The core application itself hasn’t changed much, there are still some minor performance issues when you press the Windows key rapidly. A welcome addition would be the search feature, you now have live search implemented right into the search bar, but still takes a while to show you the search result.

You also have the option to customize your user profile image.

Again, this is still in beta. No word if this will become a paid app once it comes out of beta, but for now, this is one of the closest Windows start menu replacement out there. Give it a try if you are on Windows 8 and would like to have your Windows 7 start menu back !
