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?

iPooey Simulates iOS 4 on Your WP7 Device
Ever wanted to trick your friends into thinking that your Windows Phone 7 Series… Phone… is really some super secret prototype iPhone device? Luckily XDA forum member enahs_ has the perfect application for you. With iPooey, you can now simulate the look of iOS 4.x on your WP7 device. As a marked improvement over Cupertino’s stock interface, however, clicking on an icon will cause your phone to emit some flatus. In the words of the developer:
Trick your friends! Tell them you get a new prototype iPhone hardware, or you installed iOS on your WindowsPhone. Looks like iOS interface, but when they click it, a cartoon poo appears where they clicked and it plays a nasty fart sound! Use it to annoy those other snobby stuck-up iPhone users!
It goes for $0.99 on the Marketplace, but I am making it available for free to fellow XDA members; if you can sideload apps via a xap file. If you like it and use it a lot, feel free to support me by purchasing it on the Marketplace if you want. But, enjoy the free version for now because XDA is awesome!
Needless to say, this release is intended to the gentlemen of the XDA community. But if you’re eager to get your hands on this prank, be sure to continue on to the application thread![Thanks Svetius for the heads up.]

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...
