more than the Android market (ridiculously) 15mims time limit.

    Ps. Go check it out now... SPB Shell 3D launcher is totally awesome. I believe 15 dollars is a reasonable price... for such a cool applications.
