Android Sense Theme for Windows Mobile

Android Sense Theme for Windows Mobile

Many critics found HTC’s Sense interface a welcome change to the default Windows Mobile homescreen when it first appeared as TouchFlo some years ago. Since then, the application has been ported to Android, with its Windows Mobile incarnations unfortunately lacking some of the style of the port to the former operating system. However, over on the HD2 forums, XDA developer MrBeOTP2 has been hard at work on transferring some of Sense for Android’s trademark sheen to the Windows Mobile plaftorm.

The theming project makes the most of the stylistic freedom offered by the popular Co0kie’s Home Tab modification. Soft keys, program icons and the lock screen have all been skinned accordingly, and the theme includes a unique wallpaper which complements the softer edges of the on-screen graphics.

If you own a WVGA device, you can give the theme a try by following the instructions and downloading the files found in the theme thread.

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.
