Nokia Z Launcher – Throughout the day, the app dynamically changes your homes creen to present the right apps, contacts and websites based on how you use your phone
The app is currently in beta testing, available in Google Play in select countries (US, EU, India). Z Launcher should work on most Android smartphones running Android 4.1 or higher.
Z Launcher has not been designed or optimized to work on Microsoft’s discontinued “Nokia X” Android devices. As for tablets, the Z Launcher tablet-optimized experience is available exclusively on the Nokia N1 Tablet.
- Scribble – Scribble a letter to find what you want
- Launch – Apps, contacts, or websites
- Adapt – It learns to promote the right stuff at the right time
The hidden and best feature of Nokia Z Launcher is ” Gesture Control “. Trace a letter on the homescreen and it’ll show you apps, web links and contacts beginning with that letter. Trace another letter and it’ll narrow down the selection even more. If you make a mistake, a swipe to the left will erase the last letter. It’s pretty accurate and actually pretty snappy to use.
