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.
please HMD please continue developing the Z launcher from nokia team. I use it in my nokia 8 2017 with androdid oreo 8.1 and works like a charm.
what the version z-launcher are u guys using now?
according to google play its last version is 1.3.8-beta
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.
