GDesk for UIQ 3 Mini Review

I just saw this in the Ipmart Forums and in Softpedia and it looks like a great Symbian UIQ 3 application. Getting bored with my default “Today” application, I decided to give GDesk a try.

“GDesk is a free, customizable and extendable desktop system. With GDesk, icons can be placed on the desktop representing applications, page links and plug-ins; these can then be launched by tapping them. Plug-ins can be added at any time and as required; further plug-in functionality will be provided over time.

Once you load GDesk, it will take over your standby screen, you start off with an empty screen and start adding shortcuts to your applications.

You get to move those shortcuts around around the screen and set an image for the background.

Some downside to it, you will lose some functionality like not able to key lock by holding the \”Back\” button, dialing a number won’t work as you can’t enter numbers in the GDesk main screen.

Check out GDesk screen shots below..
