Launcher 7 Makes Android Look Like Windows Phone (Video)

Advertisement

We’ve shown you various ways to make your Android-powered smartphone look like Windows Phone. Most of those methods involved loading a custom icon set into a custom launcher and spending quite a bit of time laying out screens — and even then, the screens swiped left and right, not up and down like Windows Phone does.

What we really needed was a launcher app that looked enough like Windows Phone, but was easy to use, and still let you use most of your widgets.

The app comes in two flavors, an ad-based version and a “donate” version without ads. The ads only exist in the app list (not on the homescreen) so they don’t get in the way. The developer says the app is “alpha” but it looked very polished and never crashed in my testing.

Before you ask “Why would I want to make my Android look like Windows Phone?”, it’s because you can! Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments.
