How to Get Windows 8 Metro UI (Sort of) on Your iPhone

We love Metro. Maybe you do too. But you've got an iPhone and don't want to switch to a Windows Phone that isn't even going to be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 8. Well, here's your solution: Metroon.

Metroon is a mod for jailbroken iOS devices—$1.50 through ModMyi—that changes your UI to Metro. It's missing live tiles, which is a pretty big loss, but it also behaves like Windows 8, not Windows Phone 8, which is an interesting difference from an actual WP device. Metroon lets you scroll horizontally forever, where WP only has one vertical screen of tiles, and then a list of apps when you swipe. [JailbreakNation via Geekosystem]
