    in my limited use so far it's amazing how many little quirks and inconsistencies android and its apps have.
    WP was so slick and consistent

    Hello,

    I just hope the developer of Launcher10 keeps on updating it and making it more and more like Win10 Mobile.

    One more thing--I was trying to make my own icon packs using Icon Pack Generator on the play store... but I couldn't get it to work. My custom icon pack in Launcher 10 was just showing up as empty... I'm still researching this aspect, but this is a lower priority for me right now.

    I guess one more thing... I'm actually using 2 launchers. The cortana app is absolutely horrible, so what I have done is I've remapped my Cortana button to use the Microsoft Launcher instead (which opens to the glance page, and I'm removed all of the home screen/traditional launcher stuff through its settings).

    And another thing... my Start Labels are made through the KWGT app.
    I'm still using 950xl as daily, but installed launcher 10 on my V20 and have started playing. First thing that comes up for me is the Navigation bar sucks. Can I duplicate W10M nav bar, double tap to turn off screen and swipe up to hide? How did u get Windows icon in middle of Nav bar? I haven't ponied up cash for paid version yet, but thinking of doing so to increase functionality.

    The navigation bar is a feature of my ROM. AOSP Extended has a feature called the Smart bar, which allows you to change navigation bar actions and icons--so, that is how I made my navbar act and look like a Windows Phone.

    You can also set it to auto hide, and double tap to turn of the screen.

    With one of this Launchers, is it possible to use Cortana as de phone assistant (instead of Google's), use de MS Contacts app for the mobile contactcs, etc?

    I see I'm going to be forced to move to Android when WhatsApp stop their app to Windows Mobile, but I want to feel the change as less as possible.

    Thank you.

    In my experience with my V20, setting Cortana as default assistant messes up the speech to text functionality in that mic is gone. Contacts have been a problem for me as well which is one of the reasons I'm still using W10m. Launcher 10 and square home 3 only show text from notification bar inside tile. There is a picture tile. I think launcher 10 shows contact pics. Email, text, calendar and phone live tiles show some text as well. However, no where near W10m live tile functionality.

    The calander and outlook live tiles almost make a compelling case on their own. Could you get stuff like messenger and whatsapp to do the same (android notification shade is a mare)

    Does launcher 10 support gestures?

    What I've got with microsoft launcher, and blackberry inbox is pretty tide. But I miss direct visual view of my calender.

    Drael,

    No unfortunately only the Calendar app will switch the live tile regardless if you have an appt coming up today or in a couple of days.

    No gesture support that I am aware of. I tried contacting the developer directly but have not received any response. Hopefully he/she is still updating and tweaking Launcher10.

    These apps have working Live Tiles:

    Calendar (Samsung and Google)
    Photo Gallery
    News Apps (MSN; Google; Flipboard)
    Edmodo
    Maps
    ESPN
    Starbucks
    Facebook Messenger
    Outlook Mail
    Contacts

    I haven't been able to get any weather apps' Live Tiles going, but other than that, I'm very happy with Launcher 10!

    Hello,

    The game "Words With Friends 2" live tile functions are very sporadic. Live tiles show nothing but there is a badge count (which most of the time is very inaccurate).

    Hello,

    Anybody got the Facebook App Live Tile working? I remember in Windows 10 mobile, even if you didn't have a notification, the tile will still change between the Facebook icon and your profile picture in Facebook.

    The Microsoft/MSN apps such as news, sports, and weather do not show as live tiles. Anybody got these to work at least? I did enable notifications and permission for the apps to run in the background.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Launcher 10 has been updated a couple of times the past coue weeks. Has anybody figured out how to use the "rounded tile" option on a live tile?

    Thanks,

    I briefly tried this but sadly I just couldn't get on with it. For example I wanted a tile for each of my Outlook accounts and I couldn't figure out how to get that to work. Also, when tapping a tile, it would briefly display the default wallpaper (even when I set the background to a solid colour) which didn't make it feel seamless for me. The layouts here though are very good.

    With microsoft launcher cortana can be your default and it works perfectly fine

    Yes, I use it, it's a good app, when you go to phone and press the people icon you get all your microsoft people contacts and if you add or efit a contact you get an option of which contacts you want to edit, so just click on Microsoft account. Also all Microsoft apps are grouped together for you, it's the same as having a Windows phone again.

    That's from a sideloaded gcam apk. Been using it since day one when I bought the Nokia8.1 in April

    Here's the link.

    I actually use square home now. I use to use the Microsoft launcher but I got tired of how it works n thought there was some weird things going on. So I switched. I've tried other launchers before n I just really like tiles.

    In addition to be the best Windows Mobile like launcher, Square Home is definitely the BEST launcher in the world even better than the original.. And believe me I loved Windows Phone and switching to Android was really a pain ...
    Square home is the first app I will ever install on a phone and the one of few I ever bought.
