1) In the PointUI forum there's instructions on how to re-assign the left softkey. To relaunch Home, you should have an entry for it in your Programs list, or you could create a new shortcut for it.
2) I think it has issues with non-English OS's. Localisation is always fun.

No entry in Programs folder. Tried to copy the file that looked most as an .exe file through File Explorer. I know it is not .exe, but I am comparing it to Desktop Windows. However, that did not work. So how do I make a new shortcut on my PPC? A nice thing to know..

Well i think it looks great, and while the interface is swish, ironically their own config menu's are really unintuitive (see: uninstalling...). I've removed it in the end for two reasons: I couldn't adjust in-call volume on my Hermes with the wheel, and it didnt display notifications on the "home" screen, eg when using palringo.

Here's hoping beta 2 will built on what is a promising app!

Anyone think that this is better than the HTC overlay found on the HTC Branded TyTn II?

Different yes, better? That's a matter of opinion. It has a few bugs still and won't suit everyone. But it does look good. Personally, I like it.

i'd love it . . . . . . . . . . IF it worked.

it crashes my phone within 10 seconds of being loaded, and its a real pain in the arse to uninstall.

they say its come out of beta, with basic problems like that its not even out of alpha yet

hasn't crashed mine yet either, seems pretty good. if in the future it does everything htc home does, works with 3rd party plugins and allows custom skins it could get really good.

At the moment I have it running and use it occasionally. Its one button press to get to the normal htc home screen so I switch between the two.

It has crashed my phone a few times. What I don't like is, I can't seem to end programs without going into task manager. I want to be able to hold down the X or the _ as it appears on my phone to kill processes.

I love this software - it's made windows mobile useable - the best interface i've tried on my Kaiser! It's fast, nice looking and uncluttered. The new version 1.51a seems to be the best so far (Installed it today).

It's a lot quicker to get to the programs you use frequently than with the HTC home screen (Which is limited to just a few programs), plus accessing the comms manager, config stuff, text messages is possible without changing home tabs. HTC Home is ok, but PointUI Home is far better.

Down sides are that there are a few bugs (With my Kaiser sometimes the touch screen does not work in favourites, so need to use D pad or arrows to select, plus sometimes it's hung and I've had to go back to HTC home to sort it).

I'm sure bug's will be ironed out, and new features added to keep this great program moving forward.

You may try new Winterface. It does almost the same as PoinUI.
Here is the link to a bunch of independent reviews on Winterface.
Here are the screenshots:

I tried Point UI on a Vox E650 as there is now a dedicated Smartphone version. The interface is lovely particularly the sliding homescreen enabling the viewing of weather and calendar. It has real possibilities and is very attractive. The main issue was it was very power-hungry. I don't know if they use Sli-clock but that could be the reason. It would also be good if it returned to Point UI when exiting all Windows apps. To uninstall I had to remove in Add/Remove in Programs, manually remove the folder in Device Programs and maually remove the shortcut in the Windows folder. All in all not quite there yet but shows great possibilities :D

hmm not good. I will stay clear of this for a while...



I have to point out (excuse the pun) that I've installed point ui twice, once on a blackjack 2 and now on my new Tilt, and both times it ate up my baterry and messed up my gps. With the blackjack, I couldn't get a satellite fix no matter what I tried while it was still installed. After uninstalling, i was able to get a fix but the signal was too weak to maintain connection if the hanset was anywhere except sitting on the dash with an open view to the sky. Before I installed it, I got full signal anywhere inside the car.

I ran into the same scenario with the Tilt. Formatting, hard resets, leaving the battery out overnight; nothing.

It's slick and looks like it might be worthwhile someday, but unless they address these issues, I must advise against using point ui home.
