Review of Handy Desktop

Symbian platform: UIQ
Review first published in: Palmtop User magazine, issue 7


Screen shotIt's perhaps an indication of how pervasive the Windows desktop has become that so many developers feel a need to produce something similar for UIQ. Handy Desktop joins the fray late in the day but scores highly by not trying to be too ambitious, unlike Tracker and Active Desk. It's unashamedly a place to put shortcuts to the things you want to do most often, perhaps a new text message to a particular friend, a call to your partner, editing a specific file or visiting a favourite web page. You can have as many pages (folders) of shortcuts as you like, each with their own wallpaper, which helps to give an appropriate vibe. The range of possibilities is impressive, although you do have to keep returning to the desktop manually, as there's no option to switch automatically when opening the P800/P900 flip. $15, from www.epocware.com
