  1. Looks like a decent launcher haven’t heard much about it like I’ve heard about Nova and other but something I’m sure to try when I personalize a phone.The searching features seem interesting.

    1. One thing that will surely catch your attention about this launcher is that it’s by Microsoft. A pretty popular launcher and performs really well. Not customisable and limitless like nova and the others like it but very polished and functional launcher. Give it a try.

    2. Sure sure 😀 once I get a new phone 🙂 So this is something thats aimed at the people who don’t want to tweak but simply want a change from their old homescreen .

  2. I remember the time it was launched and it barely had one or two features to set it apart from the other mainstream launchers. It was good none the less. I have always loved the utility page in this app and that has improved a lot and more recently they have started to focus on customisability too.
    It has really grown into a large array of exclusive features and functions which is great to see. Microsoft is really working on this phone.

  3. I prefer Nova or Google launcher over any other, but I’ll sure give this one a try to see what this launcher has to offer!!
