Hello guys,

WP7Android apps for free here

So what's all about? !!

A innovative UI currently in development which will have 20 apps and a simple, elegant, fully customizable GUI. Available screenshots in second post.

Also a ROM[no Kang], which aims to become better then CM&MIUI and improve android overall. If you are a developer or a user who wants to help just PM me or Mr.Highway

ROM signup:
Apps closed beta signup:

What else can you expect from it?

All apps are planned to be the best on the market so you can expect a rich user experience with many features that will include competitor ones and original.

How many apps will the UI have?
About 20. Here is a list with most of them:
5)People with IM and social 
12)Stock + Currency converter 
16)File/Task manager
19)Theme Engine - Desktop App

How is everything organized?
I'm leading a multinational team of 9 developers. As for the project it has 4 stages:

1)All apps with basic features in one app
2)Adding advanced features
3) Integration between all apps
4) Implementing UI

When will this be released?
Something like end of April or middle of May for beta if things go well. And final release 2-3 weeks later.

When can we test?
Some will have the chance to test early in private beta testing. All others will have to wait for public beta.

Will this be free?
Free with ads. Estimated prices in third post.

If there is anything you want to know PM or email me([email protected]).

!! I've seen that a lot of designers have applied to test. In order to benefit from this, we will provide tutorials for building UI's(working with xml and such). Thus our 4 official UI's will be done by our designer, and if anyone wants to provide his own he will be able to easily do so

So I've decided to keep the third post as a personal blog where I can share my thoughts about the project, your comments and what else come in my mind. So let's begin.


In about a day my project got over 24 pages on Google. So many that I got bored counting . This looks really promising, never imagined this level of success. Also first page on XDA.

Managed to read a few and there are two things that were not quite right. One article said that I should change the name to metroid. I don't think so, that will mean M$ flame . Also another thing is the supposition that all team members are xda guys. Only one is(which wants no money or IR), the rest are paid devs. There is no chance that free time devs will finish this project in time. Hope I made clear some things.

Also this week meteo and new contacts will be finished. Next week IM with AIM,MSN,Yahoo,GTalk,Skype,Facebook and Jabber support will be finished. Tell me if you use others as well.

Edit: Thanks to the guy who emailed me to remind me of Facebook chat.


So I thought more about the prices and there will be 2 options:

In app purchase for ads free with
Google - 2.50$
Paypal - 1.89$

Why is it cheaper with paypal?
Google fee is 30%(thievery) and it registers as payment and thus I have to pay taxes. Paypal fee is 0.33$+1% and it registers as donation. I will receive about the same amount in the end(a little less for G option)

So paypal is a better option for all of us, even if some of you hate PayPal. Hope the lower price will encourage you to use it.

Also there will be an update with pics and a video showing more of the UI most likely this weekend.

That's it for now. Stay tuned!!!
