    Many of you will have heard of Buzz Launcher:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.buzzpia.aqua.launcher&hl=en

    What's unique about this launcher is that users can save and share, by uploading them here:

    https://www.homepackbuzz.com/homepack/list

    Their home screens, ie not just a theme but the entire layout of wallpaper, icons, widgets, etc.

    I wanted to share with you what I learnt about how the app stores data on the phone's memory. This is because I couldn't find a way to find the wallpaper files and apply them using another launcher.

    The easiest way I found is to download a homepack, apply it, then do a backup (menu -> buzz settings --> backup) which will be stored as a.bbak file in this folder in the phone's internal SD:

    buzz_launcher/backup

    In fact, it's simply a .zip file. You can change the extension to .zip, and easily extract the wallpaper, which is typically called wallpaper.png

    Also, when you download a homepack, the data is typically stored in:
    Android/Data/com.buzzpia.aqua.launcher/files/files.zip

    but I haven't managed to extract wallpapers from there.

    Hope this helps!
