Updated, now with Kin Loop! See below

KinLauncher is exactly what it sounds like: A kin-style theme for Windows Mobile. The screen is very simple (and fast), featuring the following customizable buttons:
  • Messages
  • Phone
  • Email
  • Browser
  • Music
  • Camera
  • Settings
  • Alarm Clock
  • Recent
  • The Spot

The settings for these links can be changed in \Windows\kin_config.txt

Instructions are simple: Download the cab (below), run on your phone, go to Start Menu -> kinlauncher, and your set!

The default settings are configured for the HD2, if someone can make a configuration for other devices, that would be great!

The Loop version
Now you can have all your friends status messages on your homescreen! Install the KinLoopSetup.CAB file, login to Facebook, and then swipe Right. It's beta, so give me feedback!
Also, clicking the Spot now takes you to a custom Facebook update screen. Try it out!

Unlike my WP7 theme, it was meant sortof as a filler for older devices (gotta find some use for my 8525..). Also, if anyone with a Kin could get me some high-quality screenshots, that would greatly help the quality.

Thanks.

No, but that will probably be added in future versions.

Will this be okay on a QVGA 2.5" device like the Samsung Intrepid?
