Metro UI on your Android phoneIf there’s one thing a lot of people agree with about Windows Phone 7, it’s that Microsoft definitely got the design right. To date, there’s quite a number of Metro UI-inspired or copycat themes for non-WP7 phones on the market, and Launcher7 is the latest one to join the scene. Designed for Android phones, this Android launcher was designed to mimic the Metro UI of WP7 and from what we can see so far, it’s doing a pretty good job. In addition to making your Android device look like it was running WP7, it supports regular Android widgets, and it even has its own implementation of “Live Tiles”. It’s only in alpha at the moment, so you can expect not everything to work perfectly, but it’s available for free (though if you can’t stand the ads, a paid version is available) on the Android Market. Give it a spin and let us know what you think about it.
