Microsoft had announced the new Windows Phone 8 with new features including a new start screen. Although Windows Phone 7 users will not be getting the entire update, they will still get the start screen. But this update might take time to roll out. But in the mean time, you can try out the new start screen from Windows Phone 8 on Windows Phone 7. W Phone 8 is a freeware app which is a very realistic simulation of the new start screen.
You can resize into the new small and large tiles, “install” apps and change theme colour. Design your favourite layout and show off to your friends before Windows Phone 8 is here.
- Resize tiles (just hold on to the tile until it pops out)
- Install new app by tapping on the marketplace tile
- Change theme colour through the settings tile
