Review: Launcher 7 for Android

Leave a comment


A Windows Phone 7 style launcher for Android.

Launcher 7 Screenshot

Unlike other current WP7 launchers (Windows Phone Android, Metro UI), this one allows you to properly modify your start screen. Just long press on a tile and drag tile where you want!

Ad-free version of Launcher 7.

If you want to try, go download the free version first and see how it fares. If you can’t stand the ads, Paid version is for you :)

Same warnings apply here. It may crash, it may surprise you pleasantly. You have been warned.

Launcher 7 Homescreen Settings

TODO-list:

Paid Version:

- wp7 style notification bar (soon, very soon)
– configurable animation parameters (soon)
– app filtering to app list
– folders
– clock tile of sorts
– more animated tiles
– facebook integration

Free Version:

- configurable animation parameters (soon)
- app filtering to app list
- folders
- clock tile of sorts

Consider this as alpha quality at best. If it crashes, please email developer to report the crash and they’ll figure out a fix.

Recommended HDPI device, tested on Galaxy i9000.

MDPI devices should be now able to show things in correct scale, but performance and memory usage may very well be a problem in these devices.
