Nokia’s Z Launcher for Android
Nokia introduced it;s first ever android app called Z Launcher. The one thing that one has to appreciate is that, with its devices and services business out of the way and its obligations to Microsoft regarding Windows Phone gone, the company wasted no time in embracing Android.
I just downloaded the Z Launcher and used it for few hours. It’s just WOW. The best feature is that it synchronises with the users behaviour and places user’s most popular apps on the home screen and changes based on the time of the day
By the end of its first day of availability, Z Launcher had been downloaded 100,000 times and Nokia had to stop accepting new users.
Nokia is also rolling out several new features to Z Launcher that will debut in the new public beta release:
- Faster Speed: Z Launcher has had small speed advancements in many areas, from the obvious, like optimizing on specific handsets, to the more obscure, like “finger tracking latency.”
- Improved Prediction: The Z Launcher team incorporated more context into the app’s algorithm – including Wi-Fi networks – while intelligently pruning the data to focus on the key elements that give users the best results.
- Refined Scribble: Z launcher now has improved the recognition and response time and an added Pinyin Chinese language support.
- Rooted Device Capability: In response to the feedback they received from users on their forum, they allow installation on rooted devices.
