Just tried it.. the down side is that it badly integrates into what-ever homescreen is loaded
during the install (not all homescreen are designed to use MS's modular layout), why dosent
it just create its own homescreen.. It also has to be run from the homescreen plugin and
cant be launched as a separate start menu application, in case you dont want it on the
On the plus is looks a tad better than what MS usually does and introduces a new softkey
layout (three buttons instead of two) that seems like a nice change not wasting too
much screen space, similar to some Asian phones..
But why oh! Why? does MS bother keep churning out half backed solutions, they own the OS!!
update it, integrate it, make solutions that work together rather than ones that feel like theyve
been welded together in the same way as second hand cars.. from a usability prospective and
a long time MS supporter i have to admit that the iPhone is kicking MS left right and centre, in
terms of providing a simple consistent UI..
Common MS!! its not rocket science, simplicity and consistency not half backed solutions. If you
don’t have the in house expertise, hire an undergrad they'll probably do a better job..
enough ranting, hers waiting for WM7.. or the next iPhone..
