Handy Shell - an Advanced Replacement for S60 Active Standby Screen

Epocware, a subsidiary of Paragon Software Group, announces Handy Shell, a brand-new application replacing the entire S60 Active Standby screen. Handy Shell takes over all functions of the S60 menu key, while adding extra options or disabling the unnecessary ones.

Handy Shell allows the user to take complete control over the device’s screen and customize it according to the user’s wishes thanks to attractive new features, such as three customizable views and five plugins options:

  • Today view completely replaces Active Standby and collects all important info on your smartphone’s screen.
  • -Digital clock, date, alarms
    - Application shortcuts
    - Phone indicators (Bluetooth, missed calls, new messages, new emails, active profile, active theme)
    - Calendar events
    - Weather data (5 days weather forecast with weather type icon and temperature)
  • Applications view gives a fast access to frequently used applications.
  • Contacts view shows 12 favourite contacts with optional dial or create message actions
  • Dial and Start allows shortcuts to the desired contacts or to launch applications from any of Shell’s view, simply by typing the first characters of the phone or name on the Today screen.
  • All Plugins can be moved around the screen, easily customized, or activated and deactivated.

In addition, Handy Shell includes a “Weather” Plugin with five-day weather forecast for the Today screen and a one-year subscription to the Handy Weather service. Handy Weather is the easiest and most reliable way of accessing local, as well as distant, weather information in Celsius and Fahrenheit – all in a mobile environment. The detailed five-day weather forecasts are supported by satellite weather maps and include four layouts: morning, day, evening and night.
