Nokia’s Z Launcher leaves beta, now available in the Play Store


Nokia introduced the Z Launcher back in June and it has been testing until today. It is now available in the Play Store for everyone to download. This version comes packed with bug fixes, improvements and other things.

We’ve had a chance to use it. It isn’t your typical launcher. One of its most interesting features is the ability to scribble on the screen. Let’s say you’re looking for the work ‘Nokia.’ You can scribble it first letter which is ‘N’ and a shortcut will appear. Here is the full changelog:

  • Faster – We looked at every possible area where we could make small speed improvements from optimizing on specific handsets to obscure things like “finger tracking latency”.
  • Better Prediction – Without getting too technical…we found ways to bring more context into our algorithm and to hone the algorithm data to just keep the important elements that give users the best results.
  • Refined Scribble – We improved the recognition and response time, (its faster!)
  • We now run on rooted devices! – This was the #1 most requested feature in our forum.

If you have an Android device running Android 4.1 or higher, head to the Play Store and check out the Z Launcher.
