I'm enjoying this on my D3.
I'm not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens.
Why would anyone want this Romper Room looking launcher? Just curious what the draw is?

I decided to try it in the spirit of getting a taste of Windows 8 since I'm getting a new computer in a couple months.
I like it. Gives me an option to switch it up from Go Launcher EX, which I like as well.
When I first installed Anall Lockescreen I changed the color but it didn't take and now I can't remember how I did it before. Tapping on the app in the Drawer or under Manage Applications does nothing. Doesn't help that I deleted the Lock Tile that is there by default on install. HAHA
Also, I tried sideloading on my Kindle Fire and it won't work, sadly. I would really like to mess around with this on a tablet.
Overall, I give it high marks.
If you go into your setting and select 24 hour clock, and then deselect it. It will fix the 24 hour clock problem.
If you like Windows 8, which I do, it's a pretty cool launcher. Still running it as a matter of fact :big smile:
i ran it for a few hours on my phone i liked it .. i love windows 8 just waiting on vzw to release a phone worth having
Currently playing with this launcher on my note 2. Be cool if a dev or themer could make a launcher that adds the minimalist of windows tile with the pizazz of android launchers.
I'm still using this and the last 2 updates have really improved it. If you tried to create a folder tile it would FC. That is fixed. Creating an app group is still messed up I think but with the folder option fixed I'm not too worried about that.
Overall I think it's an excellent launcher. I think GO Launcher EX was actually bogging me X2 down because switching resulted in better performance.
I like this, a lot. Makes me want to consider a Windows phone next time around. Only glitch so far is the lock screen. This launcher overrides your stock lock screen, so you cannot have a password to unlock it. My GF's phone was stolen last week and so we learned the hard way that you need to keep your phone locked. Between personal pics and stuff, you also have access to your Gmail, work email, social media, etc... A lot of things that can help steal your identity, or gain access to mobile banking, etc...
We have Gotya! installed, which silently snaps a pic of any incorrect PIN entry, and emails you a picture of the jerk trying to get into your phone along with a GPS location, but with this launcher, it bypasses the PIN unlock screen, so Gotya never activates and anyone can access your phone even when you have a PIN set up.
To me, this is only one flaw in the launcher, but it is a SERIOUS one.
I believe you can turn the W8 lockscreen off to keep your pin unlock

I thought so too, but I cannot find the setting anywhere. I will keep looking and report back.
NVM, found it. Duh. LOL
Hey guys it's me again... A simple little question I have here, I am trying like crazy to have my contacts tile like they do in the video, any help would be appreciated..
I am running this on a rooted Droid 3, no special rom..
Here ya go:
Thanks Wicked, I did read that. And I did try it a few times before I came in and asked. But maybe it's a "certain widget"? Not to sure, maybe you know...
Thanks again for the quick response..
Been using this launcher for a couple weeks now, it is my daily, to the extent that my next phone may be to ditch Android and go the Win Mobile route.
Have you tried turning off then back on?
I had the same problem the lock screen sets its self as a device administraitor you must go to your settings unselect it and then uninstall
Hit the menu button and choose edit. Tap your contacts tile and then tap the little pencil icon. Choose refresh contacts and then your contact images will show like the video.
