Homepack Buzz officially releases Buzz Launcher and announces design contest to celebrate

Homepack Buzz officially announced this morning that their popular free smartphone theming service, Buzz Launcher, is no longer in beta mode. Buzz Launcher 1.0 is now available on Google Play.

Not sure what Buzz Launcher is? This app utilizes the most distinctive feature of Android smartphones: the freedom of customization. It allows Android users to easily create their homescreens at the touch of a button. Users are given the ability to download, create, apply, upload, design, and innovate any number of homescreens for free. One can also rate, comment, like, follow and share homescreens with any social network.

According to the team at Homepack Buzz, the app has about 15,000+ homescreens for Android users to freely choose and share from, and version 1.0 is faster, smoother, and easier to use than the previous Buzz Launcher Beta version. They plan on continuously updating the app, and say a brand new ‘Follow’ function will be introduced shortly, allowing users to keep up with their favorite designers and easily get updates on their favorite designs.

Along with the release of the Buzz Launcher 1.0, Homepack Buzz has also announced a Global Design contest. A nice $10,000 in total prizes is up for grabs and will be awarded in two separate categories: the best designed homescreen and the top sharer of homescreens. Buzz Launcher’s 2013 Global Design Competition begins today (June 20th) and runs through July 15, 2013.
