Action Launcher Update Brings Adaptive Icon & Folder Support

The ever popular Android launcher, Action Launcher, has yet another big update rolling out this week.  Version 31.2 of the app brings several new features along with support for the Essential Phone.  This update comes just two weeks after the last major update to Action Launcher which brought several Pixel 2 looks & feels to the launcher.

In this new build, support for adaptive icons is now available.  This is a big feature of Android Oreo as readers likely know by now.  The cool thing is, this new feature will work in the launcher if you are running Android Lollipop (version 6.x) or later.  This new adaptive icons has also been extended to the folders and this is all included in the free version of the app.

 

For those of you who are on Oreo, support for Android 8.0’s widget and shortcut pinning is now added to Action Launcher.  If you have the Essential Phone PH-1, good news is in this version of the launcher for you too.  Your phone is now supported.

Along with all of these few features, there are a slew of bug fixes and performance improvements to the launcher.  Even if all of the new features are a big deal for you, if you are using it for your launcher, be sure to get this update.
Action Launcher is free to download in the Play Store and offers several in-app purchases.  The Plus version of the app which unlocks everything in it is $4.99 and it is well worth it.  This launcher is one of the best out there and one of the more frequently updated too.
If you have the launcher already installed, this new update should be rolling out to you via an OTA update over the course of the next few days.
