Handy Shell | Nokia Application
Are you tired of the default Nokia standby menu screen? I mean everyone has it either turned on or off and nothing makes it special really and no matter how many applications you can actually show on the default menu screen makes no difference. But now with the introduction of Handy Shell 2 all that changes and changes drastically. With Handy Shell 2.0 installed on your smartphones you can ensure faster operations, efficient program customization and also make you Nokia N95 8gb or E71 stand out from the crowd ‘s stock version smartphones. The new version will also work with Nokia N97 and other 5th edition smartphones.
Handy Shell 2.0 works in a way your Macbook Pro or Lifebook with the Vista premium installed on them does for you or your Apple iPhone menu screen shows, it shows the updated status for all your everyday applications including e-mails unread, incoming calls or missed calls, the status of the bluetooth reception, the upcoming events on your calendars like your friend’s birthday or even your upcoming meetings and it also provides you with a quick shortcut menu link for further modifications. The level of on-screen modifications depends entirely on your phone’s installed application. As for example if you have Handy Weather installed or Nokia Maps 2 installed then the active standby menu will be able to show your latest location marks or your city’s current weather forecast.
Among the different type of plugins that are already equipped in this handy application called Handy Shell 2, the most interesting and useful seems to be the e-mail/SMS inbox feature and the application shortcut feature. Obviously we all know why mobile e-mail inbox status message is so important, we all have to follow up e-mails regularly nowadays but what does the application shortcut means? Application short cuts leave us with a few infinite possibilities. Depending on your cell phone’s capability it will integrate the standalone application’s data on the screen to show you the updates!! How cool is that? Pretty cool, I know! Lol. The default e-mail inbox option is simply superb and the bigger the mobile screen resolution of your phone the better it is cause then the screen remains clean and do not create any kind of unnecessary clutter.
With Handy Clock installed you will be able to show the big digital clock on the main active screen without the need of any kind of flash lite screensavers or wallpapers. However I do personally like Flash Lite applications but I am sure many of you still do not digest the whole technology yet. For them this is a dream all in one application. The Handy Weather integration also will let you show the next five day’s forecast right on the standby screen and they look really tacky and sophisticated when activated. You can call your contacts without ever going into the contacts menu and not only that, Handy Shell 2 will let you use its built in File Explorer for your memory card’s browsing pleasure.
