I'm done waiting Bought it to help development. But it just keeps getting worse. Updates seem to make no difference. Widgets are 4x4 only so they look terrible, tiles move where ever they want even if you are lucky enough get it set up the way you want and then lock the screen they just move around. Yes you can move some tiles around but they never go where you want them. I give up. I am uninstalling this and going with one of the many metro launchers out there that actually work.

Waste of Money - deceptive advertising This app fails to work as advertised. (Purchased Pro version).Tiles fails to stay in place and corrupted the default launcher in my Galaxy S4. Notified Google to remove and refund is desired. Totally at your risk if you buy it....
