Scare your Friends with iBrokeWM

There are already similar apps for the iPhone and for Android, but this is the first of its kind I’ve seen for Windows Mobile. iBrokeWM, created by XDA member Corwin9S, is a small and fun application that gives a Windows Phone the appearance of being heart-breakingly wrecked. The app simply places an overlay on the display and makes it look like smashed glass.

Using the app you can have hours of fun watching your HD2-owning friends squirm as they return to the room to find that their shiny, expensive love affair has been completely destroyed in their absence. Rather than apologising, you can then quickly close the application and claim that they should be thanking you for teaching them the importance of a decent screen protector.

The application is currently only available in French, but as the user interface includes little text, this should not be a major problem. It should work for any Windows Mobile-running device with a screen resolution of WQVGA or higher.

The app and information about it can be found in the application thread.

ben_duder is an editor on XDA-Developers, the largest community for Android users. Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above. View ben_duder's posts and articles here.

Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
