‘The Host’ Windows Phone 7 UI Released
The release of much press-coverage of the imminent Windows Phone 7 operating system has spawned many look-a-like themes and applications, which allow older devices to imitate the look and feel of the new software to please their tech-hungry owners.
One of the more popular of these modifications was WP7UI by XDA member ashiqiqbal. Recently, the project has been terminated and reborn as ‘the Host’ – ashiqiqbal’s new WP7-like home screen replacement.
‘The Host goes one step further than WP7UI ever did, by offering additional customisation tools to its users. For instance, animated tiles are now available as well as finger-swipe navigation and support for landscape mode.
‘The Host’ is a standalone application and, unusally for such a release, is compatible with almost all resolutions found on Windows Mobile devices. If you would like to add a little bit of WP7 to your device, simply download the .cab from the application thread.
