Some people love the custom UI HTC has created with HTC Sense running on top of Android. It offers some nice eye candy and features that are supposed to be HTC exclusive. If you own a Samsung Galaxy S3 and would like to run the HTC Sense-Style Task Manager, here's how you do it.

XDA has posted instructions and the downloadable mod on how to get the HTC Sense-Style Task Manager up and running on the Samsung Galaxsy S3 I9300. You'll need to be running the stock XELLA firmware or using a custom ROM derived from it. You'll also need to download the file from the forum and flash it in Recovery mode.

The HTC Sense-style Task Manager mod features a card-like interface showing previews of your currently running and recent applications with the app names and icons under the previews. The mod can run in both portrait and landscape views and allows quick access to the Task Manager, Google Search, and the option of killing all of the currently running apps with a single tap on the "Remove all" button in the UI.

An Italian Web site has posted a video guide showing the install process and how the mod works on a Samsung Galaxy S3. You don't need to understand Italian in order to follow the how-to guide as it's more of a visual process and simple to follow.

If you're familiar with the way webOS multitasks with its intuitive card-like interface of swiping through open applications and flicking them off the screen to kill them, you'll love this mod.
