Android's renowned Action Launcher
just received a completely overhauled third edition that got released as a new app in the Play Store. Besides the obligatory Material Design redraw, Action Launcher 3 has kept on its tradition to introduce new and brave takes on the Android launcher concept, too.
Developer Chris Lacy has above all added more personalization and flexibility to its launcher project, such as the awesome Quicktheme idea, which pulls color schemes from your current wallpaper, and applies them throughout the interface for a more complete skinning. It even supports rotary backgrounds like Muzei
There is plenty more, too - Covers and Shutters
are a unique take on Chris Lacy's uncompromising views on aesthetics, as they allow you to launch apps, widgets, and house shortcuts, all the while keeping the carefully crafted homescreen layout you've been slaving over for weeks. With Action Launcher 3, however, you can set separate colors there, too. Infinite folders are also a go, letting you add as much apps within one as your heart desires. All these niceties will cost you, though, as the developer now charges five bucks for the new launcher.
It's one of the best out there, though, and if you count all the in-app purchases that come with other popular launchers, it doesn't stray away too much in pricing. As usual, Action Launcher 3 allows you to import the setup you've made with your existing launcher, regardless if it's Apex, Nova, Google, or manufacturer overlays like Sense or TouchWiz.
