Nougat Launcher hits Tizen Store

Nougat Launcher app hits Tizen smartphones
Nougat Launcher
The Nougat experience is now available to Tizen smartphones, although it comes from an independent app developer shaped as a basic app that simply launches other apps and then shuts down.

Tizen smartphones have been around for a while, but the software options their users have access to are rather limited, especially when it comes to customizing the user interface. Nougat Launcher comes to spice up things a bit, although it is still far from being able to provide an experience similar to that of a Nougat launcher/home screen app.

Samsung Z1, Z2, and Z3 owners can grab Nougat Launcher from Tizen Store for free. This app comes with a Google-focused theme that looks similar to some of the Marshmallow themes available in Samsung's Theme Store or preinstalled on various Android handsets. This app integrates a colored G at the top left, similar to the Pixel Launcher recently introduced by Google.

Since Nougat Launcher is not a home screen app, the custom look of the main screen only remains around as long as the app is open. Once one of the apps added to Nougat Launcher is being accessed, the launcher itself shuts down. However, since it only has 4 MB in size, it might be worth trying, at least.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
