Best Metro-style Launcher for Android. :D With very cool extra functions - like the "cube" and the Windows 8.1-ish form of it (Tablet mode). But, if there are actually Android users coming from Windows Phone, there is one thing you'll have to get comfortable with: In WP, you just swipe to the left and see all your installed apps. Here, you have to set up that page first, by adding an App-Drawer. Also that page has more options and kind of another look & feel. Boy. But overall, this is the best one you can find here. x)
I have always bee a Microsoft fan and when I tested out a windows phone a while back I fell in love with the system,however I personally became a bigger fan of the Samsung Note phones so that's what I went to indefinitely. Now I have BOTH! It works great on my note 8 and I have soo many options I can customize. I'm still testing it a bit before buying but so far it's perfect.
Fantastic launcher and feels very much like Windows phones but without the limitations. Live Tiles would be great but not a big issue. Swiping left when in the App List to get back to the Home screen would make it perfect for me. I have a Swipe Right gesture to take me to the App List just like on Windows but there's no shortcut to the Home Screen that I can add by swiping left. I have to use the back button on my phone which is not ideal. If this could be fixed it would be 5 stars from me
This is by far the best Windows launcher available. I really like an appreciate all the extras that the original windows os didn't offer. Paying for the live tiles is worth it. I have some suggested fixes and additions to really complete the windows experience in the launcher. I hope to see them added in future updates! Suggested fixes 1. When you clear the notifications from the notification panel the badge count on the tiles disappear. It would be nice to still have the badge count and updated info on the live tile so that I am reminded. 2. The email app badge counter always says "1" even if I have more than one unread email. And it would be nice to have the tile flip and scroll the sender and title of the email and some info just like the sms live tile in the launcher. And it would be more like Windows. 3. Please give the tile group tile the ability to be resized even down to the smallest tile sizes you offer (half and tiny). 4. In launcher gestures please add the ability to have swipe right to home screen like windows. 5. Please add windows style drop down notification/menu style. 6. Basically keep all your customization options + add everything else to be just like Windows
I come from Windows 10 Mobile and I love this SquareHome launcher. However, it has one major problem for me: none of my apps from my Work Profile appears. Each of my work apps is managed by AirWatch Agent. And none appears in this launcher, which is a deal breaker. Hopefully a solution is forthcoming because this launcher is wonderful. I'll give it four stars. If this major problem is fixed then I'll find a way to rate this launcher with six stars.
Great launcher. Been using Nova till now this made me switch my launcher. Is my daily launcher. I have one issue though, I have the navigation and status bar hid, but after I created my home screen the entire length of the display screen is not used. I a gap left at the bottom does not fit exactly to the entire length of the screen. Anything I am missing?
- supports Dutch
- added "cube icon" in the "tile size & style" options
- fixed some bugs
