Nokia has released a sensible ‘Z Launcher’ for Android smartphones, which features a simple interface and make everything easy to find. It learns what apps, contacts and website you use frequently and put them on the homescreen for quick access. These will change as you using your phone and depending on your location. In addition, you can find anything by just drawing letters on the homescreen.
This pre-beta version of Nokia Z Launcher currently supports only few high-end phones such as Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S5 & S4, Moto X, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z1, etc. Also, it may not work properly on rooted phones.
I have tested this launcher replacement on my Moto X. Though not much customization options are available, the performance is not bad. It is fast and very convenient to find things on my phone.
