In case you wanted to see a little bit of what it was like to get WP8 on your current Lumia (or at least WP7.8) this is W Phone 8. It simulates the homescreen in upcoming WP8 and the 7.8 update.
You can move the tiles around as well as change their sizes and colours. It’s limited at the moment (so only some tiles can go large whilst for WP8/7.8 all tiles can change to all three sizes?). Some tiles don’t actually link to what they depict. I’m liking it. For those not a fan of lists, you could just have the generic grid of 4×7 icons in view.
#251) W Phone 8
Do you like the new Windows Phone 8 start screen? If you do, then wait no more! This app is a very realistic simulation of the new start screen. You can resize into the new small and large tiles, “install” apps and change theme colour! Design your favourite layout and show off to your friends before Windows Phone 8 is here!
Impt note: this app is a simulation and its just for fun. It is not created by Microsoft and is in no way related to the company.
- Resize tiles (just hold on to the tile until it pops out)
- Install new app by tapping on the marketplace tile
- Change theme colour through the settings tile
Cheers Arts for the tip!
