Remember that Contacts app from WP7Android Project we previewed a few days back? Well TheRedDrake just informed us that the Contacts app shall be released to the Android Market next week!
As we said in our preview, there are some hidden features, which we’ll tell you all about in our upcoming review!
As we’ve stated in a previous posts, a group of developers going by the name of WP7Android Project are working on creating a number of apps to apply the Metro UI used in Windows Phone 7 to Android. Here we have a preview of the first app that they are planning to release, the Contacts app. It works almost like the ordinary Windows Phone 7 app, but has some notable differences in functionality. Read on past the break for our review.
Anyone remotely aware of the goings on in the tech world has undoubtedly heard of Microsoft’s venerable mobile operating system, Windows Mobile, being put to rest.
Also, this person would have undoubtedly head of Microsoft’s replacement, Windows Phone. A complete rebuild, Windows Phone brings a fresh perspective to the smartphone world. Whilst it has all the functionality of Windows Mobile, Windows Phone features a brilliant new UI, the Metro UI first seen on Microsoft’s music devices, the Zune line up.
Now, a group of developers with TheRedDrake (or 00GHz as he is also known) at the helm are working to bring this user interface to Android. This tremendous undertaking started in October 2010, and after some hard work they have pushed out Alpha and Beta versions of the Contacts app, albeit on an invitation basis. Read on after the break for screen shots and videos of these apps in use.
