Nokia's latest project, Z Launcher, is a home screen launcher that aims to give you what you need, when you need it, with little to no effort on your end. By no means is Z Launcher a powerhouse with features like Nova, but what it does have is a simple design with a really interesting way of finding information and apps on your phone, but more on that later.
The main screen of Z Launcher has a clock and calendar widget along with a list of apps and contacts. The list changes depending on where you are, the time of day, and other data that the launcher has collected about your usage habits, but don't worry, it's all kept private and secure. As of right now, you cannot add more widgets, but that is a planned feature.
Other than the drawing feature, there isn't a whole lot to explore with Z Launcher. You have the standard dock and app drawer...and that's about it. Remember that this is still in beta, so expect bugs and some hiccups here and there. If you find anything else interesting tucked into the launcher, be sure to let us know in the comments below.
I used to be staunchly against UI skinning (and for the most part I still am) but Sense 3.0 finally adds some things that I think go beyond just being eye candy that woos in ordinary smartphone shoppers. Those features are namely things like Sense 3.0 lock screen informatics and shortcuts, and htcsense.com features. I've put together a video with all the important changes which you can watch, or just read everything below.

There's no denying that the top-used app for Android Auto is Google Maps, seeing that it's installed across a billion devices. It's one of the most accurate and efficient mapping apps that provides turn-by-turn directions no matter where you're located. Simply press the voice search button on your steering wheel, say the name of a businss or address, and your car display will show all the relevant details. There's no need for a subscription and it's constantly updated to boot. So, Maps is the number-one go-to for Android Auto users with its gigantic installation base, thanks to its fantastic directions when driving that few competitors can beat. Plus, the map is reactive to lighting, meaning light and dark themes are offered and switch automatically, such as when you enter a tunnel. So for everyone using Android Auto, Maps is an obvious choice for in-car navigation. Waze is also great (which is why it's also on the list), but Maps packs many more features, such as offline functionality
TomTom has been in the satellite navigation game since 2004, so it would make sense that the company offers a handful of apps on Android, and TomTom GO Navigation is the big boy of the group. You can trial this navigation software for 30 days, fully featured, and if you like what you see, you can subscribe monthly for $5, go with six months for $16, or grab a year's worth of directions for $25. 2b1af7f3a8
