Projects / Sunscape


Sunscape is a screen saver and locker for PocketPC mobile devices. It is similar to the iPhone slide to unlock feature, but targets the Windows Mobile system. It provides an interface that displays configurable information about the handheld device. The graphics used are completely replaceable, allowing users to build their preferred custom interface. The main goals are to keep Sunscape completely configurable to the user as well as maintaining a very low memory footprint.
