Themes for Windows Phone


The first release of the Themes for Windows Phone application. This early release comes with all the goodies we've demoed, and without further ado, here's the juicy bits:
Customize any tile (system or third party, including Marketplace) Use your image as a background for the tiles Use an accent color for overlay transparency Import themes Export themes A bundle of joy with easy personalization ;)

Requirements: A developer unlocked device (no interop needed) Mango

Instructions: Download the file, run ThemeConfig, and start customizing!
Import the XAP files from the themes folder, and then hit deploy with the phone connected and Zune turned on.

One theme can be deployed at a time as the actions for each icon set matches a particular guid, so for now unfortunately you cannot have a mix of different themes - part icons this and part icons that.

You can customize the tiles - by using .ico files from windows ! :)

watch the following video before continuing, as it wil…

Mango Battery Status

Mango Battery Status (v4.1) - for all unlocked phones, in 20 languages
It shows the percentage on both sides of the tile and a matching icon on the front. You can log the battery data (percent or voltage), show the data on a graph and create a report.
The app also lets you view the current processes and memory usage and you can open the battery saver. 
Working for all (Chevron/Developer) unlocked phones.
