Windows Mobile phones aren’t known for their finger-friendly features. For the most part, the user interface is designed for navigating with a stylus, and while Windows Mobile 6.5 remedies things a bit with a new home screen and program launcher, it’s just a stopgap while Microsoft prepares to lose the stylus altogether in Windows Phone 7 Series.

But if you happen to have a Windows Mobile phone or PDA and like being able to do some things without a stylus, there are some third party apps that can help. S2P is one of them. It’s a free, finger-friendly music player for devices running Windows Mobile 5.0, 6, 6.1, or 6.5.

S2P stands for “Slide 2 Play”, and the app involves a lot of finger-sliding goodness. For instance, if you have a large music collection, you can navigate it by sliding your finger along the alphabet on the right side of the screen to find the artist, album, or song you’re looking for.

The music player also features finger-friendly controls. The application looks kind of friendly, there’s a good reason for that. It’s almost an exact clone of the iPhone music player.
