Asus ZenUI now working with non-Asus handsets

Asus ZenUI custom Android launcher now available on non-Asus handsets
Asus ZenUI
From now on, virtually any handset running Android 4.3 or later can use the launcher previously available only on Asus devices.

Many Android users do not enjoy the looks and capabilities of the default launcher, and so they end up installing a third-party app to take care of this problem. Unfortunately, some custom Android launchers are tied to the devices of a certain manufacturer, for example Samsung's TouchWiz, HTC's Sense, or Asus' ZenUI. The good part is that ZenUI has just become the first such app to become available for any Android handset.

According to 9to5Google, "The ZenUI Launcher found on the ASUS ZenFone now installs on all devices running 4.3 and above." The launcher focuses on themes, customization capabilities, as well as a few smart features. It features both an iOS-style one-layer mode with all apps located on the home screen, as well as a two-layer mode with an app drawer traditionally used by Android. Asus ZenUI also features automatic app grouping, swipe down to search apps/contacts/trending topics, and more.

This launcher offers many features and comes for free, working with any handset that runs at least Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
