Who needs an iPhone indeed. For all you Windows Mobile fans out there that either hate the iPhone or just don’t want to make the switch, the good folks at WhoNeedsAniPhone.com have released their application launcher, in “alpha” guise.
Windows Mobile 5 and 6 users with a touchscreen device will be pleased to hear that the launcher is now available for free. If you’re one a “Smartphone” or “Standard” device, then its SOL-street for you guys.
The app-launcher is basically an interface overlay that mimics the look and feel of the iPhone’s icon-based homescreen. It’s pretty trick and it’s available for free download. Combine this with WhoNeedsAniPhone.com’s “Locker App” (which mimics the iPhone’s “Slide to Unlock” feature) and the “Weather App” (no real description necessary), and you have a Windows Mobile device that has a very iPhone-esque feel to it. These guys are working hard to bring more apps and features to the Windows Mobile WNAI camp, so keep checking the site for updates.
Head on over to the WNAI forums and take a peek at the progress that they’re making.
