Give Your Android A Taste of 7 With Launcher 7
Undecided on what device you will be getting next? Can’t think of a reason to buy a Windows Phone 7 over an Android device? Well, thanks to the efforts of XDA members GinoCorleone and Timo Kujala, you will be able to sleep tight at night knowing that you did not have to make that difficult choice. The team is working on a Windows Phone 7 UI for Android, which is, from everything that I have personally seen to date, the closest resemblance to the full UI experience. All tiles, menu, top bar, and animations are present. In addition, the devs are working to get more tiles so that you can customize the device to your heart’s content.
The UI may have bugs present as it is still a beta version. However, all animations are as smooth as butter. If you have any feedback to leave for the devs, please do so.
I’ve started an icon thread a while ago.

My goal is to make the icons for Launcher 7 to create a realistic WP7 look and feel. (the app alone is not enough :P)
You can find more information in the UI thread.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
