Functions quickly, intuitive interface, stylish design, fully-featured free version
Do you want to have a custom home screen that stands out from all of your friends, but you are too lazy to create one yourself? If this is the case, then Zero Launcher for Android is the perfect app for you!
Whilst there are better alternatives out there for straight out customization, the huge library of pre-set themes and wallpapers in this app is what makes it a nice choice for those that don't want to spend the time creating their very own home screen. When you first start up this app, you will be given the default launch screen, but a couple of icons provided in the app drawer will lead you to the Zero store.
Within the store, you can pick from a large variety of user-made wallpapers, all of which are free, as well as download new themes created by users that will change the home wallpaper and the icons for each application. The Zero store is certainly where this app shines, and it's here that many users find and share great new themes to decorate their home screen with.
Every 24 hours, the Zero store will give out a free 'unlock' key which can be used to grab a free theme, but after the daily key, users must either pay for themes or pay for the full version. Giving out a free theme every 24 hours seems quite generous, especially considering many theme creators go to great lengths to develop their own themes. Another great thing about this app is that it is lightning quick - the developers have worked extremely hard to make it launch incredibly quickly, and they proudly exclaim that their launcher takes just 0.2 seconds to launch.
Besides the in-app purchases, Zero Launcher is a very great free personalization app for those that don't want to do the all of the work themselves.
