New WP7 Lock Screen for HD2
Due to the imminent advent of WP7 coming this fall, developers all over the net are beginning to release packages to make devices, not compatible with WP7, at least look like them. XDA member Jaxbot is putting his grain of sand by releasing a lock screen app that mimics the one present in WP7. The simplistic design should make your device look refreshed and rejuvenated.
The app was released in the HD2 forum, but should run on any WVGA device. Moreover, the app is a stand alone app, which means that there are no pre-requisites (other software suites) required to use this.
As part of my Windows Phone 7 theme for the HD2, I have released the lockscreen of the upcoming version as a stand-alone app.
This application will run on any WVGA device.
This app smoothly slides down over the currently displayed screen, and then you can “peek” at what’s under it. To unlock, start at the bottom of the screen and slide up. This can be pinned to your homescreen, or set as a button.
You can find more information in the lock screen thread.
