  • If it’s a very controversial launcher that you seek then this is the perfect offer for you. Not only is it the most expensive available on the Play Store yet, but it’s also unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and that is in a good way .SPB Shell 3D finally has a direct competitor that surpasses it due to it’s customization options and speed.


    TSF Shell by TSFUI is one of the most spectacular launchers we have seen on Android. Desktop icons management and customization options are very impressive, with animations that will leave you with your mouth open. Trying to explain it in words is not actually very easy because TSF is an experience quite original, which probably differs from everything you’ve tried so far. The customization possibilities are at a really high level, not to mention the look and feel that while may seem appealing to some, others may find it displeasing. The fluidity also seems to reach a peak level, even on older devices, something very impressive given the high number of transitions and animations of all sorts. You can use one hand gestures on the desktop to perform specific actions, both for the launcher itself and to launch applications. There is also a spectacular multiple selection tool that will allow you to preform actions on multiple icons at once.

    TSF Shell allows you to add widgets, shortcuts and apps on your homescreens just as you would with any other launcher. The difference is that the feel of it is completely different. On the first page you will get all your installed apps, that you can sort and even hide those you don’t want shown. There are different transition effects that you can select for scrolling through your apps. Press the buttom left side corner bottom and you are presented with a perspective of pages. Except the firs apps page, you can add widgets and shortcuts and in general get the normal launcher behavior on the others. There is a shortcut box on the right with multiple tabs, for adding some favorite apps, accesing settings, creating folders and adding TSF specific widgets. Speaking of the TSF widgets, you can download them for free from the Store and enjoy their unique look and feel, with some impressive animations.


    TSF also supports theming, with some even allowing you to change the transition animation, and a large selection of customizable gestures. The latest update to version 1.7.0 Beta a very large number of extra features. The new version now allows you to customize your icon’s background, with the new TSF Icon Designer. You can also add custom covers for music albums. There is a new extra screen menu and optimized performance on tablet devices.

    Bottom line, is TSF Shell worth it? Had you have asked me the same question when the first version was available on the Play Store, I would have definitely said no. With the new version, things are starting to come into place and the launcher is more worth the money you’re going to spend. What is really impressive about this launcher is its very good peed and general performance. Too bad the developers didn’t think of providing a trial version for all to see what this launcher is capable of.

    TSF Shell is available for purchase on the Play Store.
