Launcher 7 [Windows Phone 7] Style Lancher for Android

A Windows Phone 7 style launcher for Android.

Unlike other current WP7 launchers (Windows Phone Android, Metro UI), this one allows you to properly modify your start screen. Just long press on a tile and drag tile where you want!

This version is free, but does have an ad in application list. Ad free donate version is available if you don't like the ad.

Also supported:
- 2 x 1 tiles
- Original Windows Phone 7 backgrounds!
- Freely configurable tile colors
- Launcher options are available from Application List (press menu in app list)
- Layout animations
- Animated contacts tile! (still work in progress)

- allow font selection (easy)
- allow apps to modify their own tiles (hardish.. at least if you try to make it even a bit safe)
- bundle some icons and hub tiles (meanwhile you have to google them yourself)
- although app list is now cache it could still use some more love for icon loading
- app filtering to app list

Consider this as alpha quality at best. If it crashes, please email me or report the crash and we'll figure out a fix.

And don't grow excessively attached to your home screens, they may get reset between updates. I'll try to avoid that for now though.

Recommended HDPI device, tested on Galaxy i9000.

MDPI devices should be now able to show things in correct scale, but performance and memory usage may very well be a problem in these devices.
