SPB Shell 3D released for Symbian^3 smartphones like Nokia N8, E7 and C7

SPB Software keeps bringing its SPB Shell 3D UI software to new platforms. After Android, the company is going for folks with Symbian^3 smartphones such as the Nokia N8, C7 and E7. If you’ve been reading our previous articles on SPB Shell, you know it replaces the phone’s default homescreen with a 3D interface from where users can quickly access various phone functions, favorite contacts and apps, as well as run widgets. Android users seem to especially love what SPB Software has done, with SPB Shell Android downloads generating $750,000 for the company in just three weeks.

Like its Android counterpart, Symbian^3 version also costs $14.99, which may sound a lot… until you actually start using SPB Shell 3D. I pretty much love it and so does Huawei, which decided to ship its Vision smartphone with the application pre-loaded…

Finally, before I let you go, check out a short video, demoing SPB Shell 3D in action. Enjoy!

    Hey there!

    I’ve been using the 3d shell on N8 since August 31st and can say that its definitely a groovy piece of software. The price may not be for some however comparimg the experience against symbian anna, spb seems well worth every dollar. In a nut shell, spb shell 3d does womders for the overall user experience and also manages to throw in a healthy amount of bling at the same time (btw a little bling mever hurt nobody right?, except maybe the cpu at times…).
    I do have a couple of gripes reagrding the latest symbian version 1.1 which I hope gets addressed in an update at some stage cause that primo experience could be that much better…so here goes:
    1) spb’s sms widget looks trick from the outset but upon closer inspection falls short as it just forwards you to the old sms page which I don’t really use anymore due to ‘comversatiins’ being that much sweeter. Conclusion: I hope spb can fix this in one of two ways, forward to comversations after selecting which message I wamt to read or provide their own conversation style thread.
    2) Most times after coming out of an app, when I want to select the carousel view for faster swithing between pages theres an unsightly pause or jump where the phase transition fails to run smoothly, this interupts the flow a bit an reminds you that you’re running an app on top of the actual UI…or it kinda seems as though the N8 (which I am currently using) is not quite up to the task of running the shell like spb intemded (take your pick). Conclusion: It would be really good to see more optimization in version 1.2 if there ever is in the pipeline…

    Sorry for the novel…
    Have a good one!
