Bazooka Launcher for Android Is A Skinner’s Dream (Video)


We’ve said it before and it won’t be long before you’ll probably hear us say it again: one of the things we like best about Android is it’s ability to be customized quickly and easily through the installation of a custom Launcher.

The Launcher is the app that holds your homescreen, widgets, wallpapers, and app drawer. Having a fast Launcher is vitally important, otherwise your entire smartphone or tablet will feel “laggy”. Sometimes in the interest of speed, developers will remove various bells and whistles such as animations, custom icons, and the ability to be themed. Other developers will sacrifice a little speed to add in some soft touches and nicer features. Launcher apps usually do one or the other very well, but aren’t both speedy and feature-filled at the same time.

Today we’ll take a look at Bazooka — a Launcher that’s both fast and supports a pretty cool set of themes and features. Take a look!

Bazooka is based on Cyanogen’s Trebuchet Launcher — which comes stock with modern CyanogenMod ROMs. It’s fast and it’s stable. Bazooka extends Trebuchet with themes that you can quickly and easily download and apply, gesture support, and even a fancy lock-screen replacement.

In our test-drive of Bazooka we were impressed with its speed and fluidity, as well as its ease of use. Themes reminded us of MIUI-based ROMs, and looked polished and professional.

If you want to give Bazooka Launcher a try on your Android, you can grab a copy from the Play Store, it’s free!
