Since the launch of windows 8, it has created much buzz in the minds of Smartphones aficionados  to try out the "Tile feature" which is rather too cool. But Android users don't want to simply jump on other mobile operating to try Tile. Knowing about the control we have over our Android Phone we don't have any bounds to restrict ourselves here.

Recently, one of the XDA Senior member rob43 has brought a gift for those who want to experience the windows 8 alike Tile feature. He has named it "Tile Launcher" which provide android users to experience windows like Tile Feature while keeping their platform sticked to Android. Cool huh, let us find about how to get it in few and easy way we provide you here.

Before proceeding we would like to mention that rob43 has made this Tile experience smooth for Android users but there are some portions which still need to be updated and some bugs that still exists. But overall its pretty decent to try out on your android phone. It is a Beta release, please keep that in mind! :)

Tile Launcher is available for 4.0+ Android users and it provides you to customize your android home screen with tiles on a horizontal canvas. Some of the features include with the Tile Launcher includes:-
