Point home – a new ui for windows mobile phones

Point Home in action

I installed Point Ui's Home tonight because it was one of those things I've been meaning to do. Anyway, after 2 seconds I was amazed. The user interface design is slick and smooth without being too in your face. They have taken interaction, icons and patterns from the tango project and put them to good use. Everything just works so well, that its hard to explain without a video, And I would shoot one if it wasn't so late. I only wish it was a little more stable and there were controls to change the colours. The blue is a little too blue for my personal tastes. More detail about point home below…
