TSF Shell Receives Major Update – Screen Editor, Icon Designer, Landscape Modes, and More Transition Effects


Finally. TSF Shell Pro, one of the most expensive apps in the Google Play store, received the update that all of us early adopters have been waiting for. With version 1.4.0, you can edit screens (meaning add more or adjust the order), create your own icons, switch between landscape and portrait, and set new 3D app transitions.

When this app was first released, it came off as one of the more robust we had ever seen. Unfortunately, it was missing some of the simple things, like edit screen order. With that now fixed and what appears to be a ton of themes for it in the market, I think it’s time I give it a second shot. After all, I do feel almost invested in the damn thing. Oh, and yes, these new updates do seem a little SPB Shell kang-ish.

So see all of the new stuff in action, the TSF Shell team has put together another of their pro tutorial videos. We have it below.

Cheers Picolas!

    Pay $16 to drain my struggling GNex battery even faster for “cool” transitions and no real boost in productivity?  No Thanks.

  • ManiDePRico

    Has anyone tried this on a tablet. I have the Xoom and wonder how this all works out on it.

  • jroc74

    One thing you cant deny….after waiting for TAT Home….and demos I saw of some mythical, vapor ware HTC or QUalcomm UI on Youtube…

    This and SPB Shell is some serious innovation. 

  • dodger55fan

    SPB Shell still much better – the “pages” are what keeps me hooked, even though at times it can seem almost unbearable waiting for it to load after i’m coming from another app

    Too busy…

  • John Burke

    Damn, might have to finally spend the 16$ on this one now …

  • Sven Enterlein

    I will only look into this when it is on sale. I was really excited for a long time but the price tag is almost offensive.

  • kwubba

    I’m really happy with APEX’s price & functionality. $17 is just way too much!

    • John Burke

      APEX is fine for free, but if you want a clean simple one, Nova Prime is awersome

  • Mack

    It’s cool, just not worth that price imo. 

  • Scott Willenborg

    I think I’ll download it…

    … when it’s the free app of the day at Amazon.

    Speaking of things that slow your phone way down

  • I certainly appreciate the effort that went into this, but at almost $17 it’s way too pricey for a simple homescreen/launcher replacement.

  • Droidzilla

    $16+ for a homescreen replacement? I think I’ll stick with GO Launcher and blow all my cash on 5 Guys Burgers and Fries.

    • Guest

      Blow 5 guys 😮

      • Droidzilla

        Whatever you want to spend your money on, dude. I’m not here to judge.

      Jalepeno Burger and fries w/ viniger ftw.

    • Lacokanostra

      Blow my money on in n out and buy a 6pack. 5 guys over priced overhyped

      • Droidzilla

        In ‘n Out is cheaper because their burgers are so tiny. I moved from a place with In ‘n Out and no 5 Guys to a place with no In ‘n Out and a 5 Guys and I couldn’t be happier (when it comes to burger joints, that is). 5 Guys isn’t twice the price, but they’re definitely twice the burger.

        Wait, were we talking about phones?

      • PanicsWhenUbered

        “Blow” your money on In N Out is right. Make a smart investment in a Five Guys Burger with Cajun spiced fries. Five Guys pwns In N Out any day.

        • Noyfb

          west coast= in n out, mid west= steak and shake east coast= ?

          • r0lct

            East Coast = Notorious BIG?

  • superchachi

    Whoa. I’ve purchased TSF shell, stopped using it and now it says it’s “incompatible” with my GNex. 

    • shoeshine

      Did you change your screen density?  That will mess up the market sometimes.

      • superchachi

         I do recall purchasing TSF when I was on CM9 and now I’m back to BB. Do they each handle screen density differently?

  • I dished out the 15 for SPB and I don’t think I’ll ever do it again. The stock ICS launcher is way more enjoyable than SPB haha

    • John Burke

      Try Nova Prime

      • I do use Nova sometimes, is Prime worth it?

        • T4rd

           I don’t think so.  I switched to Apex and got some added functionality over Nova while still having the same look/feel as Nova and stock launcher.

        • r0lct

          If you’re happy with Nova I would check out prime, it’s worth it if that’s what you are going to use over the life of your phone.
