VITO Technology just launched an application/program launcher similar to that found on the iPhone where users can arrange their icons on a series of different screens. Tapping and holding down on the icon will enact an iPhone-like jiggly behavior and users can remove the icon. The new launcher is called Winterface.
Winterface comes with an integrated task manager, a way to create photo contacts as a “program” icon to launch the contact’s information quickly, a lock screen requiring a swipe to unlock.
The program will be good for users who either want to jazz up their device with a different look and feel than the traditional Windows Mobile Start Menu or the Program folder, or for users who need a quick way to launch and categorize their programs based on what they used most or another efficient manner. With Winterface, like the iPhone App screen, you can have different screens for different icons. Screen 1 may be reserved for messaging icons and photo contacts, screen 2 may be reserved for productivity applications, screen 3 may be used for games, and so on. In contrast, the Windows Mobile Program folder categorizes everything by folders and icons in alphabetical order, which may not be the most useful means for users who have a lot of programs.
More information about Winterface can be found from iWindowsMobile, VITO Technology’s portal to applications that enhance the Windows Mobile experience.
