A home screen replacement that make your Android look like a Windows Phone

QiHang Dev Team's Launcher 8 is a home replacement that applies Metro-layout to your mobile device's home screen, making it look like a Windows Phone.

It changes everything: the app drawer, the icons, the homescreen structure and even the lock screen. In other words, a loyal recreation of Windows Phone's interface. If you are fan of Window's tiles and its accessibility, the scrollable app drawer and the customizable icons, you should give it a go.

Launcher 8 is a well-designed, smooth and highly customizable launcher.
