Grab That Fancy Windows 8 Start Screen For Your iPhone

By Sam Gibbs on at

That fancy new Windows Phone 8 start screen certainly looks awesome. So awesome in fact that iPhone users might feel a wee twinge of jealousy looking at it. No matter though -- someone's ported all that Metro goodness from Windows 8-proper to the iPhone and you can grab it right now.

It uses DreamBoard, one of our favourite jailbreak apps, and even includes a "desktop view" just like Windows 8, which boots you back to the traditional iOS home screen. Somehow I reckon this would work even better on the iPad. Yours for $1.50, or just under a quid, from the ModMyi repo on the Cydia store. [Jailbreak Nation via Ubergizmo]
