The rapprochement between Nokia and Android looked very interesting since it came to light the first leaks of the Nokia X, although the movement seemed a bit odd especially since it had been bought by Microsoft and it is normal that the industry should focus on Windows Phone. However, Microsoft bought what was the business of the devices and services, and given the size of Nokia, several departments were left out. One is that for years has developed software and other functions for your device and now released its first App for android: Z Launcher.

As you can guess by its name, Z Launcher is a launcher for the new Google system that performs the same task as other known (as Apex, Nova, Go and others), can radically change the phone interface. We are used to see dozens of customization options in each launcher, but Z Launcher is the opposite: simple, clean and, say, different.



What you see in the pictures is all that is shown. At the top we display the time, date and the next event in our agendas, and can click on each item to enter its corresponding App. At the bottom there are five direct hits to choose from, as in most launchers, but where it really is different Z hits Launcher is occupying most of the screen.

Z Launcher learns and shows you what you need at all times

This list of 6 items is not fixed, but that varies during the day according to the Apps more we open, the more contacts you call or visit us more. Z learns Launcher as your use and therefore will adapt to how you use the phone to show some suggestions or other at the right time. Know what the Apps you use at work are not the same as Saturday night, nor you need when you are having breakfast.

Okay, so you wonder, where are the other apps I have installed are? As there is no use application drawer, Z Launcher has a feature called "Scribble" which allows access to any application by typing the first letter of his name anywhere on the screen. For example, if you go to Facebook, simply make a finger F and a list of apps, contacts and websites that correspond with that letter appears.

If you have many apps whose names begin with F, Z Launcher applies the same system always gives preference to those that use the most. It works exactly like if instead of opening an app, you need to call someone or do an internet search.



Definitely a different system, but given the amount of existing launchers on Google Play is also necessary to differentiate a little. Currently Z Launcher is Pre Beta phase, so it may have some flaws and can only be downloaded from their website, you'll see how these developers will create Nokia Apps for Android, but it's a good start. Have you tried it? What do you think?.
