A Windows Phone 7 style launcher for Android.

G+ page https://plus.google.com/113192992285762862111

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)

TODO-list:
- configurable animation parameters (soon)
- folders (in donate version now)
- clock tile of sorts
- more animated tiles
- facebook integration

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

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.

Changelog:

Version 1.1.12
- contacts tile now flips instead of fading
- .12.3: L7 is now launchable like ordinary application

Version 1.1.11
- backup and restore updated, now it should work again
- backup format changed, old backups no longer work (but then again they didn't work anyway, so nothing is lost)
- search button can be removed (L7 settings->application drawer->hide search button)
- search view now displays wallpaper
- updating cache displays progress bar
- android style drawer now follows transparent icons setting

Version 1.1.9
- removed one unused bitmap per application from icon cache (should slightly help with memory issues)
- removed one expensive graphics call from render loop (should give tiny bit more smoothness)
- app drawer icons now have background enabled, to disable it go to L7 settings -> Application drawer -> Transparent icons
- fixed crash when selecting application
- fixed issue where tile modify didn't change app icon
- if you do have problems, use the mail - logcat logs will guarantee an answer!

Version 1.1.8
Dreaded Update Sunday is upon us all!

Notable changes:
- built from donate version 1.1.8 codebase
- picture hub & flipping mail tile added
- smaller tiles for greater performance (and more authentic look)
- new fly animation (old one is gone, there won't be option to resurrect it, you might want to adjust anim speed to ~350ms)
- proper landscape mode (note: landscape has separate tiles from portrait mode)
- caching to improve startup speed
- better scaling to qHD and HD screens

Version 1.0.1.20
- contact tile photo loading has been reworked
- possibly fixed crash in animated contacts tile
- juice defender should no longer cause hang while unlocking the phone
- fixed issue where unpinned tile space was not reclaimed correctly
- when adding new widget you can choose "real widget views", which will give greatly more interactive widget experience
- existing widgets are unchanged

Version 1.0.1.17
- if launcher crashes it will now attempt to resign from being default launcher (just to make sure you won't end up with unbootable phone)
- out of memory errors now attempt to show message on screen before crashing. If that happens you must start reducing memory usage (use smaller bitmaps, less tiles etc.)

  • Your location
    approximate location (network-based)
    Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.
  • Your messages
    read your text messages (SMS or MMS)
    Allows the app to read SMS messages stored on your device or SIM card. This allows the app to read all SMS messages, regardless of content or confidentiality.
  • Network communication
    full network access
    Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
  • Your personal information

  • Your social information
    read your contacts
    Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your device, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.
