ShellSwitcher is a small and easy to use Windows Mobile system utility for switching between well known shells:
SPB Mobile Shell, Titanium, Touch Flo, Touch Flo 3D, HTC Sense, PointUI Home 2, Androkkid,
WisBar Advance Desktop, Throttle Launcher and classic Today screen.
Program gives the ability to select the native or custom WM plug-ins and activate them on the today screen.

When you start program for the first time, it generates shortcuts for currently installed shells.
Now you can switch just one click.

Current version 1.0.5
OS: Windows Mobile 6.x

Program download page: shellswitcher105.cab (16.38K)

About application, release history...

ShellSwitcher detects Shells and installed standard WM plug-ins on fly
and shows them on its main window. After that you can switch to the selected
shell or to the MS Today screen with plug-ins which you want to see.
Also you can switch back to the particular Shell.
It is real system utility and does not dependent on WM localization.

Please, provide your feedback. It will be very helpful for me.

I guess this is also only working for WWE ROM's right?

See my sample from the WM6.5 Italian emulator in the attachment.

If I launch HTC Sense + Mobile Shell and using this ScreenSwitcher, does it means the 2 theme are available at the same time (in memory)? Will this contribute to more memory usage on the device?

If not does it mean when I perform switch action, the program will launch the particular shell for me at run-time and terminate the existing one immediately?

You don't need more memory, because ShellSwitcher does not keep
shells in memory. It stop the current active shell and activate the shell
selected from the shell list on its main window.

BTW when you start ShellSwitcher it shows current active shell as
selected item in the shell list initially.

Please, specify your device model,
WM version (native or custom build).
Does my program work properly?

Hi, I've installed this switcher on my HTC Touch HD with Italian stock rom, but I have some problem to switch back from Touch Flo to SPB MS: sometimes the switcher starts but doesn't switch, sometimes it doesn't start at all.

In addition, after installing it, sometimes I found TF3D came up on SPB MS, for example in the morning when I resume from flight mode.

Does anyone have similar issues ?

Thanks in advance

Mauro

    Any hopes it will detect winterface?

    I'm sorry. Currently I'm very busy for commercial programming.
    Moreover I need some time for research is it possible to include
    winterface as recognizable shell in the shellswitcher.

    I know you're really busy, but...if and when you have some time, the next time you make changes to Shellswitcher, could you look to see if you could include Panoramic Launchpad? Thanks.

    Both Winterface and Panoramic Launchpad are included in my research plan.
    Sorry for delay, I'm working full week with my projects.
    Even at holidays and weekends :)

    Thanks for your interest on my work.
