I've been looking forward to this for a *long* time:

http://www.pointui.com/products/home-2

Direct Link VGA/WVGA Cab:
http://downloads.pointui.com/public/...ree.Latest.cab
Direct Link Xperia Panel:
http://downloads.pointui.com/public/...ree.Latest.cab

We still have to wait a bit more for the Pro version though.

Thoughts?

I have the ambition to keep this first post updated with PointUI related
material (applets, themes, modifications etc) as they start to appear

Also runs as a panel. Seems to be pretty good so far (2 mins worth of play).

It's really fast and smooth. Seems like an exceptionally well thought-out UI, good solutions. One of the better I have seen for WinMo. I'd say I'll get the Pro version as soon as it is released!

point UI is an example on how software should be written. its small, fast, very optimized and highly functional. sony should have hierd these guys to write their joke (panels)



seems to have a lot of potental but what i noticed so far:


-the arabic text does not work on this (works fine everywhare else)
-there is a lot of wasted spaces on the wvga version
-some parts are not finger friendly
-looks a little too plane. tf3d looks better
-not enough customization
-email and SMSs should show more text with all the free spaces unused

Any way to disable the RSS feed on the home page of the UI?

Here's how to add your own city:

fatso485, I think the wasted space is there because they have no separate version for WVGA which utilizes the extra space - they just use the VGA code and unfortunately ignore to take advantage of the additional pixels. Perhaps in the final release? And there's applets and themes, I think they might change that
