Smartphone App: Nougat Launcher app released to Tizen Store

A new Launcher app has been released to Tizen Store, created by app developer Slawomir Musial, named Nougat Launcher. As everyone is aware, Google is in the process of releasing Nougat 7.x version of Android OS and this happens to be a Nougat Launcher for Tizen smartphones such as the Samsung Z1, Z2 and Z3.

To get some Nougat flavour on your Tizen mobile all you need to do is Install the app from the Tizen store, and then after launch, you will see 6 most used apps on the home screen: Call, Messages, email, Tizen Store, Interest and Calendar. You can also see other apps by tapping on menu icon. At the htop of the app drawer, there is a search bar that can be used to quickly search for your desired apps. Press the Left Soft Key (LSK) to see the Phone option button for recent apps. A Google search bar available on the home screen on left top corner and date and time shown on right top corner. Note that you can’t actually add any app to the home screen.

Enjoy the Tizen OS phones first home screen launcher. Hope the developers will also provide many more later on. But, this is not any home screen launcher, it’s an app launcher. After you close the app the launcher will also close.

This launcher is available now for all Tizen-powered smartphones. Download it from Tizen store with a download size of 4MB.
The app does contain some bugs:-

  • A camera icon will not appear on app drawer.
  • Must need to set default theme or icons after start this app.
  • You will see the recent apps but will not close the apps.
