Nokia actually no longer making hardware is not an easy thing to take, after-all, this was the company that dominated the mobile scene for years and was one of its leading lights in the early years. However, Nokia sold its devices division to Microsoft earlier in the year and is now focusing on its services and software. That means the company that has helped to build Windows Phone over the years is now working on Android with its admittedly fantastic Z Launcher.
On June 19th of this year, Nokia was reborn. The company that had been known for years as a cell phone pioneer had sold off its devices business, and the world was waiting to see what new paths Nokia might take. There are a few, as it turns out, but one of them saw the company release a surprisingly innovative new Android app this past summer, and it just got a big update that users will love. Earlier this week, Nokia announced on its Z Launcher blog that the like-named app, which is the first stand-alone Android software Nokia has ever released, has been improved in several key areas. For those who did not see the original news, Nokia’s Z Launcher app is a nifty Android launcher that makes accessing the contacts you correspond with most frequently and your most commonly used apps a breeze.
