Animated New Start Menu for WM – WinStart
If you thought creativity for WM 6 and above was about to die, think again. XDA member petititi has developed a very interesting Start Menu replacement. In fact, because of the animations and transitions used in WinStart, you will be able to appreciate the 3D effects that your devices were meant to use. This particular start menu sort of resembles the app drawer of LauncherPro for Android because of the effects used. The app is very easy to customize and gives the user plenty of freedom and flexibility to rearrange the icons to your liking.
WinStart is still in beta stages, but according to the video that was posted by the dev, it looks pretty solid. The best part is that it will work for any resolution. However, if you find bugs with your specific device, let the developer know.
As you can see in the video, my application is a start menu replacement!

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
