Zeam Launcher

Zeam Launcher

Zeam Launcher is a minimalistic and lightweight launcher for the Android platform.

We are increasingly seeing ever faster dual core processors in mobile phones. However, even with this greater horse power, we can still encounter less than snappy frontends. Zeam Launcher is a return to a more lightweight, quicker alternative, designed to replace your home screen and apps list with a simple, less cluttered, and more importantly less resource intensive solution.

With small icons, gesture support and more real estate, Zeam Launcher has a lot going for it. It feels fast even on relatively underpowered processors, and has a reasonable array of configuration options. It is an improvement on TwLauncher.
