If you own a Windows Mobile device and prefer to use a shell system, but like to mix it up for a bit of variety, ShellSwitcher could be the app for you.
XDA forum member s_v_l recently updated his ShellSwitcher app to to version 1.0.3. The app is a system utility, which allows you to easily switch between shells, including the ever popular SPB Mobile Shell, Touch Flo 3D, HTC Sense, PointUI Home 2, plus others.
