PointUI Home 2 released

Chances are if you've been using Windows Mobile for more than a week, you're ever searching for a better user interface. Options like SPB Mobile Shell and SBH's iLauncher are excellent but leave a small hole in your wallet. That left a pretty big door for PointUI to saunter through, and for the most part it impress us when we did a full review a year ago.

Now released is a beta version of PointUI Home 2. It's still free, though there will be a "Pro" version coming later with more features. There are cabs available for QVGA and WQVGA (320x240); VGA and WVGA (640x480); and a panel for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1. Get the whole lowdown from the PointUI Web site.

  • ...and it really is an impressive choice. I just wanted to note, I've been playing with it on my treo pro, and the qvga version works just fine on a 320x320 screen, it just moves those 4 bottom buttons to the side.
  • Just popped it onto my X1. Pretty cool, but it could use a little more customization. I'm looking forward to the Pro version. It's not a TF3D, but it does have some nice little sliding top to it. Over all it's very responsive and it turning out to be pretty finger friendly on my part.
  • im liking this software so far!
    i hope its stable because i think its gonna be my work horse if it can hold up
  • I have it in my Lg Ks'2O
