    Launcher 7's review

    Published: 2011-07-24, by .

    Launcher 7 is a launcher with the layout of Windows Phone 7

    • Replica of Windows Phone 7 layout
    • Works great
    • Add/remove widgets from the home screen
    • Intrusive ads
    • Not too many customizing options

    "Make your Android looking like Windows Phone 7"

    If you like Windows Phone 7appearance, you can change the layout of your Android to make it looking like it. A launcher is an app that basically changes the home screen, the dock and the app drawer appearance.

    Launcher 7 includes original Windows Phone 7 backgrounds highly configurable as well as layout animations. You can set from the animated contacts tile to any other tile color (color, widgets, and so on). By default the widgets displayed on the home screen are: "phone" (call log), "messages", "internet", "Gmail", "Market", "Music" (with a stunning shortcut logo), "contacts" (phonebook) and "video". However, you can add/remove as many widgets as you want. If you scroll the screen to the right, you will find the "app drawer" in a list format (vertical scroll).

    The main flaw we've noticed is the ads (a launcher shouldn't have ads, but a paid version with extra features). What's more, there aren't too many customizing ptions regarding screen transitions, icon effects, themes, and many other features that other launchers do included.

    Launcher 7 has been developed by Timo Kujala, an emerging developer who has just released this launcher and its donate version. He's reaching remarkably success with it though.

    Despite of the catches the launcher works pretty well. If you love Windows Phone 7 layout and you want to have it in your Android this is a good choice. But bear in mind that this is a limited launcher regarding customization.
