V2R Vision to Reality today announced the release of its V2R Active UI, the first fully graphical animated user interface (GUI) for the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6 platform. V2R's Active UI platform has been designed in a way to ensure, that the user may use the device quick and easy in the most intuitive and convenient way. Together with the V2R Active UI core engine, V2R offers plenty of free add-on's in different animations, functionalities and designs to make the V2R Active UI as personal as possible. V2R Active UI is based on V2R's i2i platform and V2R's new Online Design Studio which is the best graphical development engine for applications and plug-in's.

V2R Active UI has been developed as a Today Screen (for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs) and Home Screen plug-in (for Windows Mobile Smartphones) with a standard V2R icon- and animation-set and interesting enough, it seems to work similar to Samsung's SGH-i600 Home Screen Carousel (see our recent review here):

The V2R Active UI Home- and Today Screen plug-in allow users to access the most wanted applications, settings or documents directly from the Today-/Home Screen. The standard version, which is downloadable free of charge, is shipped with predefined templates for animations, designs and functionalities. On the V2R Web page, users can find more animations, designs and functional plug-ins which will feed all the different user needs. In the future, V2R will regularly release new free and payable plug-ins for the V2R Active UI with different plug-in sizes, animation styles and functionalities.

Features:

• Quick start your favorite programs
• Dynamic menu and sub-menu structure
• Finger, stylus and D-Pad control
• High speed graphic animations
• Many different animations are available for free
• Many different icon packs are available for free
• Easy to use menu
• V2R offers to build your personalized animation and design

In addition, the V2R Active UI offers a unique service which allows selected customers and partners to create their own designs and functional plug-ins, using V2R's new V2R Online Design Studio. Registered users you can use the V2R Online Design Studio to create personalized plug-ins by even uploading own images and selecting the applications which should be used. As an add-on to the V2R Online Design Studio, V2R will encourage interested users to become an official affiliate publisher. As an official V2R publisher webmasters and talented graphic designers will have the opportunity to run their own business by developing their own applications and plug-ins based on the V2R Active UI platform. Just be your own designer and start your own business.

The V2R Active UI is available, straight from the Pocket PC Today or the Smartphone Home Screen. As long as the plug in isn't focused, the icons of the plug-in are in the original (reduced) size to provide more space for other Today- and Home Screen plug-ins.
As soon as the plug in gets the focus, the icon size is increasing in a smoothly animated manner. The user can easily navigate through this new menu structure by using the D-Pad, joystick, stylus or even the finger.
Clicking or tapping a selected icon opens the submenu or assigned application.

Active UI Standard is available from V2R's website  and supports Pocket PCs and Smartphones running on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6. V2R Active UI is available free of charge and includes a standard set of plug-ins already. Further free and charged plug-ins, animations and icon packs are also available from V2R's website.

Cheers ~ Arne
