Buzz Launcher Wants to Pay $10,000 to the Best Android Home Screens on the Planet

buzz launcher1

Anyone remember Buzz Launcher? This is the third party launcher that launched as a beta back in March, allowing you to share and install all of the most beautiful home screen setups on the planet with a only few simple clicks. For example, you could spend hours cruising around MyColorScreen trying to come up with an idea for your next setup, but with Buzz Launcher, that entire setup may already be available to download through their marketplace and without having to pick and choose items from Google Play. It’s a pretty brilliant idea, actually, especially for those who are constantly tweaking phone appearances or looking for the next great trend.

We took at a look at this new third party launcher back in April, and came away impressed by its ability to quickly get you the setup of your dreams without much work. We also saw the potential that it could have should its userbase grow and the community involved with it continued to share their home screen setups. 

The app is now out of beta and officially available on Google Play, so to celebrate, the HomePack Buzz Team (team behind Buzz Launcher) has decided to give away $10,000 in cash to users of their app. More specifically, they have $8,000 to give away to the most beautiful home screens on the planet, with another $2,000 going to users who share the most.

Since we’re big fans of home screen customization here at DL, we thought we’d share.

    Buzz Launcher all the way!!!! Screw nova… Buzz got billion more stuff to look at, much faster, can customize all your icons and folders, and above all, FREE

  • Jason Dokos

    The one thing I’ve found missing from Buzz Launcher is being able to create/copy/fully edit the current items. Say I wanted to create a new folder in the way it’s created in that specific theme—there’s no simple way to do so

    I tried this launcher and while I liked it, it was like wearing someone else’s pants. The pockets were there but it didn’t fit my needs. Personalize means tailoring it to your needs/habits/uses not someone else’s.

  • Paras Chowhan

    go launcher all the way

  • dirtytofu

    Anyone know what clock widget that is? Or the skin name?

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    Fantastic idea but definitely flawed.

  • Austin_tacious

    I wish I knew about this before I took a whole day to setup a UI with Nova. Can’t wait to try it out.

  • Pengwn

    I tried it out the last time it was featured but was riddled with foreign languages. Has that been address yet or do you still have to manually rename something in English?

  • sk3litor

    Pretty cool launcher but still have to download a bunch of stuff if you want the really good ones. Plus it seems really slow

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Using Buzz Launcher and someone else’s theme feels like…cheating.

  • Ben Udkow

    Looks very nice. I played around with it a bit, but honestly I have Nova Prime setup exactly how I like it, and I don’t notice anything missing. I like the idea of dynamic/easily changed homescreens, but not sure it’s something that would *add* to my experience. I like the comfort of knowing exactly where everything is on my phone and how it looks. :-)

    Prepare yourself for an overload of minimalist style designs.

    Once again, thank you droid life. I had miss this story on buzz launcher and finally downloading it!

  • ConCal

    I love Buzz Launcher. I switched from Nova Prime and I’ve never looked back.
    If you like fancy pants home screens, this launcher is the way to go.

  • Dan

    Can’t access the website for themes. Is it down?

  • gambit07

    Great launcher, been using it for a few months. Really customizable and runs just as well as any other launcher I’ve tried. If you’re looking for something unique this is definitely the way to go

  • Bionic

    Nova

    • zurginator

      The 1-word name is a hint to put it with his name.

      They’re making the Motorola Bionic Nova!

      • RAZR_FANN

        I think he said in an earlier post something about a phone simply called the “Motorola Nova”.

  • DJyoSNOW

    I did try and like the launcher but meh and after uninstalling it bonked out my phone.

  • John

    Sweet.

    Oh….and GO Blackhawks!!
