PointUI Home 2 Pro Released – No Trial?

Posted On: Tuesday, May 05, 2009

I am late in reporting this news, but in case you haven’t heard… PointUI Home 2 Pro was recently released. Is it any good? How can one tell! There is actually no trial version for the pro edition!!! What were they thinking?

Someone i know has a copy and he is going to lend it to me try it out to decide if i want to purchase it or not. While i wait for that, read on for the description posted by PointUI about the Professional version of their Home 2 interface:

“Building on the platform Home 2 Free provides Pro takes your experience to the next level. On the surface you’ll see additional functionality with a Contact Card with Details and Personal History, a Messaging screen that allows for custom viewing options, Folders in your Favorites and a growing list of Customization options including, Haptic Feedback (on some devices), Auto Lock, GSensor Support (HTC devices only) and Automatic Update checking.

“Under the hood the scripting engine capabilities are extended to include more advanced features like GPS, SQLite Database Support and Advanced Customizaton Hooks to override default functionality Home 2.”

    I tried it from "unofficial sources". It has a few new options, but nothing too important to make it very different from the free Home2.

    Although the community can make applets, there's really only 2-3 applets worth having. Just like MS3, there's a lack of widgets / applets that could bring great functionality to these apps. And they should've made a few "professional" applets specially for the Pro version.

    And I still can't pick my city from their lists. I know I can do it with a little file editing, but it's not what one expects from a commercial app.

    But maybe things will change in time...

    There are a few problems I have with the PointUI interface. The available applets aren't simplistic enough. I am aware of how easy it is to install if you know your way around a phone, and maybe since its mostly people who know how who are installing this interface anyway, but a quick CAB install would be much more user friendly. Other than that my only other mentionable complaint is the lack of an option to change the weather from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

    Here you can find the fully running CAB file via the P2P Seed

    Try installing mobile spb shell v3.0.1.. the time lag is very less and also the phone will not freeze when you press the panel button. it worked wery well for me..
