Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Alecs Windows-Phone-7 Taskbar
XDA member optyqus launched his first release, which is a taskbar with WP7 style and icons on the typical light blue colored background.You´ll also find some nice icons to add your personal style on your device.
The taskbar currently works for WVGA & VGA devices running WM6.5 and up, but the developer will work on other resolutions as well.

Built for HTC devices! Chances for this to work on other devices
(Toshiba, Samsung, Asus etc) are small. A Samsung Omnia version
After almost 4 weeks of work on this project I managed today to finally take out the first cabs. I’m pretty sure this is gonna look good on your phones, it does on mine. Though I don’t particularly like WP7 themes, I must agree that their light blue tone really looks good on a pitch black background, so I decided to set this blue-square look on the taskbar.
INFO (read carefully)
This is a work in progress! Some icons (not many) are not skinned yet; further skinning is scheduled, but for now my work focuses on adapting the icons for W/QVGA. CDMA users will have to wait a few days for an updated cab, as I did not had the time (and patience) to draw the cdma icons for this release. Some of the icons were created by modifying images available on the web, thus credit goes to their authors. Please, do not post questions like “Will this work on my X device?”, just try at your own risk and find out if it does; it’s hard for me to know the effects of these cabs on different roms and devices. Due to the current rom abundance it’s impossible to create an universal taskbar cab file and to make all users happy. I cannot be held responsible for any eventual damage or disfunctionalities following the installation of my cabs.
Don’t share this on other hosts/websites without my permission. You are free to use and modify this project for private use, but don’t modify it and post it here or anywhere else without asking me first. If you are a rom chef and want to include this taskbar into your rom, drop me a PM first (notorious chefs can use this without asking me, but please send me a post-notification)
