Review Launcher 8 free (fake wp8)

Lots of settings, functions quickly, stylish design
No weather widget, some hidden ads
Launcher 8 (fake wp8) for Android makes your Android look like a Windows Phone. Having lived through the traumatizing and painful experience of Windows 8 on PCs, I had prepared myself for the worst. But in fact, the live tile interface really works very well on mobile touchscreen devices.
Just like Windows Phone, Launcher 8 makes use of the full extent of screen space. Launcher 8 comes with a bunch of custom widgets, emulating those on Windows Phone 8. It's both handy and refreshing to have some visual information right there on your homescreen; such as your latest photos, people in your contacts, etc. Many of your existing Android widgets can also be added to the homescreen, include Gmail, Calendar and Facebook statuses.
Launcher 8 supports vertical and horizontal viewing, giving it the edge over my default launcher. It can be customised endlessly, choosing any color for tiles, transparencies, wallpaper etc. Or you can just download one of the themes other people have shared online, including Spiderman 2 and Minions! If you are particularly creative you can share your own theme too. Launcher 8 also comes with its own lockscreen with an optional numeric password and "smart unlock" where your phone unlocks automatically when the screen turns on and its not in your pocket.
Of course your phone will still be Android under the bonnet, which can make moving between the launcher and apps or settings feel a little odd. Launcher 8 is lacking a live weather widget at present, at least in the free version. A few of the on screen tiles will direct you to download other apps (hidden advertising). Other than that, I'm really impressed. If you're curious about Windows Phone, or want a brand new look for your Droid, Launcher 8 is certainly worth your time.

If this launcher is free so why it's showing "Buy notification" again and again on home scree?
