- Spb Mobile Shell

- System Requirements: Windows Mobile 5.0
- Get more info
Spb Mobile Shell, by Spb Software House won the Shareware Industry Award in the Best Application for PDA category. This product gives your mobile device some great features that it didn't come with. The interface is clean and efficient. You can easily take in all the information with a glance. I've searched for what I felt was the perfect smartphone application and for me this is it. Clean, concise information on what the company calls the Now screen.
If this was all that Spb Mobile Shell did it would be a valuable program, but it does so much more. To begin with you can totally customize the Now screen. You pick what other information you want and the program lays it out for you. Want a digital clock instead of an analog one? No problem. You can use the new adaptive skins that change when other things change. Slick. You can pick from a color theme and make changes without affecting your Today screen theme. Easy to see why it won and why it's a great solution for your mobile phone.
