Z Launcher

Although I like HMD's pure Android ethos, I love to see continued development of Nokia's Z Launcher. To me, it is by far the most intuitive and uncluttered launcher out there. So I thought, maybe HMD could take over the development and have it as an option for people who want it. Just an idea.

 I agree, like I've said elsewhere.

The website appears to have been recently updated (has a new certificate, no longer expired) and it's now possible to download Z-launcher direct, without using Google Play - nice move Nokia!


It's still in beta on Google Play though, no update since April last year. Oddly Z-launcher has its own feedback forum, it's not part of the new Nokia Beta Labs.This suggests that Nokia Technologies are still developing it, not HMD.

the Z launcher available for download (compatible with previous versions of android from Lollipop 5.0 to Oreo 8.1.1) is version 1.3.8-Beta. Also I can tell you that the version in my Nokia N1 tablet is 1.2.20-Beta. Both work seamlessly in Android. Let me know any questions

From what I've read the way Android P apps drawer will work is very similar to Z Launcher, only the GUI is different.
