You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work?

Get That WP7 Look On Your Android Device With WP7 Lock App
While Windows Phone 7 may not be the most developer friendly platform out in the open these days, there are certain aspects of it that still call out to people’s curiosity and attention in general. The Metro UI has been constantly criticized and acclaimed by many as it appeals and somehow manages to repulse people at the same time. I guess Microsoft should have codenamed Windows Phone 7 as “Paradox.” For those of you in the “I like it” side of the spectrum, but that are sporting an Android device, you should be happy to learn about the fact that there are several elements from this UI that have been copied with uncanny resemblance on Android. The latest addition to this group includes the lockscreen, which instead of simply dragging an object, you drag the whole thing when you swipe your finger across the screen, much like a bed sheet. XDA member lucas.scott is responsible for bringing this piece of WP7 to us Android users in an attempt to bridge the gap in between the two platforms.
The app is currently located in the market with a lite version that has some customization options disabled. Please leave some feedback if you get it for your device.
Hey guys ,
As most of you know , I work with the WP7 Android group . We are a group dedicated to bringing the WP7 ui to Android . I am hoping mods do not shut me down for *advertising* , but this is the only way we can do it and have it still be beneficial to us . This is 100% free , and should not be in violation of any XDA policies . If I am mistaken mods , let me know how i can fix it before locking me down .

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
