I have downloaded this program and once had it on my calculator, but I don't anymore. Not that it's not functional, just that I don't need it.

The few reasons for which I say this are that I back up my calculator at least once a month, so I'm not worried about using RAM; I don't mind typing Asm( before assembly programs; and I found that programs run only about half as fast if they are archived (I wrote a program to test this, but I don't remember what the numbers were, something like 40 or 60 versus 100 executions of a While loop with an increment operation per second).

Still, I would rate this program highly, just not useful for me (who wishes to squeeze no less than as much speed as possible out of my calculator).

NoShell OS is really simple! And i love simple things.

Size: 8.5/10 (Same as Mirage OS installed)

Interface: 10/10 (Can't really rate this, because it has none)

Usability: 10/10 (Just press PRGM button and use a program!)

Installation: 10/10 (Super easy)

Function: ?/10

Speed: 10/10

Overall: 9/10

Really good, i would use this instead of MirageOS. But it seems to have a glitch with a very few programs, not really anything to worry about though.

Noshell is quite awesome. Contrary to what other reviewers have been saying, it is indeed compatible with Omnicalc.

However, it doesn't work properly with Super Mario v2.0, the level editor, ZTris 1.3, or Phoenix. The first two have graphical glitches, and the second two don't start at all, and the battery has to be pulled out.

The good news: it's compatible with other apps we love. The bad news: it doesn't do what it's supposed to.

This is no doubt the most awsome app out there besides Omnicalc. (They tie) The only problem I have is that they're not compatible! When I chain them, the "real(##," functions in Omnicalc don't work! There may be more problems, but I have not seen them yet.


UI: 9/10

Not very original, but usable and easy on eyes

Functions: 11/10

No comment needed

Size: 9.8/10

Standard size. OK unless low on space

Useability/compatibility: 7/10


Overall: 9.5/10

Of course, this isn't just an average of what you see above.

This is a great shell or is it a Noshell. It will run any archived program from the home screen and allows you to run Ion or MOS programs from within basic programs. The only issue I could find with it is that asm programs get messed up when the hooks are chained with omnicalc or xLIb. So if you use any of those libraries in your programs this will not work fo you. Other than that, this is awesome.

User interface: 10/10 You install it and then never look at it again.

Usability: 9/10 All you do is go to the program menu and run a program but the issue with xLib and omnicalc limit is from runing programs that use them.

Speed: 10/10 Runs just as fast as if ran from any shell.

Overall: 9.6/10 All he needs to do is fix the hook chaining glitch with omnicalc and xLib and it will be perfect.

Noshell is awesome! It runs anything from the homescreen, just like it says. The only thing that could be better is if it had options like "enable lower-case" like MirageOS does, but that's not improtant; anyways, that's what APPS like Omnicalc are for. Other than that, this is a great idea!
