"Feel at home with Windows 8"

Reviewed by / Mar 24, 2015

A custom launcher made to resemble windows phone 8


Home8 does a decent job of resembling windows phone 8. It has the tile layout, and allows updating news feeds. If you pay, it will also allow updating Facebook and Twitter feeds. A big problem is the full screen ads, which get in the way of use.


Home8 has the windows phone 8 look, with tiles and updating feeds. The color schemes aren't the same, but it does a decent job nonetheless. If you want your Android device to like like a windows phone, this app will do the job.


Home8 has some problems. A big one is there doesn't seem to be any kind of app draw - you'd have to add every app you want to access to the desktop. It also squishes icons to make them fit in tiles. Another issue is full screen ads that get in the way.
