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 .

You can find more information in the original thread.
