The Google Play Store provides a welcome supply of custom launchers for smartphone and tablet users to try out. Action Launcher 3 by developer Chris Lacy is held dear to many users for its wealth of customization options. Not only that, but Lacy keeps Action Launcher 3 fresh and exciting with regular updates. Three weeks ago, he brought a slew of features to the fold, including Nexus Launcher integration. Now, he's also added myriad features of Google's Android 7.1 Nougat, including the firmware's new "Quickcuts" launcher shortcuts, rounded icons and more. 

It's strongly suspected that Google will take the wraps off Android 7.1 at next week's event in San Francisco. We've had a teaser of the updated flavor of Android through numerous leaks and if you don't want to wait for the official roll-out, Action Launcher 3 adds some of its functionality to whichever version of Android you already have running. 

You can try out the new Quickcuts, which let you access an app's key functions right from its icon. Also in the offing is support for Pixel Launcher's All Apps drawer, accessible through a simple upward swipe at the dock. 

Below is a video which teases the major new features and if you like what you see, hit the download link above.
