Smish is a new app for organizing apps on your computer. The software is technically designed for any PC, with a Mac client coming soon. But it looks ideal for netbooks. Or maybe I’m just saying that because it looks like a cross between Moblin Linux and the Intel AppUp Center, which are both designed for netbooks.

The idea is that Smish replaces the Windows desktop and shortcut paradigm with a user interface that lets you bring up tabs for social networks, the web, your files, and so on. In one way, it’s kind of a big app launcher that makes it easy to find the apps you’re looking for by searching or clicking the appropriate tab. In another way, it’s a whole new organizer for your computer that helps you find contacts, documents, media, files and apps all from a central interface.

It looks like Smish will also have some sort of developer program which will allow third party developers to write applications that will play well with the platform.

Smish is in private beta right now, but you can sign up to request an invitation. Or you can just check out the video after the break to get a better idea of what Smish is and how it’s supposed to work.

  1. I look forward to having apps on my PC. I use my iPhone so much and think an app market on the PC would be huge.
