I Loved Windows Phone for their UI with Live Tiles, so with this App I get the Best of Both worlds - an awesome Android device (LG V20) with my great old WP8 UI via Launcher 8. Only the Gallery Live Tile doesn't display all my Albums, otherwise Excellent.
I've finally found a tile launcher that actually works. It took a little getting used and figuring things out and now I am very happy with it. Not getting my notifications were annoying until i figured it out which meant just taking time to READ and follow instructions but my reason for 4 stars is the fingerprint lock never works other than that im sold as a VIP member
I've been using this ever since I had my old HTC Evo, and it was one of the best launchers I've had, never have been bothered by ads and certain conditions of a free version...EXCEPT on a lockscreen, which means easy bypass access to someone's phone...especially a business phone. When someone says, "I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed" and you feel worse than if they were actually flipping out on you, well, I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Have you thought about maybe an "Ad" Tile that must be on the home screen for the free version? (a small tile that can't be removed, but can be moved, on the free version)
This launcher is flagged as malware by malwarebytes. It's looks great and has good tools and options but it's slow, buggy, there are issues with many widgets not working. The developer never responds and after having paid for the other version I'm annoyed as it offers less than this version. They mention online that they will offer free VIP status to this in lieu of the paid app not working but never action requests.
In my Oppo F1 plus it is not able to display notifications. In call i can't even get to know whether i am in call or not. Good app. Gave my phone a window phone look but was not able to unlock with my fingerprint. So three staris more than sufficient.
I paid for Pro and it totally messed up my phone so much that I had to do a factory reset. Whatever you do pay nothing. Nobody responds. My husband also paid and got nothing but trouble. Free version is the best it gets.
