Pimp my phone: 10 cool new Android launchers, wallpapers and interface tools for November

Pimp my phone: 10 cool new Android launchers, wallpapers and interface tools for November
We took a glimpse at what's new and cool at the Play Store in the interface draping department for the month that passed, and noticed a few launchers and interface tools that you might find useful, or at least funky to try out. First in line are the Android Lollipop and iOS 8-style launchers, of course, as the newest editions of Google's and Apple's mobile operating systems are the hot topics in the software departments at the moment.

There are also a few novel takes on improving on your stock device interface, like adding custom toggles in the notification bar, as well as an influx of small, lightweight launchers with tiny footprint that won't be as much of a drain on your phone's resources as the big boys, making them suitable for lower-end devices, so check them out if you got one of those.

I've got it too, but it's in dire need of a visual overhaul.

I don't know if it has been done yet, but you guys need to do a custom rom comparison between some of the major names. It might be a bit pointless since not all roms are available for all devices, but the majors should make it just enough for the article.

But does any of these launchers let you have customisable icon order. All ive seen in any launcher is alphabet, recent or last installed etc.. So I use TW purely for customisable order
