Well Xperiancers, the search for additional components and application continues and any chance of getting a new look’n’feel on the device, i jump at it.
And today i came across iFonz.
iFonz is a clone of the iPhone interface with a lot of customizations, a fully graphical design, and animations. Written in .Net, this is by far the best iPhone interface clone i have yet seen on the device.
I have tried out Winterboard but didn’t like it. I also tried the iPhone interface theme for Wizbar Advanced Desktop but that was too buggy and slow at times, plus switching from landscape to portrait or the other way around sometimes required a refresh of the today screen.
Icons can be easily edited/added and can point to any application. Furthermore, you don’t have to find icons for each application as iFonz has the ability to grab the image from the Exe itself.
The only problem i see at the moment is that in landscape mode the carbon bar is not full – finishes before the Music button. But that to me is not at all a let-down.
Some tips though; in iFonz setting disable the Startup Animation as that only takes more time to load the app. Furthermore after you run iFonz, you will notice that the icons are way small. To fix that simply go into the settings and change icon size to 84x84 instead of 42x42. Also turn off the Right-To-Left gesture for loading settings – it is annoying if you slide the screen right-to-left and instead of changing the page it loads the configuration.
Check out the screenshots below and if you want to try it out, then give it a shot. More information here.
