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.

    All other apps try to improve something when they come up with an update, but this app update totally ruined its originality. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

    This was my go to launcher. Pro version doesn't work on lollipop Samsung S6. I loved this app so much I went back to basic 8. Now this update. This put final nail in coffin with this launcher. I spent so much time creating my themes that are now forever gone. Bye bye launcher 8. It's not worth it anymore. Looking for something more stable.too bad so sad...
