Pointui 2 Gives Touchscreen Windows Mobile Phones a New Lease on LifeJohn Herrman2/12/09 6:21amFiled to: Windows MobilePointui home 2PointuiWinmoTf3dtouchflo 3dPointui homeMicrosoftWindows mobile shellWindows mobile skinsSkinsShellsCellphones41EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkA new beta of the hotly praised but seemingly dormant Pointui Windows Mobile shell project is available for download. A quick test leaves us with this tentative verdict: it's awesome.Jason got a pretty serious boner about Pointui Home when he tested the first version early last year, and things have only gotten better. A new, skinnable UI veils most of your common Windows Mobile functions, only subjecting you to the standard interface in a few instances (most notably, texting). The system supports extensible applets, and comes with a few obvious ones: a today screen, weather, messaging and tasks. These all sit within a somewhat complex but easily navigable finger-friendly top interface, which lets you swipe through screens quickly and smoothly.
