You will have to download Z Launcher from the official site, instead of through the Play Store or a beta testing service such as Hockey App.

Permissions

A long list of permissions  that you must accept are displayed during the installation process. Should you not be comfortable with the level of access the app requires, you can always uninstall it.

Permissions reminder

After you've installed the app, you're reminded one more time just how much data the app will collect about you. The data is necessary to customize the  user experience based on usage.

App listing

Your apps are listed in alphabetical order, with no way to reorganize them. But if the app does its job, you won't even consider having to reorganize them.
