Windows 8 Android

by TGN

No I didt get the title wrong. Im talking about a new launcher for Android called WP8 Launcher. Its available for free at the Play store BUT its in Chinese. Dont lose hope folks because a talented developer Frenzyboi over at XDA forums has translated it to English for us.

The WP8 launcher has the Windows Phone lockscreen and app drawer, resizable icons, tiles-based home screen and you can choose from different Windows 8 colors offered. It is the closest thing to the unreleased device.

I played with it for a while on my Note 2 but didn’t find it too impressive. Ive used Windows 7.5 devices before and 1 of the really great features of it is the live tiles option, sadly which wasn’t available in the launcher. Also the windows devices are smooth. Like really smooth. This wasn’t. Now it wasnt lagging or anything but the transaction was a bit……choppy.

Im switching back to my favorite launcher for now which is Nova, however I would definitely recommend you guys to try it since its free. After all, Android users get to try Windows 8 before Windows 8 is actually launched.

To grab your free copy head over here. Installation is simple………download, install with any file manager like ES file Explorer or my favorite Solid Explorer and you’re good to go.
