Tech Tuesday: Nokia Z Launcher

Nokia Z Launcher

While I’ve tried quite a few different launchers for my old Asus TF101, the Nokia Z Launcher is only for devices running the Android 4.1 platform, leaving users like me in the dust. However, for thousands of users, the updated app on the google play store is the best early Christmas gift.

Z Launcher, a nifty and intelligent Android launcher that places a user’s most popular apps on the home screen and changes based on the time of the day, was initially released as a pre-beta intended to be made available to 10,000 initial testers.

Here’s how Nokia describes the app’s two key features:

  • Prediction: The app learns a user’s habits to intelligently surface the right apps, contacts and web content on the home screen at the right time when the user needs them.
  • Scribble: With the touch of a fingertip, a user can draw a letter on the home screen to bring up corresponding content that begins with that letter in as fast as one second. http://bgr.com/2014/11/18/nokia-z-launcher-download-release/

From the Nokia website on Z Launcher:

What is the Z Launcher?

Z Launcher is the fastest way to access everything on your phone. Throughout the day, the app dynamically changes your homescreen to present the right apps, contacts and websites based on how you use your phone. The more you use it the better it gets. Our scribble feature ensures you’re always only one-second away from everything.
