Z Launcher: This really good Android launcher from Nokia shows what could have been


If you’re constantly cycling through an endless loop of homescreens just to look for one app that you can’t seem to find on your phone then you might want to give the Z Launcher a try. It’s an amazingly simple to use launcher that makes it super easy to find the almost anything on your device.

Z Launcher lets you write out letters right on the screen without using a keyboard and the app gives you a running list of apps, contacts and other content that you would typically use. The suggestion changes based on where you are and what you’re doing. It’s deceptively simple and intuitive to use, and with a self learning feature the suggestions presented by the app gets better the more you use it.

We’ve installed the app in our devices and while some may argue that other launchers can do more, we don’t think there’s anything out there that is as easy to use. It’s amazing that Nokia can come up with when the company is let off its leash, it’s sad though that, for the most part, Nokia is stuck with Microsoft.

The Z Launcher is available on limited pr-beta release here. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
