Have you seen the Windows Mobile iPhone themes that are out on the Internet? I have a Windows Mobile phone, however one of the things it lacks is the iPhone theme which is a very intuitive and cool looking user interface that Apple has come up with – it certainly is very different from your regular style of user interface that you get on most mobile phones.
In the year since it first appeared, it’s had a real influence on other how other manufacturers are developing their own interfaces, however I’ve yet to find one that truly rivals it.
With that in mind I thought I might buy a Windows Mobile iPhone theme for my mobile phone, the HTC Tytn II as the standard themes included are very much work-based solutions rather than anything innovative or slick-looking like the iPhone.
Once you install the iPhone theme for Windows Mobile, your mobile phone display then looks much more like that of the iPhone. If you have a touchscreen then the operation of your mobile phone will start to be more like the iPhone, but since it’s ultimately a ‘skin’ for the Windows Mobile interface, you won’t get all the iPhone’s innovative interface functionality.
However, for prices that start at around $10, this is a great addition to your mobile phone that adds a certain amount of style and functionality to it, plus your friend’s will have less to boast about their iPhones. 😉
What do you think to the look of the iPhone interface, would you want to try it out on your Windows Mobile device? Have you tried a Windows Mobile iPhone theme yourself? What do you think to it? Do they work well?
UPDATE: There’s been a Windows Mobile iPhone theme update that has now added additional functionality including ‘finger gesturing screen sliding’.
