Yandex.Shell 2.0 is Great, Smooth, Fast and Not Available in English (Download)
Among the home replacement alternatives that managed to set apart from the usual variants there is SPB Shell 3D, Next Launcher from GO Team, and TSF Shell we already covered a while back. Yandex.Shell also poses as a great offer in this regard, more so with the latest offer.
Yandex.Shell is not available on the Play Store in most areas but it is provided completely free. As such it can be downloaded from the Store as a free download for users in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Turkey. Having tested it I can say the first impressions are really positive, as it is very smooth and easy to understand, even with the English translations missing, though may be available in the near future. The launcher comes with its own widgets built-in and there are a lot to choose from in the dedicated menu.
One interesting option Yandex.Shell integrates is the ability to offer a 3D for glasses interface in the settings menu. It also comes with a 3D carousel view to switch between screens, and you can place all your most frequently used widgets on the same screen to keep up-to-date with all the latest local news, weather and traffic. There is an integrated search engine built-in for finding things of interest both online and in the apps menu.
