From my initial look's conclusion:
My takeaways then, after (admittedly only) a day with Launcher 10:
- For anyone who's addicted to the Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile Start screen, then this utility provides a good, though not perfect, way to get the same home UI on Android. But at least you can get the phone interface more familiar than when thrust straight into Android's homescreen layouts.
- If you do go down this route then factor in the £5 purchase, as you will need the premium 'live tiles', even though many applications don't support this functionality - it's worth it for the apps that do.
Here are updated screenshots from the new version:
Many thanks to a keen AAWP reader with his help on the screenshots here, on his personal Razer Phone. You can find Launcher 10 for Android in the Play Store here.
You're going to wonder about the on-screen ads in the settings panes and the lack of 'live' in the live tiles? This is because the AAWP reader concerned has apparently gone all in on not giving Google any more money and doesn't want to use the in-app-purchase(!) Still, if you're OK with a small one-off payment then there are some applications with supported live tile information and animations.
Comments welcome! I think I'll need to set up a spare Android phone here again with this software and see how I get on later in 2019, as the urgency of finding a supported phone platform increases.
