Ad-free version of Launcher 7.

The Winphone 7 lookalike launcher, almost like the real thing and in some ways even better!

Version 1.0.1.24 notification: if you find rendering error, email me with screenshot and I will try to fix the issue ASAP.

Features:
- 1x1, 2x1 and 1x2 tiles with configurable colors
- Widgets in a tile! (provided that widget fits)
- Almost real like tile animation
- Almost real like tile re-arrange mode
- Almost real like status bar
- Animated contacts tile (supports G+ synced contacts)
- Pinnable contact-tile which animates like the real phone
- Folder tiles
- Webpage tiles
- Filterable application list
- Stock wp7-like colors and color selection

FAQ:
- Initial setup may be broken depending on your phone manufacturer, you probably need to replace the tiles
- To add new application to main screen, long press on an application in application drawer and select "pin to home screen"
- Filtered apps can be restored from the launcher settings fitered apps page
- Tiles can be made transparent by adjusting the alpha value from the horizontal bar on the color selector
- All bitmaps must fit inside 48 megabyte heap (high-end phones, lower-end phones even less than that), so don't try to use too many 25 megabyte bitmaps on your tiles or you will see FC.
- Gmail tile will not work anymore, use Mail tile instead
- By default WP7 statusbar shows icons only if you touch it. You can adjust the functionality from statusbar options
- "Smaller tiles" will make 1x1 tile to 172x172 pixels in HDPI resolution. I managed to measure the tiles wrong when I started developing L7 and tiles have been too big ever since. 172x172 tiles seem to be faster too, so I suggest you to try them!

TODO-list:
- folder of contacts tile
- revamp the application icon addition (allow text color selection etc)
- App integration (Twitter, Facebook etc.)
- two-sided tiles
- cropping tool to make custom bitmap selection easier

Changelog

Version 1.1.4
- rotating tiles have made an epic return
- orientation lock on the first page will enable / disable real landscape mode, the rotating tiles is back in animation options and will have function ONLY and ONLY if you lock the orientation to portrait
- sluggish ICS scrolling fixed [really, this time I actually activated the APK ]
- fixed issue where async loader no longer delivered new contact images to contact tiles
- fixed issue where multiple contact tiles wasted extra memory

Version 1.1
- landscape mode added, landscape mode has its own set of tiles
- rotating tiles are gone
- new initial configuration, should popup if homescreen is empty, but can be accessed from settings too
- and lots of other adjustments

Version 1.0.1.26
- popular crashes fixed
- it is now possible to specify text color for most of the tiles

Versions 1.0.1.24-25
- .24.1: few fixes added
- major change: tile size is now determined from your screen resolution
- MDPI devices should experience better performance as tiles are now correct size instead of downscaled HDPI tiles
- qHD and HD devices should now draw screen correctly
- ICS support (also runs in HC now)
- Smaller/faster 172 pixel tiles now available. I measured the tile sizes wrong initially, 172 is the correct value, 184 is too big. Changing tile size requires launcher restart.
