Ad-free version of Launcher 7.

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

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.

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.

Very nice but... I'm just wondering. Its december already why is it there's no update? Are you abandoning this apps? I've just bought it this morning.
