SPB Software updates Mobile Shell
SPB Software has updated their Windows Mobile user interface, Mobile Shell, and inches ever so slightly towards the anticipated release of Mobile Shell 5.0 (which seems to have gone missing).
The update, version 3.5.5 adds support for 320x480 resolution, fixes bugs related to the Task Widget and other routine performance fixes. If you've recently purchased Mobile Shell and are worried about the cost to upgrade, SPB offers free upgrades for all registered Mobile Shell 3.x users. Simply download the trial version and install it over your existing version.
Mobile Shell 3.5.5 is running $29.95 and is available over at the WMExperts.com App Store.

Don't you think it is such an ugly piece of software.No doubt It's functional but its design doesn't look impressive.
Well no, it's far from being ugly, and it runs very smoothly. My only complaint: it's useless.
Not to mention that SPB Mobile Shell is a memory hog.
Why are you guys bashing. Mobile Shell is more stable, uses less memory, or battery the HTC Sense. It's 100% better than the crap Samsung or LG put on there WM Phones. If you don't like the stock look you can theme it. Try to do that with Sense without having to flash a custom ROM. Plus for older devices that can't run WM 6.5 well this is great. It at least adds a finger friendly UI to add new life to those older devices.
