Spb Mobile Shell 2.0

I've been trying out a wonderful product for my HTC Advantage, Spb Software House's Mobile Shell 2.0. I'm pretty sure that this software will be of great interest to those of you struggling to be efficient while using Windows Mobile 6-based devices.

It appears to me that Microsoft really didn't learn much from how other smartphones and other intelligent handheld devices work while developing Windows Mobile 6. This software has the amazing capability of making the fastest handheld device appear slow and clunky through a rather inept user interface.

Spb Software House and a number of others took this as a challenge and created a shells that really improve the Windows Mobile 6 environment. I've been using the previous version of Spb's Mobile Shell and have liked it quite a bit.

The new version addresses each and every issue I had with the shell. It's now possible to use the shell's graphical interface most of the time. In the past, the system would return to Microsoft's inept shell after many functions completed. Now, the system returns to the shell screen that launched the function. One returns to the Microsoft shell only when the "X" icon is pressed.

I've already noticed an improvement in my otherwise miserable level of productivity. I suspect that you might see a boost in your productivity levels as well. A no-cost demo version of the product is available so, why not give it a try?
