StreakSense Alpha brings HTC Sense to Dell Streak

Htc-sense-dell-streak Since Android has been on smartphones, phone manufacturers have been trying to put their own personal touch on the mobile operating system's interface. Motorola has the universally panned MOTOBLUR, Dell loads Stage on stock Streak builds, and HTC uses Sense, which is often regarded by Android users as the best of the custom UIs manufacturers put on their devices.

Dell Streak users who like HTC's Sense UI will be pleased to hear that Spidla, a developer on xda and creator of the Simple Streak ROMs, has just released an alpha version of a Sense port dubbed StreakSense.

While the build is in a very early stage of development, and many features such as WiFi, camera, phone calls, and screen rotation are either very unstable or downright unusable, the alpha release of StreakSense is available for anyone to experiment with. Those looking to use StreakSense for purposes other than testing it out should wait patiently for a later build.

If you want to try this new alpha build on your Streak, then check out the video and the hit the link below.

    Looks very cool. Looking forward to it. Is this ROM base on gingerbread? Why are you using it upside down?

  • The Streak is weird, and my understanding is that the screen is actually installed upside down. You’ll see in a lot of videos of developer projects for the Streak that the screen is displayed upside down. It’s generally not until a later version that the developer is able to get it do flip 180 degrees to display properly.

  • Impressive progress considering that HTC hasn’t opened Sense to devs yet. Once HTCdev launches this summer and the Sense 3.0 SDK is available, I hope to see this new ROM take advantage of it. Sense 2.0 (what this build is running, I believe) is nice, but 3.0 is niiiiice! :-)

  • Variety is nice, but I’d take a cyanogenmod port over anything else please…
