Review: SPB Shell 3D

If you haven’t gotten a chance to play around with SPB’s Shell 3D launcher, I highly recommend you do so immediately. I won’t go into too much detail, as our own Phil Esposito reviews the app in the video below, but I can tell you that this launcher is top-notch software. Obviously, a lot of work has gone into developing the UI of Shell 3D, and it shows. If I can find one complaint, it would be the lack of any type of landscape orientation. Even when I open my G2’s keyboard, the launcher remains in portrait mode. But I’m sure it will be added into future releases, so I’m not too upset about it. You can see a few screenshots above, but the video really says it all. Now, on with the review!

    I actually purchased it for the wopping $15 it costs. Figured it had a few widgets that were worth the money. Didn’t really notice at first that the long press on the home screen, or to move icons around in the smart folders didn’t really work(~70% of the time). Filed a bug report, never heard back. Wish I could get my money back.

    It may look cool but for $15 it shouldn’t have bugs like that and no support.

    I am a writer and would benefit by having Publisher included in this Microsoft Office 2010. Use Word 2010 and had to have the new version so my documents would open correctly.In fact, I thought it was, so I was sorely disappointed when I realized I now need to buy yet another Office 2010. Coming from Microsoft Office , it is taking time getting use to the new ways of doing the same thing I did in the older version.Stop nickel-and-diming customers.I have used it only one day; therefore I can’t tell how long it will take to adapt. Give people what we need and we’ll gladly purchase things in the future. In fact, we’ll more likely buy Office 2007 because you haven’t required payment for all these other things (like Publisher) Microsoft Office 2007 should have been included in the first place.
