SPB Shell 3D Out of Beta and Available on the Android Market

Remember SPB Mobile Shell?  It’s now known as SPB Shell 3D and is available in the Android Market and at one heck of a steep $14.95 price tag.  We posted up our video walk-through of the beta of this software almost a month ago, so it’s not going to be new to any of our readers, but wanted you to know it’s there for the purchasing.  A couple of notes:  it’s not supported on tablets and also doesn’t allow live wallpapers for “performance” reasons.  So, a $14.95 price tag and can’t run one of the basic Android functions.  Anyone interested?  

Download Link ($14.95)

Here is our video again:

    cool home app. I way to much for the OG droid. cant wait to upgrade to the tunderbolt.

  • Lethalprophet

    Ok. so I’ll make this easy, pro/con style:

    PROs:
    Looks SWEET
    Runs smooth (non overclocked DX on Deodexed Gingerbread)

    CONs:
    $15
    Nothing new, functionally
    3d carousel for fave contacts advertised WITHIN THE APP appears to be missing
    can’t customize dock
    can’t customize placement of icons on screens (aside from the order they appear in)

    CONs (in my picky opinion):
    can’t make background image static
    can’t remove icon labels
    can’t change number of row/columns of icons on screen
    no 3d (really, in THIS app?!?!?) app drawer

    In short, if you’ve got $15 to spend on pure eye-candy, go for it. If you’re looking for something functional, stick with LauncherPro

    I rated it 2 stars in the market, mainly because of the price compared to the functionality

    PASS. The limitless customization of Android is a benefit, not something to cover up with an ugly skin (and pay $15 for none the less)

    This would be so much better if the widgets didn’t automaticly go to the top

  • Warren Peace

    It’s free in the wild

    SPB …. OH !!! they still around LOL

    Its like a app launcher with handcuffs, very primitive IMHO oooooh 3D, FAIL

  • Pcrowley59

    Downloaded on to a old Droid 1 that is only running WIFI, it’s working, really takes alot to run it tho. I used the APK below. Loaded fine, one warning came up then it left. Theres a lot to it but I don’t think I want it on my Tbolt. Apps worth about 2 or 3 dollars at the most………….Love my new Tbolt……

    Pass!!! Two problems.

    1. Price, worth $3 bucks top when compared to the competition. To tell you the truth I would not use it even if it was free.
    2. Reminds me of windows mobile. I use to have spb mobile on wm 6.5 and those phones needed a front end overhaul. But Android is light years ahead and has a great selection of replacements with premium versions costing a few bucks.

    This is not my cup of tea but that is what makes android great, you have choices.

    first

    i found this link to download the app., i did it and it works great, B-U-T you have to setup the panels to avoid updates from the own app. for example the PICTURE/TIME/WEATHER panels, take them off, because those panels force the application to connect throw the market and automaticaly will cut off the configuration with the phone. it means that the previous or stock launcher would come out. right now i’m using htc evo and it flies, love it (i’m a LP user)…. i used to have the droid2 but verizon forced $$$ me to switch (still having my droid2 just because i love it). i found the link in another website…. cheers!!!!!

      what is already accidently let the app communicate wit the market and now i can set it as my default. Is there something i can do?

      • Tehckotek

        Just don’t use the preload panels and make sure to instal it and set it up without network…. turn down the connections… then after finish it, turn everything back on

        • Bogdan Gechka

          thanks it worked i took out the panels and it works now. But i have one more question. Hows the battery life on this.

          • Tehckotek

            well.. battery is good, no complaints at all, for me it would be kind of the same. the difference between the droid2 and the evo “with the battery” is that the evo eats it all battery like just for breakfast

  • Slenderbiggq

    Would love to try it but nervous of new refund policy….I’ve tried multiple apps and did not like them and I am still waiting for my refund—-I doubt its coming but I mean $15.00 is to steep for a 15 minute window should one not like it….Furthermore I’ve seen too many reviews stating people haven’t gotten a refund. SMH number one lets go back to the 24 hour refund window and numbet two, lets bring this app down about 50% or at least offer a trial version.

  • Bogdan Gechka

    im rooted and i found a free apk but then i install it and it asks me to activate it and when i press activate it loads for a couple of seconds and then say device not supported. Can anyone help?

    • Anon

    • http://profiles.google.com/brendan.kelly94 Brendan Kelly

      oh and to get around the beta version press the search button when it says device not supported

  • http://profiles.google.com/brendan.kelly94 Brendan Kelly

    dude its so good do another video its almost worth 15 bucks

  • Larry

    lol there’s no need to be angry about bad pricing… this isn’t the xoom 3g/4g. Just don’t buy the damn app… we all use adw or LP anyway.. let it die.

    did they really expect people to buy there app for 15$ when every single other home screen app is free? it doesnt even look good.
