Reviews From google play store

Best looking launcher I've seen for Android. Easy to set up. I find large tiles with uniquely shaped icons more visually appealing and congnitively less strain to use than adaptive icons all of the same shape. The latest update, supporting both orientations, means there is no reason not to buy and use this launcher.


One of the brilliant things about the old windows phones was that the layout was brilliant for showing you all the information you wanted at a glance. I've tried several Android launchers that emulate that experience over the years, and this one is my favorite.


If you want windows phone like tile home screen, this is it. It's just very clean, nice design, many options, doesn't drain battery. Using it for some years now and it is perfect.


Perfect and simple. The only way I can stomach Androids horrible interface. Update 10/25/19 - No longer works after last night's update. 10/26/19 - Another update fixed it. That's fast work!


Love the launcher, best Windows phone launcher on the market(I've tried them all) so much customization and freedom to make it your own while keeping the windows design.


Best Launcher, not only cspable to mimic Windows Phone's Metro Style, but can also be customized as good Android Launcher with so much useful features.


Downloaded it to just try it out, and now it's permanent home launcher.The developer is also quick to respond with enquiries,thank you for the no top padding setting.


Excellent Launcher. Has everything I loved about the Windows Phone user interface.


Absolutely the best. Very easy to use and understand


Awesome in single word ... Add widget at single vertical row ...look outstanding


This app was so cool!! i was doubting it before not untill i downloaded it tested it and it was WHOA!๐Ÿ˜


Great application and easy to use.


In pro version some andriod wegits can't add and shortcut can't add. How to solve this ??


No complaints. Might be better than the original


Excellent app for WP users and former users.


I use this launcher for almost 5 years. Thanks.


Excellent work .... The best launcher I've ever use.... ๐Ÿคณ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘


Beautiful launcher. Works well!


My search for launcher ends here... The perfect one ๐Ÿ‘


great launcher. i have been using square home for 6+ months and only had tiny problems, which are understandable. honestly, i have zero complaints. more than enough options for customization in the free version, and overall a very nice looking launcher. literally the only thing i dont like is the $4.99 price tag for the pro key, because i would really like to use some of the locked features, but i should say, $4.99 is quite a reasonable price for such an awesome launcher.


This is the closest I have seen to emulating the Windows Phone experience. The UI is beautiful and highly configurable. VERY IMPRESSED... except for how it sucks battery. Before with NOVA launcher my phone (Note10+5G) would end up @10pm w/40%, w/o recharge. This launcher? I'm lucky to get 20% by 2pm! Insane! To test, switched back to NOVA-got prior performance again. SO... Love the implementation but I must abandon because of battery issue. DEVELOPER: any suggestions on what to try or on a fix?


I like this launcher. I never had my phone set up looking like a windows phone so it's a breath of fresh air. However, I cant for the life of me figure out how to group apps in the app drawer. Also, the the widgets are severely lacking and forces the user to just use app tiles. For example, both the clock and calendar widgets are very ugly.


I was an early adopter of the Windows Phone (from WP 7). I loved my Window Phones. I loved the UI and the simplicity. Then MS abandoned the platform and I moved to Android (Galaxy S7 edge). I've hated my phone ever since. Then I found this launcher. I hate my phone much less! It's a solid launcher. Well-designed with lots of features. Worth the money I paid. Even though it's the same dumb phone crippled by every update Samsung sends down, I'll be able to live with it... for now.


Great experience so far. I was searching for a good free theme launcher for the past three hours. I had tried seven or eight theme launchers but none were good enough. Then I stumbled upon this unique launcher and I am really amazed by the design, UI, animation, and customization options. That's why I've given it Five stars. Great work.


Incredible & Essential Launcher!!! Can't speak highly enough of this app! Cusomize everything. So easy to use. Doesnt slow phone. Functions just as you'd hope it would and better . Try it!! YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED . Never usually commemt or review but made sure I did with this Launcher. Great work guys THANKYOU!


My group and I have been through our share of launchers, especially lately:). This one is my favorite. It's simple to use yet complex enough that my device is personalized to each of our tastes. The only problem is one of us has had to switch to a different launcher because this didn't support the icons they liked. Also google assistant doesn't function properly with this launcher either.


I love this app, just updated my launch screen after a couple of years (Nokia 6.1). So intuitive, easy to create/customise tiles & move them around. Why is manufacturer UI so cr*p when there are indie developers out there that can do stuff this cool. It's like Windows 10 launcher but so right for a phone.


Loved it , i was looking for a nice launcher without ads ... Then found this one , Great thanks to the developer for creating such a stylish launcher , i really appreciate your work ... Keep it up ... , lastly i want to say that i have not faced any problem , enjoying with this amazing launcher ...- memeet22


Very excellent app, I was a windows phone user up until Microsoft stopped making/supporting them. This is truly excellent work, and I don't think that I would be happy using my android phone without it. After using this UI for several months, I have somehow removed the add app button (the big plus button) on the homescreen..how do I go about getting it back?


THE REAL DEAL. The popular launchers are just glorified themes that feature non-essential customizations (changes to size, color, size etc) without offering a true change in the experience. While the few launchers that do still seem to fully break from the look and feel of an android system. THIS LAUNCHER SUCCEEDS IN BOTH. The change in form and function is remarkable; the new experience is awesome. Install it and prepare to meet your phone for the first time all over again.


Developer worked hard for such a refreshing, simple, clean, fast, full of options and customizations launcher. I was sick of all the classic Android launchers and I said I should try something different, but not so complicated. Now I feel I have a Windows phone which is splendid. Android phones are so "default", "standard" for some long years. We really need something refreshing and this launcher brings some new positive vibes.


I have SO missed my Windows phone and the ease and simplicity of the tiles. It saves so much time and is so much easier to navigate than the tiny icons on both Android and iPhone. I am almost crying tears of joy to have this Windows phone experience again! No more swiping left or right to see all the icons and trying to remember which one is where. I have customized my home screen with everything I want to see, in the order I want to see it. And in different sizes.


Best launcher I've found so far, although I do have a few suggestions: For the photo widget: Allow us to select multiple folders. When I click on the picture widget, go straight to the currently displayed photo. Folders: I can add a folder from the applications list to the home screen, but when I add a new app to the application list folder it does not add it to the folder on the home screen. Please make it so that the two sync. Adding an app to the application folder auto adds to the home screen folder. Applications list: Add swipe to right goes back to home screen. Calendar: I could never get the calendar widget to work, perhaps because I use outlook calendar instead of google?


If you like tweaking the home screen, you will enjoy this. The cube is great for related apps or settings. Lots of options. The "live tile" notifications work great. In fact, I don't miss my windows phone as anymore. Great launcher.


Really like how organized it looks. So much easier locating your apps. Also, i love the way you can 1/2 size the icons in the right just wish i could put them side by side. UPDATE: 7/29-Frustrating trying to unlock apps. Make easier to use. 8/19- still unable to unlock apps so that I can add and delete my apps on home screen. This should not be this difficult. If I don't get resolution I will be deleting. Once this is resolved I will change my rating.


Two weeks in this is the best launcher I have ever used it is extremely smart and intuitive it knows what apps I use and at what time of the day I can take any widget and size it into a tile which makes moving them around a breeze and organization a breeze very customizable great animations and good speed for being a launcher STYLO 4 would probably be even better on a higher performance phone I have not looked away from this launcher since I started using it


I had refused to let go of my windows phone lumia 950xl, i had to bite the bullet because whatapp is not going to be supported any more. I bought an Android phone and installed this app, is GREAT . I get the same or even better functionality with thos app...I will miss my L xl but this app will soften the pain ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜Š


This is by far the best customizable launcher for Android. So many options, so fast, so good looking. It has everything you could wish for in a launcher. And you don't even have to be a Windows Phone fan to enjoy this approach. Live tiles, notifications, dividers, groups, shortcuts, widgets, ... everything is customizable. I enjoy working on my phone even more now. Keep up the good work, I definitely recommend Square Home to all Android users!


Love the app just like winphone. Notifications and flips really cool. Id never go back to stock droid UI. (Needs settings option to auto launch apps directly from groups on the top UI without having to go into the groups first.) (Update: You can though shrink tiles down to small view to move together in a similar fashion, achieve a result).


Everything is great about this launcher, and I'm able to use this app to my liking and was ready to give 5-star rating to your application but didn't rated. The reason why I reduced my rating is whenever (all the time) I unlocked my phone (Oneplus 6t) phone gets unlock but screen remain pitch black and I have to swipe up to view main screen. Kindly look into this particular issue of mine so that I can change my rating instantly.


UPDATED: Sorted the problem with my phone, thanks so much. Have now purchased paid version and have on all my android devices ๐Ÿ˜ Few ideas that would be nice additions. If we had new messaging, phone buttons and gallery to match in with our themes. Also slight issue which think be beneficial an edit for front app on cube and save group apps on tile group. Keep up the great work, it's by far 1 the best ever launches ever used โค


I'm trying to figure out why the photo slide widget isn't working and wondering if it could be simplified( just add certain photos to the slide) as I don't want every photo I've taken with my camera sliding on the homepage, and also I can't get photos downloaded through whatsapp or other outside sources to show on the widget. Other than that everything works perfect. Thanks


Very cool launcher. I love it. Just wish I could figure out how to make a short cut to a webpage as a tile? edit: As per the quick reply by the Dev, I installed a shortcut app to make individual tiles shortcuts to specific web pages as suggested. Added a Star!


I cried with joy and pleasure upon installing this apps and wonder why I never explore this possibilities before! I bought a Lemfo Lem4 Pro watch (China Full-Fledged Android SmartWatch) a few moons ago and loved all the physical matters about the watch, however, I was utterly DISSAPOINTED with the stock launcher and it was harder to use since some of the section of the smart watch was not responsive anymore. I gave up, vowing that I will never buy a Chinese Android SmarWatch ever again. The watch has been sitting in the display case for nearly three months while I weighed the pros and cons of selling the watch but this apps save the day and me in particular! After installing the apps, the watch seems to work efficiently with tons of customization (which I preferred) were carried out and implemented to my heart content. Not even the stock launcher were able to do what Square Home can do. Thank you! No doubt I am going for the paid version now...Keep up the good work and we look forward for more features that will make a smartwatch to a SUPER SMARTWATCH! NOTE : Expect everything new and totally different functions and features on a smartwatch as well as on the phone!


I have so so so missed my win phone and always wish to see it on my phone again. Now this theme is the exactly one I was looking for and sure I paid for its key and I am really happy of doing this. Everything is real and my Android phone has a real win phone feeling. I can adjust the tile style as well as I did for my Lumia 950XL. Tile are alive as they were on my win phone. Also it works so fast and no problem for my phone speed. Thanks for this theme developer.


I've been using the same launcher for the longest time and this launcher is the most unique and see how amazing other launchers can be. I honestly think that this launcher would make your smartphone so unique that other users might think that you're using an advanced smartphone. But because it's hard to tell whether an icon pack is compatible or not, I can only give 4 stars.


I would give 5-star if it would be possible to to make the GMAIL-widget working cause it just flashes the the screen after I select the corresponding folder and the widget "stuck" at "tap to setup" or in the best case scenario "loading..." or if managed to setup 'correctly' the (un)read states of the emails won't update corrently. PS: latest Square Home (paid) & GMAIL on Huawei Mediapad 5 with Android/EMUI 8.


See it to believe it, I did Update: As I keep playing with it I keep falling in love with it. I cant believe this is available for your phone. My Note 9 now looks amazing, I wish I could give gold stars. *does take some time to learn all the shortcuts and how to set up.


Edit: changed to 5 stars. Saw another's post about the App drawer and not being able to see icon names. You must go to Hope Options ~ App Drawer~ then select "sort order" ~ "name" Love this Launcher. I've tried a few different ones. Seriously though, app icons need to have names. It's extremely tedious trying to locate a specific app


I always liked the windows format this app is the balls you control the size of the squares and the best part is you can lock them in place no more losing icons and shifting them around accidentally no ads or pop ups or live screens eating up precious battery life launchers dont get better than this as fas as I'm concerned and I tried them all.


A rather decent launcher. The windows 8 style start menu is a horrible idea for a pc, but a perfect solution for a phone. Makes the main screen easy to see even at brighter places when the sun is up. I recommend this launcher instead of the rest, cause it has a ton of customisations. Recommended iconpack: voxel flat style icon pack. Only 4/5 cause if you use full images, the notification has to be animated, and looks amateur, so ive disabled that.


Really good Windows Mobile-style launcher. Tons of customization. Would be great if dev added: 1) A way to set long-clicking a widget bring up the regular pop-up menu of the widget's app, 2) Be able to adjust the size of the squares in All Apps and Contacts (independently of the home pages), 3) Add "Recently installed" to the top of All Apps, 4) Polish the All Apps and Contacts screens (the hold-finger-down-and-scroll method to jump to letters seems a little rough and unfinished)


I love it! But.. it caused my Samsung to lag and go slow and it got progressively worse to the point I had to uninstall the launcher. Which fixed the problems on my tablet.


By far the best launcher ive used, color coded tile cubes to seperate certain apps, google apps red cube, finance-green cube, social media yellow, etc etc. Phone and messages i keep as icons, and the rest are simple 2 clicks, and that only takes half the home screen, the rest i keep for photo slide makes for a gorgeous home page with every app easy to find and at most 2 taps away.


Best launcher I've used in awhile. I've used Windows launcher, Nova Launcher, Evie Launcher and many more. And this launcher has given me the best when it comes to customizing with the squares and added with the icons..it's amazing! When I get the cash I'll be buying the 5 dollar launcher. Cause seriously..totally worth it!!


My favorite launcher. Its the most unique i've come across. Keeps my home clean. Some animations can slow it down and some features i would change. I really like how much can be customized. Works great. Great app. Great work.


This is the first launcher that stayed for more than 5 months in my mobile and still going on. Highly recommended for people who love colors and customization. 5 star candidate for sure.


This is exactly what I've been missing since Windows Phone was discontinued. I love the tiles but I have the power of Android too. Awesome! Works like a charm on Nokia 6.1


Best home screen EVER! Puts default Android home screen to shame, and don't even get me started on iOS. This makes iOS look like it was developed in the stone age. Made my transition from Win10 Mobile much easier.


This is pretty well done. It's like an updated version of windows phone ui. Lots of customizing to get things how you want which is good but also annoying with so many options. But it's not a bad thing just tedious.


This is the best launcher ive used until now. It's minimal but gives you all the options not to be. You can customise almost everything. 5 stars.. the full version a bit pricy but might buy it.


Got used to Huawei's Simple Mode on my old phone, but then it broke. Bought a Samsung to replace it, although I hated all the unnecessary clutter of its default interface. This app does the job and even better; it offers immense customisation. Deserves all the praise it gets.


I am using your launcher for my main android box TV setup, along with KWLP and it is working great. Thanks soo much for such a customizable launcher. The only issue I have is that when I use the remote to highlight the tiles, it is very hard to see which tile is actually highlighted. I have tried numerous different tactics and still the highlighted tile is too dim. I tried looking for an app that could do this, but to no avail. Could you please recommend a solution? Is there any? Thanks


I absolutely love Square Home! After getting a new phone (Moto e5 plus) and installing it, the app seemed so glitchy it was almost impossible to use, which was very upsetting considering I've been using this app for so long and love it so much. However, after leaving it alone for a bit and returning to the app to try again it worked like a charm! Square Home is easy to use and there a TON of different customization options. You can do just about anything you want with this app!


The best windows-like launcher ever! It has really rich services, NO ADS even in a basic version. So I tottally enjoy it and I'm going to buy it when I have money. Great job! I hope you continue to develop this amazing product.


Had app for a while and that's the simplicity of it you don't realize how sweet it is just doing its job. Don't get me wrong it has a lot more to offer but being lazy I got as far as I needed. Now while my screen doesn't look exactly like the examples above but it works . . . well . . . FANTASTIC! IF YOU'RE LIKE ME . . . and I hope you're not . . . just get this app and the upgrade key and do not monkey around with those other GOOGLE PLAY STORE CHARLATANS. Now I can't say how many times I've been duped into downloading other apps even purchasing some that quite plainly are pieces of s*** but trust me this ain't one.


Does wat it's supposed to do. Customizable, good-looking interface. No annoying ads. The only thing I woukd add is the ability to control transparency of the tile backgrounds on the home screen.


So far I've been using this launcher on my OnePlus 6T for bout a week, and so far it's been working very good with no issue. You can customize it the way you like and the squares look really nice. It also it gives my one plus 6T a nice look.


#1. ๐Ÿค” App could use more features like more live tiles features, more widgets and more customization updates to UI and a battery optimization widget for launcher that consumes less battery life and battery saving mode !


This application delivers a much better experience than the original WP UI!!! Yes, of course, at first it may seem a bit complicated and cumbersome to handle, but before long, things get crystal clear. As so many others have already pointed out, you get the best of both worlds, Android and WP. Dear developer, you are the man! Bravo, bravo, bravo! PS: I would suggest that developper records a short YouTube video tutorial. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand (written) words!


Did you love Nokia Lumia UI experience? Where you not able to find the UI experience in Android? You have found the right application. Go for it. But work with the customisation.


I've been rocking windows phone style launchers for a couple years, and they've always felt incomplete. Pretty, sure, but their functionality felt like an afterthought. Not so with this one. It's well built, has noble features that weren't on the windows phone OS it's smooth. Overall it just feels like whoever made this really cares. Only thing I don't like is the fact that you have to add 'blank' tiles or dividers, or else everything auto shuffles up as far as it can


As of writing this review there is no Windows 10 themed launcher that is as nice and customizable as this launcher in the Play Store. Been using it for several years now. I recommend it every chance I get.


When screen lock feature activated, I have to input PIN/pattern/password to enter my home screen even I've input me fingerprint. Can U tell me how to enter my home screen menu using fingerprints and skip the PIN/pattern/password phase? Your launcher is awesome. I'll raise the 3โญ to 5 if that problem solved ๐Ÿ˜


I really love the convenience this launcher brings to the table. All my most used apps in one place without looking crowded. I haven't had hardly any problems out of this laucher. I recommend it to anyone just wanting that new phone feeling without the upgrade in cost!


I miss the Windows Phone interface terribly. While this is is not quite the same, it does an admirable job providing my favorite features of said interface.


Great app. luv the live tiles like the old windows metro tiles that show realtime number of eg new emails, messages etc. The event calendar widget is great where you can see whats coming up in the week on a live tile. recommend this.


Just installed the app, have used many premium and i find this very easy to customize and doesn't stop running like others. Am certainly buying your key. Cheers!!!


Though the concept if trial features annoys me (I've used none of them). The launcher itself is pleasant, though setting up wallpapers isn't the most intuitive. That said, I do enjoy cubes of icon.


Great app! I've been using this app for at least a year now and have been very satisfied. I have seen alot of improvementa that have made it even better since I first installed it. One suggestion, which may just be me, would be to have an option to change the icon or tile image based on how it is clicked, and allow the user to select this. I would like to be able to have toggle icons show an 'on' 'off' effect when clicked.


This lancher is simply amazing! First, it is stable. I had zero crashes during my use and it works perfectly fluid without any lag or stutter. Surprisingly its very efficient, it doesn't drain your battery like some other launchers I had used in the past, very nice. And of course its customisation, easly one of the most customizable launchers out there, I didnt wish for more features because there is too much and thats just awesome. I would surely recommend this launcher for anyone.


Excellent launcher!!!!! Highly customizable giving a unique look to your device, if you know how to play around with it. Worth every single penny. Keep it going, Guys! Thank you


I've been using this app for more than a year now and I really like it. I came from a Windows phone user so this app really replicates what I've missed on the Windows phone. I really like the tiles layout, especially the scroll up and down. There are some features that this app doesn't have that other Metro style has such as swipe to left for calendars, news, etc, similar to iPhones, without charge. This app could be better if they have the left and right swipe features as well without fee.


Great launcher, however for some reason it's not letting me enable notifications. Whenever I try to enable it, it takes me to the settings page and asks me to enable notification access, which was already on. Once I try turning it off and on again, it still doesn't let me toggle it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it multiple times, and nothing worked so far. If you could help me out that'd be great.


I bought it - it does a nice job with the Metro design theme - but - eventually uninstalled it. I got really tired of the dreadfully slow performance, maddening crashes, and less than ideal compatibility with Android Auto. Replaced it with Evie launcher - fast, predictable performance. I don't miss it at all.


Good, very much like the windows phone screen. Wish I could get rid of the popup screen that shows often. I understand the need....but still. Very good.


Great launcher! Perfectly captures the spirit of the old Windows Mobile screen, which I think was underrated and should have done better. Works smoothly and plenty of customisation. It's a bit fiddly to set up, and I prefer using the stock android apps rather than the launcher's alternative functions, but once it's up and running, it's more interesting than a standard android launcher!


It was nice for first 5 minutes now my screen has blacked out all the icons are gone it's was hard for me to get them back... But now the home screen has a big black strip above the chin.


Thank You for Giving this Wonderful Application To Everybody. Thank You Again and Again. Love You ๐Ÿ™‚. And One Feedback to You. When scrolling a Tile towards Up. The Speed is very slow of the Tile. Please Fix it.


I think this launcher is the best out there. 5 out of 5 for sure. Is there a way that I can change the colour of the notification when it flashes or if not is that a possible thing you could do in an update in the future? Either way I would give you 5 stars anyway cause it really is the best. Thanks .


This is the easiest and best launcher you could ever imagine. it allows you to place whatever you want on your favorites and organize them how you want it gives you a good calendar with reminder in clock on the front. it is very simple and I would say the best launcher that I have found I am so happy to use this. it also has an application drawer where all of your apps are listed in alphabetical order making them easy to find an easy to use. A++


Far superior to the Android interface, with its awkward cut-off circles that make grouped apps hard to identify. Google should wise up and go square. R.I.P. Windows Phone, victim of anti-MS attitudes more than true inherent flaws. For what it is, I can't think of any better way to implement this app, except maybe to allow drag & drop into tile groups without expanding them first (if it's not in one of the many options somewhere). I rarely give 5-star reviews.


Great Thought. But fails when you attempt to get actual fancy with it. Full face icons (image is icon) are impossible as a whole. You have to full image each individual icon. Even if your icon pack is square. Should take 1 option to change them all to that style. Has potential but feels like your getting more functionality than you really are.


STANDING OVATION for the app developers (ChYK). What you have here is exactly what the reviewer Gio Tavanlar (below) has described (he fails to call it what it is, the Windows Phone experience. Amazing. How do I send you more $ than what this app costs?


It's a little clunky trying to customize the screen, but once everything is in place it's super nice to use.


I'm using this launcher on my Nvidia Shield and it's the best launcher I've tried so far. It has a lot of customization options and it works very well with the remote too. Android widgets don't work on Android TV OS, which is a shame, but fortunately I'm using 'full' Android, so everything works great. I love it.


I reluctantly migrated from my 950 to an Android phone. I loved the windows UI. This app (paid for ) isn,t a 100% the same, but I would honestly say that after half an hour playing in the settings I got it to 95%. Its a very good replacement and worth every penny to help the enevitable migration painless.


Hands down the best windows phone launcher! It has many options beautiful and simple design, and it works very smooth across the entire ui . Throw in a metro icon pack and you have the perfect wp !


This is an outstanding launcher, I have only run into a few very minor bugs, the design is very well thought out. It ranks up there with Nova launcher.


Best app ever!!!! If (like me) you loved the simplicity and convenience of the Windows Phone live tile interface but hated the ridiculous lack of decent apps and looked at the Play Store with envy, then this is definitely for you. Superb app that gives you more customisation than you need with no drawbacks (so far). Highly recommended!
