So first, I would like to state I've been searching for significant tips in order to call this guide "10 tips for true happiness with SPB Mobile Shell 3.1". Unfortunately, Mobile Shell does not need 10 tips to provide true happiness, the shell is so good it's enough to make the user happy as it is.
On the other hand, I noticed that most of the tips are not as significant as the TouchFlo tips and tweaks we published few months ago, and definitely not as tricky as the 10 tips we gave about the Samsung Omnia.
Nevertheless, here is the incomplete guide with 5 tips for true happiness with Mobile Shell 3.

Adding more pages to the lifestyle window
I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of widgets, but since Mobile shell's widgets panels allow adding applicaiton shortcuts - you can make those pages similar to the iPhone pages and therefore arrange your favorite apps into nice sections and folders:
HKLM/software/spb software house 2/spb mobile shell/widgets/homescreen
"pagecount" = 6 for exampe, save, softreset
Easily switch between SPB Mobile Shell, TouchFlo 3D and Today:
Yep, SPB is great, TouchFlo is great, but none of them has a decent tasks module embedded (and of course other things you can add to the classic today screen but cannot work in the advanced shells).
For that purpose, it's important to keep a quick and easy access to TF3d and Today - read more about this tip in the links below:
Add the task manager to the carousel view:
This is a really nice one, and I wrote about it in the past, for more details - check out the link below:
