Superstar Android developer Chris Lacy has just released his latest project onto the Google Play store. It’s not an entirely new app like Link Bubble or HomeTube was, but a complete overhaul of the app that put Lacy on the map, Action Launcher.
Based on the Google Now Launcher, Action Launcher 3 is an entire rewrite and redesign of Action Launcher for Lollipop. While still maintaining most of the features from previous Action Launcher versions, like the Quick Drawer and Covers, Action Launcher 3 is made entirely with Material Design in mind. Everything about Action Launcher 3 fits right in with Google’s latest version of Android, and it looks fantastic.
Perhaps the coolest new feature is Quick Theme, Action Launcher’s new ability to change the color of the search bar, quick drawer, folder backgrounds and more to match your wallpaper. Quick Theme also integrates with Muzei 2.0, so as your wallpaper automatically changes, so do the rest of the UI elements on your device.
With Action Launcher being such a huge update, there is going to be a charge for the Pro version of the app even if you had previously purchased the app. You can still download and use the old Pro version of Action Launcher, but Action Launcher 3 Pro will cost $4.99, and is available as an in-app purchase in the regular app. Action Launcher 3 is available now on Google Play. Don’t wait; check it out now.
