Nope – we’re not sure of the point of this either
Fun Droid Review
by on May 30, 2011
Picture this: you fork out hundreds of pounds for a fancy Windows Phone 7 device, complete with its fancy Live Tiles functionality, and then you think ‘Oh, I wish it looked more like an Android phone’. Nobody is likely to do that in our opinion, which renders this application slightly redundant.
It’s not even anywhere near a proper re-skin either, with it basically being a low-res application that makes the phone look like it was made in China for a market stall.
However, we should give props to the person that designed this, as they’ve managed to bring in all the functionality from Microsoft and hidden it behind the appropriate buttons. For instance, the internet icon takes you to Internet Explorer, and the text messaging option really can open up the editor.
But it’s very slow to swipe through and you can’t even use this as your main home screen, as most of the functions from the phone itself aren’t available.
We understand the iPhone version of the application a little bit better as that’s more of an aspirational phone, but we can’t think of anyone that wants to fool their friends with a fake Android phone, especially when it looks so odd.
