Remember when we reported back in December that TouchXperience was headed to Windows Phone 7?
Since the last demo video, significant progress has been made on this alternative user interface. The developer, Julien Schapman, says that TouchXperience now benefits from Metro UI to create fully customizable screens in which you can place applications, contacts or even maps. TouchXperience is currently in the testing phase but unfortunately is not accepting any more testers. Though, Schapman does accept donations for this project and does say that if you are willing to donate, to contact him to obtain the application. When we look at the list of features below, this could become a fairly feature-packed UI.
TouchXperience for Windows Phone features:
- Custom panels and widgets
- Interactive backgrounds
- Applications and games launcher
- File explorer
- Contact manager
- Communication manager
- Profile manager
- Task manager
- RSS reader
- Web radios
- Integration with Facebook and Twitter
- DLNA support
- Network drives support
- Skydrive support
- G-scrolling support
- Windows Sideshow support (if MS let me create drivers and services)
- Live tile support
Let us know in the comments below if you could see yourself switching from your Metro UI to this alternative in the future.
