How should look beautiful “launcher”? To begin with, the notion of “beautiful shell”, each user treats differently. But if you combine all the views you can get this – it should be of high quality sound and a smooth animation.
For the new survey was selected a couple of the best representatives of this class: Buzz Launcher and NeXt Launcher 3D.
Beautiful and free: Buzz Launcher
Despite the fact that Buzz Launcher is the first project of Buzz Team, the shell was really good. It is full of features, beautiful and, most importantly, free.
Immediately after run the application we propose to choose the style of shell, the so-called «homepack». If the
After selecting the appropriate package is its downloaded and installed in the automatic mode, the benefit of the responsibility for the choice of style is up to the user.
Slogan Buzz Team – «Add” YOU “to your Smartpone »(« Add yourself to your smart phone “). Now we understand why this phrase is true.
Here is the” standard “menu Buzz. Agree, very similar to the standard interface system Android. Is that the other icons.
But with «homepack» Modern Tiles smartphone, without exaggeration, it is unique. In this case, appear on the desktop shortcuts huge cells, beautiful background and a variety of widgets, add-ons. “The status bar” hides desktop interface becomes more monolithic.
The package consists of multiple desktops and immediately after the installation is ready for everyday use.
unusually looks and Rabbit Theme. When you look at it, even the advanced user interface is unlikely to determine the name of the installed “launcher”. Especially icons, watches and other items look outside the box.
Other themes, of which a great many, represent different themes and styles. Proposals have for every taste and color, so the phrase about individuality interface gadget completely valid.
If we find fault, then the only disadvantage of this solution is that when you change the independent threads so we do not get a great view. Therefore it is better to use already prepared packages. If necessary, you can just use a few topics on different desktops.
Download «homepack» comes from its own application store. Absolutely all threads are free, that can be noted only positive.
Themes themes, but it’s time to go back to the standard interface and its detailed analysis. It was originally presented in the form of three desktops. Flexible user desktop grid, under a “dock bar”, and the top couple of widgets.
The structure of the widget in the upper part, includes a clock face, date and battery level. A “docking panel” means it is not, is presented in the form of three labels: “dialer”, the message manager and menu applications.
It is interesting to look icons. They are round, but not all, but only those for which there is a corresponding cover. This design is very similar to Buzz Launcher operating system Samsung – Tizen OS.
On the desktop, you can place shortcuts, widgets and folders . Everything is standard here. The mesh can be any application, up to twelve labels in width and height. An exceptional moment – labels, as well as widgets, can change its scale, which is unusual.
When flipping desks, you can notice the quality animation. She’s beautiful and smooth. Provides ten types of animations, among which are the gorgeous “Crystal.”
In general, from the desktop we’re done. Now go to the menu applications. It looks pretty standard, especially after the “home packs.” By the way, on the menu with the applications threads do not affect in any way, change the background only.
At the top of the tab is the “Applications” and ” Widgets. ” There is a search by application, a quick transition to the settings and a summary of our Buzz Launcher and recent / frequently used applications.
In the center are desktops with applications that habitually . There are flexible mesh placement of icons, the maximum size of its previously stated. You can adjust the transparency of the background image.
But the most important thing – the folder. In Buzz Launcher menu with applications, too, can create folders.
At the bottom of the icon is placed Buzz, which opens us to the world «homepack `s’, page indicator, and search. In contrast to the same NeXt Launcher 3D, here, the search is among the installed applications, and in the phone book, and in Gmail, Google play, and even on the Internet. This is certainly good, but that’s why duplicate search applications, or why make a separate search applications !? Currently I do not understand.
And all was forgiven for this shell, but not the lack of landscape mode. If you turn the gadget, then nothing will happen. Yes, and in the settings of the corresponding function is not present, it is insulting and only.
Settings in Buzz Launcher little, but all the items Russified and categorized.
We will start with the first and the main thing – desktop settings. You can select the wallpaper, lock screen, to hide the “status bar”, “docking panel” or add page indicator.
In addition, you can adjust the grid density of the desktop and the offsets from the edges of the screen. Well, of course, choose the turning effect.
Settings organizer applications, you can adjust all the items that is in the application menu. More precisely, the item we just throws on the menu.
Do not forget about the gesture support, it is almost all shells, and it was good. There are even two-finger gestures, and this function is available in the free version of the application (running forward – paid version of the shell is completely absent). Any gesture can be assigned on / off functions of the shell and launch applications. It’s all conservative.
After complete setup “launcher” you should back up All of our plants. But why have this function at the beginning of the settings? After all, this function will not use every day.
unread messages, missed calls and letters are graphically indicated by the appropriate figure in the corresponding icon. A useful feature, but it is in almost every shell.
Smart App-to-Icon allows you to replace one application other after installing a new theme. Function, basically, useless.
In the advanced settings as usual: the installation shell default, the retention of memory and other shareware extras.
Buzz Launcher works smartly and smoothly. Apparent slowdown and complaints about the operation of the program, not even the most beautiful animation plays without lag. Thus the shell consumes about 90 MB of RAM, and also requires the presence of an operating system Android 2.2 and newer.
Conclusions Buzz Launcher
Buzz Launcher turned out not quite unambiguous. On the one hand, it highlights the many beautiful and bright in the use of which the shell becomes chic and unusual. He is not deprived of form and function, there is a search, the search for the right, the ability to create folders on the menu and many other functions. On the other hand, some unrealized potentialities illogical, and support for landscape mode and not at all. But the application is running smoothly, there is not the slightest criticism.
Buzz Launcher – this is one of the best “launcher”, he is the best among the free and able to compete even with pay. And if the developers have eliminated the above drawbacks, but in another way, and you can not call them, would have been a bomb. Besides, he does not have advertising, domestic payments and other tricks on pumping money.
