Evgenii Kostrov
Many of you have at least once heard of the developer of mobile software like SPB Software. Some of these many met on the Internet about the chic mobile launcher SPB Shell 3D, from the same developer. The application is for a very long time it was paid, and, frankly speaking, it is not cheap.
Last autumn, the search giant Yandex acquired the company SPB Software, a first result of this event was the appearance of the free analogue SPB Shell 3D - Yandeks.Shell. True, it was not free for all, but only for owners of Android-devices from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Turkey.
The possibilities of this launcher allow you to place on the screen a few beautiful desktop, they can fix a lot of great widgets, most of which have a very high quality animation. In addition to the widgets on some desktops Yandeks.Shell can place shortcuts, and folders, name them so as you'd like, and fill out applications.
Each folder you can change in size from the smallest, with tiny icons present in her application to medium and large, with the image enlarged icons and captions under each of them. In addition, application icons can be sorted into folders so that you will be able to run the most frequently used applications, without having to open the folder itself.
Fast navigation on the desktop by using the slider located at the bottom center of the screen. Thus there is a three-dimensional carousel that allows you to quickly switch between the available desktops. Desktop you can edit, delete and add.
In order to trigger mode to add or remove desktop, you must click on the center button at the bottom of the screen, then click on the lower right button. You will then see if the broken chain of desktops. Pulling any of them down, you can remove the desktop from the carousel, and moving one of the existing bottom of the desktop up, you add another socket.


Like any other application associated with the decoration interface Android-device Yandeks.Shell has a pretty good appetite regarding memory. Also, when using this application will decrease while the smartphone on a single charge. But we all know that worthy counterparts with more modest resource consumption yet, but beauty has always demanded sacrifices.
