Here’s a list of 4 Windows 8 launcher apps for Android which you can use to re-create the appearance of Windows 8 and the Windows Phone OS on your Android tablet or smartphone. Despite the hate that people have for Windows 8, lots of people still seem to like it and judging by the number of downloads that Windows 8 launchers have in the Play Store, lots of people would like to see Windows 8 style on their Android-powered phones.
Let’s look at these apps below.
Launcher 8 free (fake wp8)
Launcher 8 is one of those very popular Windows 8 launcher apps, which has more than 10 million downloads.
It looks astonishingly similar to the tiled interface that Windows 8 and Windows Phone OS have, right down to interactive tiles, which can be seen on the image above. Left swipe opens a list of all the installed apps that you have on your device, something similar to what the Windows Phone OS has. From their shortcuts to new apps can be put on the screen as tiles. Lock screen is also changed.
Home8 like Windows 8 launcher
Home8 doesn’t have quite the same design that Launcher 8 has, it’s not as authentic, but you can see that it does have some semblance with the appearance of Windows 8 interface.
Tiles can be live (weather, news feed and the stock market ticker) or they can just be static shortcuts to apps. Left swipe will again open up the list of installed apps. Swipe up and down goes through the list of available tiles. Lock screen changes to a one with quick shortcuts to apps and also quick updates from the live tiles. Note that live tiles for Facebook, Twitter and other social networks require upgrade to the paid version of the app.

Launcher 8 is a much simpler Windows 8 launcher, simpler than Home8. Each tile requires you to tap on it and select which app you want to run with that particular tile.
New tiles can be added and connected to apps that you can then run by tapping on tiles. Tiles themselves are a bit interactive, with folding effects, but you don’t get live weather updates, news updates or anything else like that. Lock screen also isn’t included, so whichever one you used before installing Launcher 8, that’s the one you’ll be using after installing this Windows 8 launcher app. Ads in this app can be a bit intrusive, so use it at your own risk.
