Ad-free version of Launcher 7.

The Winphone 7 lookalike launcher, almost like the real thing and in some ways even better!

Features:
- 1x1, 2x1 and 1x2 tiles with configurable colors
- Widgets in a tile! (provided that widget fits)
- Almost real like tile animation
- Almost real like tile re-arrange mode
- Almost real like status bar
- Animated contacts tile (supports G+ synced contacts)
- Pinnable contact-tile which animates like the real phone
- Folder tiles
- Webpage tiles
- Picture hub (use with care, it needs memory!!!!)
- Filterable application list
- Stock wp7-like colors and color selection

FAQ:
- Full tile bitmaps are no more! Normal tiles can now have background image which does the same thing - and you can now have both icon and background on a tile!
- Real view widget tiles may cause jerky scrolling, framework is performing garbage collection at most inconvenient time, there is currently no known cure.. I haven't yet given up hope finding one though
- PICTURE HUB NEEDS A LOT OF MEMORY! IF YOU ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS, STOP USING THE TILE - THERE IS NO WAY TO MAKE MEMORY FOOTPRINT SMALLER, OR INCREASE MEMORY ON YOUR DEVICE
- To add new application to main screen, long press on an application in application drawer and select "pin to home screen"
- Tiles can be made transparent by adjusting the alpha value from the horizontal bar on the color selector
- By default WP7 statusbar shows icons only if you touch it. You can adjust the functionality from statusbar options
- "Smaller tiles" will make 1x1 tile to 172x172 pixels in HDPI resolution. I managed to measure the tiles wrong when I started developing L7 and tiles have been too big ever since. 172x172 tiles seem to be faster too, so I suggest you to try them!

TODO-list:
- folder of contacts tile
- revamp the application icon addition (allow text color selection etc)
- App integration (Twitter, Facebook etc.)
- two-sided tiles
- cropping tool to make custom bitmap selection easier

Its awesome! Insanely fast indeed!

Nice launcher, and refreshing, after almost year of using other launchers. I like it, not for the name (because I rather don't like Windows) or for it reminds me on some other OS, but just for the fact that it looks cool, and that it's very useful on a smaller screens (Xperia Mini Pro). Just, one annoying thing is that whatever "widget tile" I add it is always stretched in tile center even when I select "full-tile widget", and it's untolerably small. Other than that, great launcher.

K It's apps like this that get abandoned soon after I pay for it that makes buying apps such a problem.

Great App, But a couple missing features Fantastic app. I've been using this for over a year now, probably closer to 2. It's a fantastic application, a wonderful home launcher replacement. There are a couple of features that I feel are missing but I can't think of any but one at the moment. The one I wish that there was a chance to mess with was the wallpaper. There is no chance for a static background, it has to move back and forth when swiping to the app drawer. Otherwise, wonderful.
