Good start but... I like some of the customization abilities but it's lacking more windows 8 feel. Such as live tiles like for News apps, gallery, weather etc.. Also need to be able to move tiles from one section to another with just a hold and drag option. good job on being able to add widgets. I do like that the side scrolling works with my Microsoft Wedge mouse. I will continue to play with it some more. No updates from Dev since made!

Great start. It needs a little more... It is a good start. There is a little lag, but not bad. The app drawer needs to look a little prettier. We need up to 7x7 tiles and the ability to drag them. Lastly, add a scrolling up and down feature to the launcher, not just left to right. All in all it gives an authentic Windows feel and it is pretty stable. Great job!

Nexus 7 first gen Kinda what's promised and I say kinda because this is extremely laggy and not like what is in the video I actually feel cheated. Fix this.
