    Work-Life Balance with Spb Mobile Shell 3.0: World's Bestselling App

    Advertisement



    Spb Software, a leading maker of mobile software, releases Spb Mobile Shell 3.0, the next-generation user interface for Windows phones. According to Handango Yardstick, Spb Mobile Shell was the world's number one bestselling application of 2008 among all mobile platforms.

    Spb Mobile Shell 3.0 accounts for two different smartphone use scenarios: at work and at play. The application offers distinctive 'professional' and 'lifestyle' desktops, integration of picture contacts with Facebook, account-sensitive email indicators, handsome time and weather screens, widgets, responsive kinetic scrolling, signature 3D animation engine, and other appealing assets that change the way a Windows phone is used altogether.

    Previous versions of Spb Mobile Shell were shipped by a number of innovative phone makers, such as Acer, O2, Pharos, Sony Ericsson, and Toshiba, have won numerous awards, and have been the choice of millions of customers. "It was challenging to design 3.0, as customer expectations are quite high," - comments Yaroslav Goncharov the Spb Mobile Shell Product Manager and CTO at Spb Software - "On the other hand, this level of success gave us confidence in our basic ideas and design philosophy, and we certainly feel that Spb Mobile Shell 3.0 has all it takes to be the strong foundation for a host of new and immensely popular Windows phones."

    I have the shell2 and was waiting for 3's release. Thanks for the info. Will certainly upgrade, although as an early bird buyer of 2, I don't qualify for free upgrade.

    Works great on devices having 'accelerator'; otherwise almost like shell2 (previous version of shell3) on older devices with some face uplift and interface name change from professional and classic to lifestyle and professional. Also, devices with accelerator have their own custom interfaces (HTC 3D Touch Flo or Xperia 'windows' for instance). Interested users must try it though, before it is 'probably overshadowed' by the upcoming winmo 6.5
    Note: tested it on HTC Touch, HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro, Samsung Black Jack, Samsung Omnia, HTC TYTN II and Xperia
