SPB Mobile Shell & SPB Weather | Symbian Apps

Posted May 12, 2010 by Chaos Inc. in Mobile Applications

Today I will feature 2 new and exciting Symbian apps that are not yet featured here at Nokia Symbian Themes aka Chaos Inc. These mobile applications should provide you with the extra customizations you always hoped to have on your S60 9.4 Symbian OS devices. These applications are developed by SPB Software group and are considered to be 2 of the most popular customization apps out there in the market.

The first application I will offer you today is called SPB Software Mobile Shell and the second is known as SPB Weather. Please remember that the SPB Mobile Shell software is still in beta, and though it has been tested, it is totally up to you whether you want to install it or not.

SPB Mobile Shell : SPB Mobile Shell for Symbian was actually first developed for Windows Mobile OS based handhelds and PDA where it was quite (and it still is ) popular among all Pocket PC users worldwide. From the feedback so far it seems that the Symbian OS version is equally as good as the Windows Mobile version with loads of 3D widgets in it. SPB Mobile Shell resembles with other Symbian OS applications like Handy Shell and the vHome Voyager Homescreen App in terms of the functionality it offers but it offers even more details. This beta application for S60 9.4 OS devices allows you to customize the home screen of your touchscreen smartphones down to the last amazing details through the use of lightweight yet useful custom widgets!

SPB Mobile Shell includes a whole bunch of widgets built in with it which makes this application your one step solution to anything related to the homescreen of your touchscreen smartphone. It includes widgets for showing your contacts with a photo in a beautiful 3D carousel slide-show on the homescreen of your smartphones. You can choose to replace or add other widgets in multiple such as a dedicated widget to update your Facebook or Twitter Status constantly on your homescreen. Other highlighted widgets include an Internet Search Widget, Wireless On/Off Button, Media Player, Appointment & Tasks Widget, Weather Forecasts & Updates Widget, Photo Call Logs Widget, Touch Supported File & Task Managers Widget, Personal Phone Profile, 3D Email & SMS Viewer, Any Phone Settings, Bookmarks, Picture Frames Widget, Smart Contact Search Engine Widget and many others. You can change Mobile Shell’s Skin as you want, edit any type of displayed icons and even change the way your menu reacts. You can even apply special effects on the displayed contacts slide-show carousel. It also comes with preset settings to make customizations easier for you!

SPB Weather: As the name suggests, SPB Weather is a Symbian application that deals with all things weather! If you are thinking this is one of those simple Java applications that simply fetches weather information for your relevant cities and displays it to you, then, you are mistaken! SPB Weather is actually one of the most powerful application for Symbian and it can do a lot more than fetching weather data for the capitals. With over 10,000 different cities from around the world, SPB Weather is your one step solution to weather forecasting and weather information management on your Symbian.

SPB Weather already comes pre-installed on devices such as the Nokia N97 and I can assure you that anyone who owns a Nokia N97 will agree to the fact that SPB Weather is truly amazing as a weather forecast application. It displays the updates on a 3 dimensional globe where you can view the updates which are constantly animated and drawn on the globe itself. This feature is almost the mini version of the regular weather updates that you see on international news channels like CNN or BBC. This application performs great on any touchscreen devices (mainly because of the bigger displays on touchscreens and the way it responds to the touch commands) and it includes a nice little S60 homescreen widget which can show the weather updates automatically on your S60 9.4 OS devices. The regular forecast updates (updated 4 times a day at least – custom settings can also be set) include humidity condition, wind speed, pressure etc which can be shown for the 5 upcoming days. The final result also includes a 3 day forecast of precipitation, cloud condition, temperature updates among many other details. You can simply browse through one city to the next with a simple nudge of the finger. If you are not satisfied by cities only or if your city is not listed then you can also get updates and weather forecast with a GPS fix or Postal Code.

    Why does my N8-00 keep shutting itself on and off all the time?

    • Tweezy

      That happens to me too, I’m confused what the reason why and it really annoying.
      While playing game, there’s no problem.. but when your browsing through your homepage, messages, etc. it hangs and restarts.

      I hope someone know how to fix or at least avoid it, like any application that helps to prevent the hang.
