Create an Interesting Home Screen with Buzz Launcher

Altering your home screen has been made simpler thanks to the work of XDA Forum Member Buzz Plan. Buzz Launcher, which is only available for phones with Android 4.0.1 or greater, allows users to quickly download, apply, and share home screens. The application also makes it possible to create your own home screen using features such as Multi-Wallpapers and My Icons. 

The Buzz Custom Widget add-on gives users access to clock, date, and battery widgets to include in their own personalized home screens. If the stock look of the widgets doesn’t leave you satisfied, you can modify them to look any way you want. Home screens that you create can easily be shared thanks to a one-touch upload feature.

 Buzz Launcher also has other features such as:

■ MULTI-GRID: you can designate different grids for each screen (up to 12×12)

■ MANAGE FOLDERS: you can make folders in app drawers/Homescreen, modify folder image, and resize folders

■ MANAGE APPS: features for viewing most frequently used apps, recently installed apps, and hiding apps

■ MANAGE APP DRAWERS: Screen concept is applied to app drawers so you can manage apps by screens

■ GESTURE SUPPORT: Glide up, Glide down, Double tab and more.

■ Previewing is supported for various view settings.

If creating home screens is not your thing, there are more than 300 available to choose from—and they are all provided through Homepack Buzz Service. Installing a home screen only requires you to download the one that you want. Buzz Launcher automatically sets everything up once the download is complete. Linked apps can then be downloaded at your own leisure.

There are many useful and created home screens available for use with this application. Many of the changes that Buzz Launcher users have made are reminiscent of Rainmeter. So if you’re in the market for a new launcher or simply just want to try something novel, more information can be found in the original thread.
