SPB Mobile Shell provides a completely new user interface for your Symbian phone.

SPB Mobile Shell freshens up the rather old fashioned-looking Symbian front end, then adds new functionality on top of this. The application is essentially a new skin for your home screen, allowing you to add cool widgets in order to improve your productivity.

Not only does the new home screen applied by SPB Mobile Shell look great, it's also highly functional. You can add shortcuts with thumbnail images for up-to three of your most-called contacts. There are separate widgets for weather, wireless switches, appointments and tasks, phone profiles, and more.

SPB Mobile Shell also features a launcher that gives you access to recently-used apps and actions, as well as a task manager that lets you keep tabs on what's currently running on your device. The app is highly customizable, allowing you to tweak the layout of the homescreen, agenda view, and apply animated transitions.

The software makes for a very stylish and convenient app launcher, but SPB Mobile Shell doesn't make really deep changes to the Symbian interface. Once you get beyond the home screen, the Symbian interface remains pretty much untouched.

If you find the Symbian home screen a bit clunky, then SPB Mobile Shell makes for a stylish and more user-friendly alternative.
