  1. A Google user-avatar

    Its only lacking multiple contact pages so you can have contact categories. It would also be great to have the picture widgets to be in 16x9 format instead of square since no pics are square anyway these days. SPB I BEG OF YOU TO PLEASE implement the attributes you had with contacts widget the Windows version. Specifically where you could have many pics in a bin per contact. It was nice to change the pics from within the contact file bin of the contact widget or just have an album so to speak for contacts

  2. A Google user-avatar

    I just bought this app from the market and i would say it is worth the purchase, $15 dollars seems steep but with the many different alterations and the widgets with in this app it makes it all worth it. I am never changing from this, my phone looks so slick (Samsung Galaxy S 2)...people need to look at when apps were last updated...this is an abandoned project... Don't complain that you spent $$ on it and it don't work...been using this for 3 years still my fave

  3. LaShonn W-avatar

    I loved the app at first. It seems to organize everything nicely. But the thing I don't like is, I can't stop it from constantly running. It drains my battery WAY TOO FAST! There should be an option to stop it from running. So after only 5 days I'm removing the app :( There should be some place to contact the company for a refund after such a short time. UGH!

  4. Jason Agee-avatar

    Great job guy's... for 2012 that is! I spent $14.95 on this app over a year ago and no new features have been added. I spoke with a representative of the developer before buying and was assured that the cost was not only for the past work already done but was also an investment in the application for future updates! Well only a few bug releases have posted as updates but no new content for U.S. users has been created in over a year! Come on guys, you are better than this! I hope.

    Its not updated since 1yr. Even here we can't create folders that contains apps. So disgusting. .. Please update it with some new features like in "next launcher", "go launcher"... Otherwise it's a great launcher among others...but people wants new day by day... So if u want ratings...u have to update it time to time. .. Even if here we can't create folders that contains apps. What's man? What are you going to ur app!

    When I first got this Launcher, little less than a year ago, it was awesome. Their own widgets are still amazing, but it has barely received a few new features since then. We're talking changes like choosing to scroll from your apps drawer horizontally-vertically, and other small tweaks alike. It NEEDS to get new stuff... definitely more transitions, hubs, and a major UI polishing. Looked great on my Skyrocket, but now, with HD displays and all, it doesn't look bad, but it's clearly not designed for the mo

  7. Ryan Fosse-avatar

    Its not what I thought it was.. So amazing 2 years ago.. And saved up for it even. Now nothing has changed.. I even got next a year ago and it's progressed more in a month then spb has since released.. A refund would be amazing. And if you manage to update and make something new, I will buy it to try it.

  8. A Google user-avatar

    I used to love SPB Shell 3D on my Windows Mobile years ago, and the Android version is more fluid, smooth and beautiful! I had put off buying it, but I am glad I finally got it. There is no other Home app that comes close to its functionality and appeal, and TSF Shell lacks SPB's beauty. Even better on Samsung Galaxy Note II.

  9. Drake Madrigal-avatar

    I've stopped using this app simply because they suck at updating. Can't believe I wasted 15$ for this when now there are cheaper and FREE and way more better than this launcher. Just pathetic... Pretty much took our money now u don't wanna update. Screw u SPB.

  10. Jim Shoe-avatar

    Just installed the new update and Wow my battery started to burn within seconds after loading. Had to go back to the trusted TSF. Come on guys your product is good looking spend alittle time to improve it and get more apps and widgets. So only 2 stars this time

  11. A Google user-avatar

    Need to have it updated. It worked fine with my T-mobile Galaxy X2. now I have the Galaxy s5 and for some reason i cant put my any of my pics as wallpapers anymore. They aren't showing correctly at all. Please update this and maybe give this app a whole new makeover. Thanks!

  12. A Google user-avatar

    Honestly this looked great 3 years ago. It really has not changed since then. Save your money and get a customisable launcher, an HD widget tool and a crisp icon pack. You will end up with better functionality, much better transition effects and with a bit of work a stunning and unique Android device.

  13. A Google user-avatar

    This was great years ago. On my EVO3D this was the only launcher I used it was mind blowing, I've upgraded phones many times since and this launcher hasn't. I always try this on my new phones(HD res-screens) and it never looks as good as it did on my EVO3D! Network widget never works! (service bar widget is suppose to be dynamic and mimic status bar network icon not just 4 little stagnant lines . Never worked on any other phone other than my EVO3D) NO THEME SUPPORT!! Nova/apex Rule the roost !

  14. Rachel Robert Davies-avatar

    Rachel Robert Davies


    It's not great. I had it on my s2 and it was good. Won't even let me set a wallpaper. Just a black screen. Trying everything nothing works. Icons are horrible!! God, what a mistake. This launcher has just been left to rot. Think twice about this, there are so many 1* reviews for a reason.

  15. hatem mohamed-avatar

    When I purchased it everything was OK but now always on my lenovo vibe z2 pro some widgets don't work , anybody has a solution ? And in the end I am so sure that it doesn't work with lollipop only with KitKat

  16. Jo Jo-avatar

    Please fix. The calendar everyday task don't have widget so I can see what tasks I have for the whole week. This only has events widget. Also the birthdays widget is cut off. Fix it pretty please. It was great in my note 3 but people update...

  17. Atul Dande-avatar

    I bought it but I regret it now. You people have stopped paying attention to this app now. I agree with some comments here, nothing has ever changed in past three years, its the same forever. GO Launcher is catching up with same and more feature that too for free. Someone has to be really stupid to pay you even a penny now.

  18. Ryan Suttner-avatar

    All these comments I see begging for updates and things like widgets and themes just confuse me. Years later this is still my go-to home app. It does what I want it to without useless fluff. I would never use a music widget because I use the poweramp widget. Basically I love the way the app works and how it is laid out, and I can supplement it with additional apps to get what is in my opinion the best Android home experience. I don't need a bunch of changes/updates/features. Its the best home app.Period.

  19. Mary McCraven-avatar

    I first had this app on my PDA about 7 years ago, but never saw it for a Phone. When they brought it to the Android, I immediately purchased it because I already knew it's capabilities. I own a Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G. It's worth the money, not anymore. I even upgraded my phone to a Galaxy S5, don't you think you should upgrade the software. Sorry but I've gone to another launcher.

  20. A Google user-avatar

    Its the same launcher it was years ago. I've been waiting for them to roll out new features to stay ahead of the curve. Love the full size widgets, which is the only reason I've stuck with this laucher. But they have not evolved and have now fallen behind. There is no reason anyone should pay 15 bucks for this. Next launcher and tsf shell are better options and atleast the have developers that exist and put forth the effort. Very disappointed with the evolution if spd, or lack thereof.

  21. Nachiket Karve-avatar

    I just love this launcher. It's awesome. I'm using it on my phone and tablet and haven't had any issues at all. The flicker wallpaper widget is amazing, let's you change wallpaper with just a tap. Phases of moon widget is pretty cool. Overall, just love this launcher. Totally worth it!

  22. JessicaMarie Love-avatar

    JessicaMarie Love


    Would be more awesome with themes free, love the features though.. plz add themes. God bless. July 21,2014 it needs more updates tired of seeing the same thing can't do anything with this anymore had to uninstall. Plz update to a cooler launcher.

  23. macntoss woodard-avatar

    macntoss woodard


    The app is alright but I don't really like it, I just got it tried for 5 minutes. And u tell me I can't get a refund. WHAT. A rip off,,, I really would like my money back please. It's been 3 years no changes I want my money back bitches

  24. A Google user-avatar

    They don't update it or add new features to it. They have lost their vision, they don't listen to any feed back nor do they implement any request. The hamster was a live years ago but now its rotting in a cage and the developer (do we still call them that?) Charges us a premium to watch the decay.. Try any other shell and see what innovation really looks like.

  25. Rashad Glover-avatar

    No updates. WTF!!!!! I paid more money for this app than I have for any other app on my phone and Ipad. Can you at least give us an Iron Man looking interface or something? Iron Man / Metro look. Black and white X ray look. Please breath new life into this app.

  26. A Google user-avatar

    Flicker panel on this launcher has stop working. Any ideas why? Great launcher big improvement definitely worth getting it. takes some learning to get used to, once mastered you'll get a really great launcher to organize your life. Flickr picture part of app has stopped working. Please fix and yes it does need new updates haven't had one in over one year.

  27. A Google user-avatar

    I used this launcher in all the mobiles I had and was happy to finally have it for android.. But but but it is disappointing to see such a good launcher turn so blank faced… and I would say if it is for free I would still not install it now. Paid healthy amount for this numb dumb launcher.. Big n complete washout Update needed desperately… wake up SPB team..

  28. Chris Zehl-avatar

    It says this app is no longer supported. They took our money then dont support the product. This is a huge waist of money I don't think they will turn people away. Don't download big waste of 15 dollars. They don't even support it anymore.

  29. A Google user-avatar

    Totally abandoned app . I expected so much more development for 15 dollars. I've given up on the hope and loyalty I had for this after last meaningful update almost a year ago. Developer shouldn't be making minor improvements they should realize they are major improvements to be made. I don't even use this app anymore, just have it available to see if there's any updates and what if any. Never thought I'd say this but yes" I want a refund.

  30. A Google user-avatar

    This launcher is getting old!! I paid $15 expecting a frequently updated app, I'm just using my stock ICS launcher Now, your launcher got old and boring. Come on with the updates!!!!! Or give me a refund.

  31. Sentry Sage-avatar

    Went through months of a horrible smart phone experience and then I stopped using spb shell and my phone works like new again with live wallpaper. Spb shell crashes everytime you close an app and slowed everything down. It shouldn't be released to the public in its current form let alone the price. I remember being excited about this too. Too much energy on the media campaign and not enough on the shell development. Anyways good riddance to this shell and I'm happy to finally have my phone back.

  32. yendor 187-avatar

    It started off as a nice app but no real updates for the app for the price. Where other launcher are adding new options every other month. Wish i could get a refund! Hasn't been updated in years

  33. Gabriel Santiago-avatar

    Gabriel Santiago


    Getting old. Nothing really exciting since I bought it. If I knew there were not going to be any updates with new content I would've never paid the $15. It won't even support live wallpapers for crying out loud! Purchased Next Launcher. Definitely worth the money. Not this piece of crap.

  34. A Google user-avatar

    i liked it 3 years ago, when personalization wasnt available to early android devices. But with the advances that samsung has made to personalize each device, this application/launcher is far behind. Defintly not worth any money.

  35. Michael B-avatar

    Bought when it came out, but disappointed. Windows Mobile version was more impressive. No content updates in the last years. If you are interested in this launcher, try Yandex Shell, which is basically the same thing but free! Also it messed up my 2nd Gen Moto X (Android 4.4.4) - after a reboot the screen was frozen. Had to uninstall in safe mode.

  36. Zachary Seals-avatar

    U will love it. I've been using it for almost a year. And I haven't gotten sick of it.i just change things around and use live wall papers. My battery lasts throughout the whole day and then sum. So if you think this drains your battery your dead wrong

  37. A Google user-avatar

    Why fix something that's not broken. Latest release has the weather system all screwed up. I live in LA and its telling me I live in Washington ..wth!!! I gate this. I had to restore my phone just to get the old app back...so stupid.

  38. Michael Dixon-avatar

    Don't know what's up but every single time I restart my phone it asks me if I want to use this home screen or the default one that comes with the phone. Whatever update you did, it needs to be fixed. I love this app. But I'm getting irritated.

  39. Robert Gwynne-avatar

    Paid $16 for an app that hasn't had a decent update in a year, such a rip off. Every app can be improved but this has just stayed the same. Very lazy, money grabbing developers.

  40. Adam Matiaco-avatar

    Come on guys really? If wanna keep making $ you better make a real update cuz other launchers keep getting better & while yours is beautiful & has a lot of potential your to lazy to make the necessary improvements so don't be surprised that your sales will continue to plummet & for 1 regret spending that much $ if that's the best it's ever gonna get

    If he is alive then he is thick in the head. I have regretted paying for an app without any updates for the past three years. Nobody should bother to buy this app. Waste of money. Completely nonsense!

  42. A Google user-avatar

    need support for the galaxy note2's pen option. needs ability to export corkboard notes. Needs some kind of useful update. For the price I expected Way more innovative content... Not stagnant death of boredom.

  43. FEROZE MOHAMED-avatar

    For the price paid i would expect it to be bug free and doesn't lag. I am using on Note 2. Shifting from one screen to another is too slow. There should be a setting to choose transition time. Also sometimes home screen touch does not respond. I need to press home button again to access it. Hope they get solved. 4 stars from me.

  44. Ezwandy Maidin-avatar

    No changes ever since I bought it. I want a freaking refund. What a waste of my money! There are free launchers that works way better than this one. Don't bother getting it.

  45. A Google user-avatar

    If it ain't broke don't fix it! Why change the way the apps scroll to be like the way it comes. Being different is impressive. Who wants to show off an app that doesn't do much more than the original OS? I so hate this. $14.99 now feels wasted. 11/11/13- As of now I have abandoned this app. I've come to realize it is causing my phone to freeze. Perhaps when when they develop a quad core processor I'll come back.

  46. T Thompson-avatar

    80% of the time it fails to launch when I press the home key on my Galaxy Note 8 which runs Android 4.4. I guess I shouldn't be surprised as I bought this app 2-3 years ago and it's exactly the same despite the changes of Android, other apps, and Android devices. It seems to have been abandoned. I bought it, but I'm uninstalling it AGAIN. I don’t know why I keep trying to salvage this old app. 1 star because of how amazing it USED to be and 1 more star for being a decent app.. if it didn't constantly crash.

  47. A Google user-avatar

    Bought this launcher few years ago. I should get my money back. We end users ALWAYS look forward to New and exciting updates! Feels like I got scammed for the amount of money I paid. Absolutely no updates? ! Seriously? ! WAKE UP DEV TEAM - you don't start a great project and abandon maintenance and improvements just because you FEEL it's great enough FOR YOU!

    What I don't understand is everybody is complaining about the app is not getting to update an the developer don't is have the common since to even reply back to tell us anything all they did is took our money. They should of say that it wasn't going to never get no updates an people would of spent their hard earn money on the sorry app.

    This app was OK on my note 2 but have upgraded to a note 4 and it does not work at all. Can't get money back. It's been 2 1/2 hours instead of 2. Lol. Trash.

    overpriced for a launcher over a year old now. no updates. I feel ripped off for the price. if the company wasn't planning to develop for it, they could have said so. have moved onto NEXT launcher. it's my personal choice for now, I recommend it. I followed SPB software for years. it's sad not being able to recommend them anymore. :-(

    ... And thus I downloaded a while back, despite the steep cost. Enjoyed it, but on "Kit Kat," it is crashing now and then without any explanation. Update: More having to "retry." No update to the app or any help. Heard back that SPB "is an abandoned project that will no longer receive updates and not supported." Grr. Feel ripped off!!!

    I paid a tenner for a Your launcher.. And i think its very poor for what you get.. Can i ask why is this the most expensive launcher on the play store.. I uninstalled after a day. And went back to Nova launcher.. Please give me a refund...

  53. Ahmad Sa'eid-avatar

    Are the developer guys dead, or worse, brain-blocked? Even a blind-deaf-mute cannot afford to get all these negative comments and do NOTHING! Please update this app, or take it off the market! There should be a NO STAR option

  54. Hafith Ameir-avatar

    Of late it has been quite disturbingly misbehaving loading on every other minute on my Samsung Note8. A real wasting of my time and irritating. I come to a point of uninstalling it for good though I paid for it

  55. A Google user-avatar

    Are you the same developers or is it taken over by some one? Where are the updates??? I upgraded my phone to Z1 but you are still there with no update. Waste of money. SAD

  56. A Google user-avatar

    Bought this over 4 years ago. It looks the exact same every time I've put on different phones. It still freezes up. Wow. You guys are a rip off.

    It doesn't seem like there have been any updates for a while. Also I just realized that google search widget disappears after a system restart or if you force close spb shell.

  58. Gary Moore-avatar

    When I first installed SPB SHELL several years ago, it was by far the most cutting edge app I'd ever seen. Truly amazing. However, technology moves at break neck speed and what's hot today literally is past tense tomorrow. I rode with your product through two phones and sadly very little updates on your part. Thus, it's time to leave you behind SPB Shell, I'm jumping ship for Buzz Launcher, You've pretty much turned my pockets inside out with the cost of your product and with as many downloads of your product, you'd think that would be enough to jump start development or at least imagination on something new. Even a redesign....something? So if/until you convince me your product is one to watch, I'm sliding over to the other booth.

    Bought this 3 years ago and I haven't seen anything different. I usually un install it since I can do more on my phones settings. Come on people give us new content.

  60. A Google user-avatar

    Lovely looking launcher, but lags on a galaxy s4, can't move app drawer icon, , not as many options as it seems to have, no transition effects, hasn't been changed or updated in years. Lots of problems and a very high price for what is at the end of the day a problematic launcher.

  61. Nithin R-avatar

    It's been the same since I brought it an year ago, no changes n features added! It's like they just forgot abt this once they sold the app!

    This was cool two years ago, why would the devs not run with this launcher and take it to the next level? Because they are like Apple, and don't change anything thinking they can ride the wave forever. It doesn't work on the gn2, like wow. Does anyone speak Russian? Wish I cared that much. What does spb stand for anyhow? Still probably broken?

  63. A Google user-avatar

    Used to love this app. But after having no updates or any big advancements in home replacements, It's laggy & crashes often. Even the free home changing applications do more.

  64. jay rod-avatar

    Years out of date. No updates. Youd think they would add new features or something. Dont buy, honestly not worth it even if it were free.

  65. Jim Stewart-avatar

    Great app and very reliable. I have moved it from my Galaxy S2 to my new S4 and it works great. Would it be possible to put the Screen/Group name on the full screen as it appears on the rotating screen. This would make it more convenient to use.

  66. Corey Hensley-avatar

    First I love this launcher. I am disappointed that there have been no add on options for users or even a theme or two. There are other launchers out there with more options, more appealing visuals to add, and honestly were cheaper then this. Where are the devs and why have you not been doing anything to compete with these other launchers. Using default launcher and bored with it already.

  67. A Google user-avatar

    I had the windows version and it was brilliant. This version unfortunately is rubbish... The weather screen doesn't give my town, you can't resize the digital clock.... The list goes on..... In the past I brought a lot of software from this company (for windows mobile) and had never been diappointed, so this has come as a shock!!!

  68. A Google user-avatar

    Abandoned app. No updates. Gets boring super fast. Not worth the money. So many other launchers with updates and new suff being made these guys took our money and ran. 1 star cause its cool looking.

  69. Zillafan35-avatar

    I don't if anyone else is having an issue with their phones not rebooting after install the launcher. I am running Android 4.3 and I was wondering if there was something that I can do to remedy this issue. If I could use the Launcher then it would get more stars from me.

  70. A Google user-avatar

    Update: SPB was acquired by Yandex. They've created Yandex launcher which is an updated LESSER version of SPB Shell. Since this is my shell/launcher of choice not fully sure what I'm going to change to in the future. Don't get mad at SPB software since they really don't exist to update this. I wouldn't buy it now for that reason ONLY. But I am still using it as my launcher currently. Figured I'd keep everyone up to date so they can stopping yelling that it isn't getting updated. Now you know...

  71. Amilton Jr-avatar

    Almost no updates and when that occurs only "minor bug fixes"? Next Launcher 3D that I own too is really worth! GO DEV TEAM deliver almost weekly updates: many times full of new features! I have burned my money with this launcher : Shell SPB totally disrespect the customer!

  72. A Google user-avatar

    GUYS IT IS HIGH TIME THAT YOU COME UP WITH GOOD WIDGETS AND FUNCTIONALITY. WITH NEW ANDROID VERSIONS 3D IS NOT A BIG DEAL ANYMORE!! YOU HAVE MADE US HAPPY A LONG TIME AGO. Themes atleast like other launchers, more widgets?? Please overcome. I do not want to see a hollywood movie based on true events (on how once a best selling android app ended up painfully).

    I've been using this since I had Windows Mobile 6.5. I had 3rd party skins as well for it. This software was even available for Symbian. I know that a lot of people are complaining for the lack of updates, but this (had it on Android as well) was/is one of the best looking and snappy launchers available. Worth its money. I didn't experience bugs at that time, but is not unlikely for others to encounter issues with it (then or now), as with any other software. I am now using a different launcher though.

    Expensive, Bulky and no updates. Purchased 3 years back, nothing new after that. Have not been using it for couple of years now but remains installed so that I can check if any updates are available. Waste of money.

  75. Ali Abedi-avatar

    When I go into an app and come back out, the app has stopped working and I need to start it again. Not very good on a Samsung Galaxy s4. For £10, waste of money, want my money back!

  76. A Google user-avatar

    This is a very well made launcher, sadly let down by the lack of customisation potential. The flickr page is useless. Would not recommend in this form

  77. Daniel Marchesani-avatar

    Bought this app 4 phones ago, hasn't changed since day 1 . I'm tired of looking at the same settings. Too many other good launchers are out there and are constantly upgraded. I cannot imagine anyone seeing these reviews and still pay these people even a penny.

  78. Odin Al-Malki-avatar

    Update: this app is getting boring and boring. Come on SPB people even a free stupid app has updates from time to time. It is a great home replacement and so smooth but it's need some new staffs a big update and add some animation when closing folders and drawer.

  79. S Pashoja-avatar

    It doesn't work on HD screens. The icons/especialy widgets appear very distorted on LG G3. The Please fix.

  80. Tj Howard-avatar

    Still a nice application to the factory stock but like so many others I believe some updates are due. Flicker doesn't work on my sony Z2. I will change my rating when you update this application.

  81. Ivan Rosado-avatar

    The latest update broke sob 3d she'll. It won't load! Update: reinstalling it fix it. :) happy camper now...

  82. John Jenkins-avatar

    Had this app for three years now, nothing new in that time. Would like some new clocks as I'm bored with the ones on here. Paid a lot for app so please let's let us have something new or are you still on holiday enjoying all the cash you've made. Now uninstalled due to crashing all the time, thanks for nothing...

  83. Rosie Mann-avatar

    I'm having trouble uploading the page that says flicker. It keeps saying "loading failed"... I need help only that.. I love the app so far.

  84. dalton burton-avatar

    When I bought this I thought yea it was awesome! Now I been lookin at the same boring app with limited customization. Guess the developers made enough money to retire :(

  85. Christo De Lange-avatar

    Have more option and customization on my phone settings. Paid for this app and currently regretting it as it seems the users have been forgotten.

  86. A Google user-avatar

    Last update, the wallpaper got messed up, it only covers the top half of the screen rather than the whole thing. Don't know if that's supposed to happen. Also, anything knew? I used to love the fast rotation, but that cool stuff is out. Any other stuff you guys plan to do ? Give me a reason to not uninstall.

  87. Ashley Miranda-avatar

    I Paid for this app 4 years ago. There has been no content update. You would expect for a paid app to halve continual support. Google you need to protect your customers. Please read how many comments saying that we got ripped off. Google you are responsible for allowing this to happen. We should have our money back. Please can you investigate this further. Shame on you people for ripping us off. Free as are 1000x better than yall.

  88. David Gordon-avatar

    Yes, this theme hasn't changed in 3 years but it was light years ahead, and still is, of other launchers. I've tried them all and keep on going back to SPB. No need to improve on perfection.

    This app had lots of potential when I bought it a couple of years ago. Sadly, it looks like this promising shell isn't being updated anymore. What a pity!

    Is a great app but I paid for it and n nothing new had come out for it. I bought tsf shell and updates and new features come out for it constantly. And for the same price! !!! This app is amazing but it's getting old. Add widgets, features, something. .... anything! !!!!

  91. Claus Beeck-avatar

    Urgently need a big overhaul. My note2 looks pretty back in time with this launcher. No wonder with no updates. Dear Dev people actually paid money for this. Once it had potential. Now it is definitely not recommendable.

  92. David Hayes-avatar

    I paid $15.00 for this and it has let me down completely. First off they should tell you up front that it is not for tablets. So this review is going to be based on my Samsung Note 2. The reason it doesn't work for tablets is that you use your tablet in landscape mode most of the time and this does not work in that mode. Maby I missed something so I'll move on to the "why I don't like it" part. It's just a bunch of full Windows widgets put together. You can add blank pages but I can do all of this myself without paying the massive price they are asking for it. It took me longer than the 10 minutes Google allows you for a refund before I realized that this was not for me. I'll stick with the launcher I think is almost perfect and that is Next Launcher 3D. You pay the same price for this one but it is at least worth it. And it is updated frequently.

  93. Vincent Howard-avatar

    Runs great on my Galaxy Note 2 & 3. I also had a Galaxy tablet (and before that a myTouch 4g) and it ran amazingly fast. Well worth the money! I will never run out of screens. And after reading some of the low rating whining posts that others have posted, I challenge them to suggest a shell program that's better. I've tried them all (TSF, Go, etc). They can't hold a star rating to SPB. If you're bored with your phone/tablet's shell program, this is for you.... hands down!

  94. A Google user-avatar

    No updates and so old and boring now. I think we should consider same fate with any other app by this developer. So careful before you buy anything! No hope for a ship abandoned by its captain and crew!

  95. A Google user-avatar

    Not working for android 4.4. When I push the home button it will sometimes crash and go back to the stock launcher. Then I push home again and I get a notification saying that the app crashed and asks if I want to retry launch. 5 stars again when I can actually use it.

  96. A Google user-avatar

    You gotta be kidding me. Minor bug fixes? I haven't used this launcher in months because it has stopped in time... And I payed good money for this. Now, after 9 months you say "minor bug fixes"? You are really kidding us...

  97. mat amdis-avatar

    Can I have my money back please. The only software I naughty on android I completely regret Sadly like all spb software long on promise short on being any good for anything utter expensive crap.

  98. A Google user-avatar

    Dont buy this!!! This has been dead for years. Its old and not supported. Used to be great but very old and tired. Used to be ; Great and inovative when it was new but the developer stopped support. Today it's ordinary and not worth the cost. This app is tired and time to move on. Ill be weary of purchasing anything more from these people. A quick flash in the pan and completely abandoned product. No loyalty here. Sent email to them a couple weeks ago...not even the courtesy to reply...

  99. EcoBoostAudio-avatar

    15$ for this? Really I bought this thinking the designers were innovative and hip enough to out due the factory launchers and its been the exact SAMEEE FOR AGES :/ VERY disappointing even next launchers update more frequently and this use to beat them hands down like they were a joke. Needless to say super disappointed this once brag worthy app is just mediocre due to its lack of updates.

  100. Jason Rodgers-avatar

    On the note 4. It crashes all the time wish I could get my money back. What a waste. But was good on my note 2.
