Upgrading from a Mogul to a TP and have ?'s about some of my programs

I have had my trusty mogul for just over a year and I really like it but I have an opportunity to get a Touch Pro. Two programs that I use quite a bit on my Mogul are SPB Mobile Shell and Iconsoft's PhonEX 1.4.
I like the feature of both programs a lot because they let me do more with my fingers and less with my stylus, particularly so in PhonEX.
What I like most about PhonEX is the haptic feedback when I use the dialer - I can feel the quick vibrations when I press the softkeys.

I've done lots of reading and I know that Touchflo will do a lot of what Mobile Shell does but would like to know if anyone has feelings about which would be better. Should I keep MS or go with the touchflo (I know I can switch it off and try MS, I'm just looking for past experience and opinions).
As far as PhonEX goes, from the TP manual I downloaded, the dialer and phone software looks somewhat similar to PhonEX but not the same. Is there a haptic feedback on the TP? Has anyone tried PhonEX on the TP and like it? Again, I have the software and can try it but the new 2.0 just came out last week and I was wondering if it would be worth upgrading to. Theres also a free trial of 2.0 but I'm looking for usage experiences that I can read about before my TP gets here.

Thanks,

David

Re: Upgrsding from a Mogul to a TP and have ?'s about some of my programs

David,
I too, had the Mogul and made the switch to the Touch Pro. Most of the trusty apps I had on my Mogul works great on my TP. Well, the majority, apps like SKb group sms- had to get the VGA version. I unchecked my touchflo and got a hold of a VGA HTC Home http://img9.imageshack.us/i/colorsel...home%20diamond and added PhoneAlarm and it became even better. I did try SPB Mobile Shell, I forget where I found a tweaked out version and it worked great. Way better than touchflo. However I was hooked on the HTC Home to give it up. I also personally did not like PhoneEX, not too fancy. For a dialer, I use the free IPC Black Dialer http://img403.imageshack.us/i/ipcbla...black%20dialer get here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=438412 I also used as my today screen; Scarybear's PowerLevel http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...a%3DN%26um%3D1 and Daniel Schumann's UltimateLaunch http://media.photobucket.com/image/d...L_programs.jpg also check out phonealarm http://www.pocketmax.net/phoneAlarm.html Oh and yes, there is haptic feedback...I disabled mine...it drains the batt faster. The TP is a great phone- it was hard leaving and selling my mogul...but I am glad I did. I got tired of running out of memory on my Mogul- and I haven't experienced that on my TP...

I hope I was of some help to you.

Montecristo,
Thanks for the reply and the links as well. You have been very helpful.

Rereading my original post, I realized that I had had one too many margaritas before I posted it.

Thanks,

David
