The application is aimed at OEMs specialized in user interface customization. With many Android OEMs producing hundreds of customizations annually for various carriers around the globe, the amount of resources spent while developing and testing these customized versions is tremendous.
However, with SPB UI Builder
OEMs will be able to quickly customize SPB Shell 3D, a standard UI solution, where UI elements can be flexibly and easily changed to meet the branding requirements.
Some of the UI elements that can be altered without direct involvement of software engineers include: 2D graphics (widgets, panels and other UI controls), widget's and full screen panel's layout, static 3D object and 3D model animations.

In addition, the new SPB UI Builder can operate the changes directly to the devices over-the-air for real-time preview.
Once the customization process is complete, an APK installation package can be created, right from the toolset via a single click, to build a custom shell solution hosting the desired design.
Other highlights of the SPB UI Builder toolkit include:
- 2D graphics customization;
- 3D models and animation customization;
- Widgets and panels layout customization;
- Default configuration;
- Over-the-air push to the device;
- Creating customized .apk installation package
