Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

MobileSense: A Quick look
MobileSense is one of the many different tweaks and widgets you can add to your SPB Mobile Shell, and in some cases improves it. This one is a little old, but it is one of the best that gives you the feel of Android’s Sense UI on a Windows Mobile phone.
This particular tweak has not seen an update since early February, but I though it is worth reading about. The tweak was made by naong, he has created a very simple but easy to use list CAB of tweaks and widgets.
The widgets give your device an Android feel, so if you have been in the market for a new UI, this might be your next stop.
