In the world of computing, it is quite common for applications to borrow ideas from other software, and this is certainly true when it comes to operating systems. Just as there are three main operating systems to choose from for desktop computers - Windows, OS X and Linux - so for mobile devices, with users having the choice of iOS, Windows Phone and Android.
Each mobile operating system has its strengths and weaknesses, and whichever one you decided to go for inevitably means having to make some compromises. If you have opted for an Android device but are craving the look of Windows Phone 7, Launcher 7 may just be the tool you have been looking for, as it will enable you to bring the look of Microsoft's mobile operating system to your Android.
Launcher 7 is highly customizable and its interface is broken down into a series of tiles that can be used as shortcuts to app, phone features or Android widgets. The color of tiles, as well as the background image can be adjusted, and achieving the perfect screen layout takes nothing more than drag and drop.
Extra shortcuts can be accessed in the drawer that appears to the right of the main screen, and this can also be used to delete those apps you no longer need. On most devices, the performance of Launcher 7 is impressive, but animation effects can be changed if things perform slowly.
