iPhoneUI v0.2a Released
Member chabbe11‘s iPhoneUI has been recently introduced to the site as an iPhone-style shell for Windows Mobile 6.0+ phones, and has just been updated to version 0.2a.
The shell is designed principally for use with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, although it should work perfectly with any phone of WVGA resolution. It mirrors the iPhone’s simplistic SpringBoard app-launching screen, multiple homescreens, toggle buttons for WiFi and Bluetooth and its ‘slide to unlock’ feature, while still allowing you to enjoy your favourite Windows Mobile applications. According to the developer, iPhoneUI uses a mere 6.5 MB of RAM.
You’ll need to install .NET CF v3.5 to run the shell – downloads of both are available in the application thread.

This year, cardboard returned...
