I've made some efforts to completely replace all the standard Windows Mobile applications on my Touch HD with finger-friendly ones that offer fluid scrolling.

You can also continue using TouchFlo3D together with all the other finger-friendly apps in the package!
Use SSMaPa to make them default: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=407777

You can make even better skins with Wisbar Advance Desktop.
Other than Winterface, it completely replaces the today screen, offers the (imo) beautiful iPhone-like launch animation and is completely customizable.
It produces less battery drain and is more stable than Winterface.
As it completely replaces the today screen, you can embed any shortcuts, today plugins, all kinds of status icons (e.g. RSS, weather, tasks, wifi...) and you can choose whether to display the taskbar and/or bottom bar or hide them.

There are some beautiful WAD skins in this forum, but I chose to make one myself because I wanted to have the launch animations.

You have to put some effort into it but Wisbar Advance Desktop is really great and better than Winterface, in my opinion, which produced crashes and did only sit on top of the today screen instead of replacing it.

Well, back to my package. I thought I'd share it with you:

You can download the whole package with instructions (includes shareware) from here:

Additional application you might like:
FingerMenu: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=459125

Package will be updated from time to time.

Update:

- tutorial for making apps default (Explorer, Player, Calendar etc.)
- added Kinoma FreePlay (great media player)
- updated some of the applications

Nice ! Will be sure to test it.

If someone wants a user-friendly phone, please go buy iphone instead. The reason I bought HD was of its hardware / screen and the unlimited possibilities to change everything / code without owning a stupid mac.

Thanks again for this awesome package.

it's really awesome, seen on your HD. But on mine i've never seen something more unstable than Vito apps: it's a continuous crash, it runs in full screen, it takes control of the device and overrides everyting. it's a pity, since winterface has really a good look. But i have bought a wm device to HAVE control, and with winterface i feel i have an iphone in my hands

You can also watch the video.

I will probably add Throttlelauncher and FingerMenu to the next version (ThrottleLauncher has just been updated for WVGA).

Perhaps I can also find some easy to use IM application (does Pigeon still crash?).

That's a really nice idea and an interesting set of applications. Thanks for sharing those - there are some (like TaskFacade) that I wasn't aware of before.

How on earth do you install these themes for Winterface?
There is no Skin or Theme icon in Winterface and I can't find anywhere on the net how to install a skin.
Can someone please help?
