New iPhoneUI version released

Love it or hate it, the iPhone interface has revolutionized the world of mobile devices as we knew it back in 2007. Everything from that point onwards has become more fluid, more finger friendly, and has gotten lots more eye candy for us to enjoy our devices to the max. From that point onwards, many apps, skins, and today plugins have been released to try to emulate the  feeling of the iPhone on Windows Mobile, without actually having to own an iPhone.

In its latest installment, xda member chabbe11 has developed a complete shell to make Windows Mobile look and behave like the iPhone UI (hence, the name of the shell) but only for resolutions of 480 x 800 (WVGA). In version 0.3a, he includes several bug fixes and speed improvements to quench the thirst of even the most avid ifanboys.

Latest Changelog

  • MAJOR design/UI improvments in mainmenu, lockmenu, topbar. I rewrote the code and in that way was able to resize all images in app.
  • Removed gprs icon in topbar
  • Fixed a bug with the calendar widget. In previous release the notify images came in the way when an appointment was stated.
  • Added a Wifi topbar icon
  • Changed the bluetooth image
  • Added bluetooth headset icon in topbar
  • Added sound and mute icon in topbar
  • Added a headset icon in topbar
  • Fixed a bug with the lock button and the hibernate function
  • Repositioned all the icons in topbar.
  • Fixed minor bugs in main app
  • Added signal strength percentage text in topbar
  • Changed Wallpaper
  • Major speed improvments in both mainmenu and lockmenu.
  • Added battery percentage in topbar
  • Added battery charging icon in topbar
  • Added a battery monitor form
  • Fixed a bug in topbar
  • Added a “No Network” text in topbar if the phone isn’t connected to a network
  • Changed bubble image
  • Deleted the clock icon in mainmenu due to beeing unnecessary
  • Fixed a bug with the vibrate function which made the phone vibrate like crazy when the dial/phone icon was pressed
  • Added youtube icon (requires that you have it installed in phone)
  • Changed badge image

    Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

    Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
