Great job! I'd love the panel bg to be black or slightly transparent, but since it looks like it's just XML stuff I can modify myself. Thanks again for another great mod

So it is basically like the horizontal recent windows task switcher in AOSP? At least you don't have to male this MOD for the AOSP and AOKP ROMs haha

Nexus S (GSM i9020a)
AOKP (Milestone 4)
Air Kernel (3.45)
OC 800/100 (Lionheart)
Live OC (100 - Noop)
v6 Supercharged

guide is done

little sad because this thread got lowest rating as soon as i post this.....:(
(and then someone give 5 stars so now rating is 3.00..)

maybe it looks not good for his eyes but at least i think this thread is not that looks insincere or worthless...


anyway, guide is done : [HOWTO] Change ICS App Switcher to Windows Phone 7 Style

This is amazing! Any chance of getting this ported to the GSM Galaxy Nexus?
EDIT: Sorry just found this post. Can't wait to try this on the Galaxy Nexus once the guide has been released :)

sorry but i think.. to make this mod, i need actual device to get proper layout.
(i have 2 devices but these are all wvga..:eek:)

but all things are explained in above guide. :D you can make your own easily.

Nice:)

Edit : I have one question, how do I close the apps from it?

same to default app switcher's landscape mode. (swipe up or down)

frankly, making this mod for AOKP rom is difficult for another reason...:eek:

I'm confused why anyone is even discussing making this for aokp. It already exist in the rom.

yes. this mod is based on WEBAOKP mod by brucekey. so basically same to that except these things :

- thumbnail : higher resolution, bigger, proper ratio(to have full screen view without distort)
- remove app icon and fading edge.
- background color
- adjust landscape layout to make look better.

i did some trial and error to get current layout. and i think the result is far more similar to wp7 than original WEBAOKP mod. regardless of personal taste..
but if it looks nearly the same as original one so you can barely find any difference, i'm sorry about that.
