Looks pretty cool, do you know any videos of it in action? I've been pretty happy with my TF3D lately.

Re: PointUI 2 is out, and it looks promising

It is very smooth. A big pain to add a city to for weather, think vogue again! It is very nice, but they are trying to limit the free one in hopes of the paid version coming out being the better choice. It is running around 5mb more program memory than I have on my TP when I have touchflo3d running, meaning tf3d actually is the smaller choice?! I couldn't believe it either especially when I saw how fast it was. I couldn't find a way to get the slide show to play from storage card, theres no dedicated audio player, and I also had a little trouble getting around in it, of course that would come with time. I like tf3d better, except for the smoothness of pointui but it is definitely a step in the right direction. I also didn't like how the task manager is disabled, the one in the top right corner. It seemed touchflo esque when playing with it. I am sure some will love this and I agree that it is very nice, but tf3d is very aesthetically pleasing!

Re: PointUI 2 is out, and it looks promising

Hmmm.... not sure if it's better than MobileShell. The clock is tiny and there are only a handful of cities. They did a great job on the product, very smooth and fast, but I'll have to play with it for a few days to really get a good impression.

I am excited about built-in theme support though!

Downloaded it. It is smooth and is much like the Bell UI. I'll play with it for a day or two then go back to Touchflo.

Load it and it is fast but limited. Did not find a quick way to enable bluetooth.

Re: PointUI 2 is out, and it looks promising

I'm running it. I like the feel alot better than TF3D.
It's certainly smoother and faster, and the landscape mode is way better than that of the one in TF3D. It's not perfect by any stretch, it's lacking applets... Sure we can make our own... but that isn't the best, since not everyone is a programmer. I do miss the flip clock from TF3D, I hope someone figures out a way to port it into Pointui.

As for the Weather/Cities thing, they have a work around if you check their community Forums.

I do like the Contacts dialer though... I never was really a fan of the flip/style favorite Rolodex that was in TF3D, Since you can't change the order of the tiles... It was more novelty in my mind...

But thats just my 2 cents.

Re: PointUI 2 is out, and it looks promising

I am playing with it. Pretty nice interface. Not as great as I had hoped. No way to flip through pictures without launching album and no way to check for new emails manually without launching messaging. Sounds from the forums like it is pretty customizable though.
