From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Revitalize Your WM6 Phone With This WP7 Keyboard Skin!
Not too long ago, we covered a rather unique looking keyboard skin for Windows Mobile by XDA forum member aedon. Now, upon request, he has created another keyboard skin meant to deliver the look and feel of the gorgeously minimal Windows Phone 7 keyboard.
Retaining the same functionality as his previous work, this skin works in every layout as well. Who said that Windows Mobile is dead? In the words of the developer:
I had a few Requests to make a keyboard that resembles the Windows 7 Phone onscreen keyboard.
This keyboard Will skin every layout in your phone. It will also require an aditional step other then just installing the cab, as the cab will only skin the layouts, it will not change the letters to white as seen in the screen shots..
You will need to download the file in the second post and follow all of the directions there to e able to have white letters.
If you wish to remove this cab, you will need to follow the steps again but with the other file to return your font to black.
Feel like enjoying this incredibly tasteful skin? If so, be sure to continue onto the modification thread![Thanks backlashsid for the tip.]
