IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Yandex already localized Yandex.Shell to English and other languages. You DON'T NEED to download my manual translated version anymore.

Just go to Google Play Store link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.yandex.shell to install the official localized Yandex.Shell version.

========== DEPRECATED ==========

Yandex.Shell ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.yandex.shell ) is an intuitive interface that makes using Android devices a breeze. It only takes a second to customise the various screens, while the interface automatically sorts your apps and widgets. Simply use the 3D carousel to switch between screens.
You can place all your most frequently used widgets on the same screen to keep up-to-date with all the latest local news, weather and traffic. The built-in app search tool will help you easily find an app on your phone or online.

The problem is it's in Russian and not available in English. So I download Yandex.Shell from Yandex.Store and follow lhurtado's guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=38629332&postcount=19 to auto-translate 99.9% of Yandex.Shell into English.
Hi, just translate Yandex shell apk. This is HOWTO:
  • open the apk with winrar, 7zip, etc
  • go to \assets\skins\skins\texts\ru
  • open spbshell3d.txt
  • inside is the text you need to translate from russian to your language
  • modify this file with the traduction and save it. you must preserve the variable (%s, %u, %i, etc) format
  • delete META-INF folder inside the apk
  • sign apk again agian. i sign it with ZipSigner from market
  • install and enjoy
And special thanks to entony80 for weather translation guide.

This is the latest APK file: English-translated Yandex.Shell v2.20: http://d.pr/f/3DWW
Mirror: http://www.mediafire.com/?72vaxfacftsir9n

NOTE: You may need to backup and uninstall the old version first.

KNOWN ISSUES:
- Some machine-translated English text is funny :)

CHANGE LOG:

- (khanhlnq) Weather information is now in English!!!
- An adjustable program list with folders and sorting added (Shell Settings -> Appearance)

SPB Shell 3D is compatible with my Galaxy S 2.3.6. When I try to install this I get an "analyzing pack error". Are we sure that the file is signed properly or that has not different requirements from SPB Shell 3D???

He translated the Android 4.0 > version.

You need GB version. Download the latest one from market ( using a gb phone ) and translate it manually.

Didn't know about this, it's awesome!

Had a weird flicker bug when the status bar was pulled down on nexus4 4.2.2, but disabled system method wallpaper and now it's fine... Though it might of been the restart shell that occurred that fixed it.

Re: [APP] Yandex.Shell English-translated v2.15 - Cool 3D Launcher [04/03/2013]

OThis is surprisingly fast. The old Yandex Shell was a SPB ripoff, but this is awesome. I haven't produced any lag, even with all the fancy 3D stuff. It feels like an OEM setup. The features are actually usable, even with a bunch of screens. This Yandex guy/team should translate or have someone translate and get the weather and other widgets to work outside Russia. This mops the floor with those ridiculously priced 3D launchers available and is updated more. We should reach out to the dev. With that skillset and the fact that someone has done this for FREE, adding support for other countries languages couldn't be too much of a challenge. This would sell for 5 bucks all day long if it was available in English-speaking countrie

edit- just searched and realized its a big Russian web company; doubt they would have an interest in translating

Anyone got a nice list of RSS links for the news reader?

OP, maybe changing the title from yandex. to yandex will help it show up on searches, I'm sure this thread will be very popular once word gets out more.

Can't understand why anyone would want nova/apex after seeing this. :)

What is the trick? How to pack the apk? I get many errors to apktools b yandrex215 ..... I cant recompile the apk after decompile. I'd like to create Hungarian translation.
I found the How to, but I want to translate all.

I was excited to try this and compare to SPB Shell already running on my tablet. However, was disappointed to find out it has no landscape mode/auto rotation. Is this true or am I just missing that switch somewhere? Would be cool to combine SPB with some of the newer features found in Yandex.

    Official v2.21

    Figured out how to get the official localized Yandex.Shell v2.21:

    (You may want to backup Yandex.Shell data first, otherwise you home arrangment will be lost)

    1. Install official Yandex.Shell v2.20 here http://m.soft.yandex.ru/download/shell/yandexshell-android.apk
    2. Install official Yandex.Store by visiting http://m.store.yandex.com/ on your device
    3. Launch Yandex.Store, signin or create Yandex account
    4. In Yandex.Store, click Menu/My apps
    5. Switch to INSTALLED tab, you should see Yandex.Shell there, tap on Yandex.Shell icon/name to open Yandex.Shell detail page
    6. Now tap on Delete to uninstall v2.20 of Yandex.Shell. Don't worry! :)
    7. After uninstalled, you should be returned back to Yandex.Shell detail page in Yandex.Store. Now click on the green Free button to install the latest official v2.21 of Yandex.Shell with muti-languages localization!!!

    For those who are impatient, this is my extracted APK file of official Yandex.Shell v2.21 from Yandex.Store: http://www.mediafire.com/?1zo25vm5i5v8xhd

    I believe the Google Play version will be soon updated to v2.21 too.

    Enjoy! And kudos to Yandex! :)

    P.S: thanks fox2KMC, samardeep. I will update open thread.
