Asus ZenUI Launcher now available for most Android phones (running Android 4.3 or newer)
If you own an Android smartphone that runs Android 4.3 or later, and you want to try out a new launcher, you can now get Asus' ZenUI - which, until recently, was seen only on Asus ZenFone handsets and tablets. ZenUI is available as a free download, and you can get it via Google Play (check out the source link at the end of this article).

ZenUI is highly customizable: you can change icons, effects, fonts, and so on, and there are various free themes that you can download from Asus. Overall, the launcher is pretty fluid and fast, but it's not as simple and straightforward as, say, Google Now Launcher or Nova Launcher, and it may take a little while before you get used to it.

One thing that we don't like is the fact that, once you install ZenUI, it will nag you to "protect your apps" with a security app called CM AppLock (but we don't really see the point of doing that). Anyway, most of the people who are already using ZenUI seem to like it a lot, as the launcher is currently rated 4.7 stars out of 5 on Google Play. Let us know if you want to give it a try, will you?

Foremost, this app is available in store from months. Not a new app I've installed this app on galaxy e5. To my surprise it is very smooth UI. Smoother than stock. The themes variety available on zen UI are quite good. Of course there are some non sense themes specifically those DARK Themes . Compared to other Themes I've used in past. Zen UI themes don't seem to drain battery at all. Most themes on playstore have battery drain issues. This one is perfect.

Indeed, it's been available for some months, but no one really reported about it.

Use it on all my stuff. Features you have to pay for on Nova and others are free. It's also been available for ages.

I like the Zen UI, the File Manager as well as the original "Asus Calendar with Lunar Calendar"

Hopefully this means Asus is going the stock Android route and making skins downloadable as themes.
