Action Launcher 3 gets loads of new Android 7.1 Nougat features and improvements
Among the new features included in this major update, there's an option to pick a global icon style for Pixel owners who prefer full-sized icons instead of the standard half baked ones. Also, Action Launcher's developers did a complete makeover of the settings and added new shortcuts to automatically open the keyboard when opening the All Apps drawer.
More importantly, Action Launcher now features full support for dynamic shortcuts in the Android 7.1 Nougat via Quickcuts. This particular feature is only available for those devices running Android 7.1.
It's also worth noting that Action Launcher devs have decided to make Quickcuts available to all, instead of keeping it exclusive to Plus users. A new setting for disabling all tooltips has been implemented as well, which is available via Settings / Help / In-app tips.
Several fixes for known issues have been included in the update, so expect Action Launcher work smoother than ever. For example, the update fixes an issue with a shortcut being converted back to a Quickcut after Quickcuts were disabled for that particular shortcut.
As developers point out, Action Launcher's Quickcuts might behave somewhat differently when compared with Pixel Launcher's since they were released before Google launched its Pixel phones.
