Jealous of the new KIN UI? No? Well, too bad because now you have the option to run a UI overlay on your favorite Windows Mobile phone, but without all the limitations.
Turns out someone at Windows Phone Hacker (yeah, new to us too) has come up with a sophisticated looking KIN UI. Seriously, considering what this is it actually looks pretty darn good.
Called 'KinLauncher', it makes available eight tabs on your homescreen, each linking to a core aspect of your phone: messages, email, phone, music, settings, browser, camera and alarm clock.
It might not permanently replace your Sense UI, but hey, it's free and seems like worth a shot if you're bored. You can grab it right here and after the break, watch a video demonstration of it in action.

Tried it on my TP2 and it works fine. BUT graphic quality is so low and that makes it look bad. and also when you open keyboard it doesn't fit your screen like the way KIN does. I uninstall it anyway!
Good to know! Thanks for being our guinea pig! lol
