Near to perfection! Great UI but lacks speed in auto-rotation of the screen tested on 2 tablets. Weather needs location update. It doesn't locate my city automatically. Needs good resolution icon when pinning apps into homescreen. Unable to run widgets or pin it. Over all , it's good.

Excellent. I have been following this beautiful application from the begining. You are indeed doing a marvelous work. I am using the pro version. I could say you are almost perfect. Please look at the widget some of them appear funny, like calendar some don't work. I am using Samsung galaxy note pro 12.2 with kitkat. Do not be discouraged. This is the best in the market. God bless you

Just ok I bought the app to support the developer, and i hope this one is getting better. I really like the windows UI phone and metro ui. App is a bit sluggish sometimes.. Its hard to rearrange the icon, and i cant open the gallery trough the icon. For now i give 3 diplomatic stars until the better update #update i cant open my gallery at all on metro ui theme

But needs some work There is a error message when adding widgets in the pro version please fix. Besides that I like the app very close to Windows 8.1 format.
