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!
For all screen resolutions (WVGA, VGA, WQVGA, QVGA, square…) and all windows version (after 6.0). You don’t need to have Manila on your phone, but the design is a Manila’s like…

Please report any problems !

You can find more information in the application thread.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
