Action Launcher updated with AdaptiveZoom, more Android 8.1 Oreo goodies


The bulk of Android users who decided to customize their smartphones are mostly using three, maybe for Android launchers that are listed in the Google Play Store. One of these popular apps, Action Launcher has just been updated with several new features and improvements.

The latest Action Launcher was recently released in the Google Play Store as version 33 and introduces AdaptiveZoom, a new feature that expands the background of an app icon to the entire screen when you swipe on it. In order to benefit from this feature, you'll need to use adaptive icons in the Action Launcher.

The update also adds Android 8.1 style “bounce” animation in All Apps drawer and provides users with the opportunity to support Action Launcher by buying the new 2018 Supporter pack ($6 or $12), which includes 3 exclusive themed wallpapers.

Furthermore, the new version of Action Launcher has a new option that enables users to drag to delete the contents of an entire Home screen. Also, the home screen indicator received some polish, and Android's Accessibility APIs usage has been enabled once again. Obviously, some bug fixes and optimizations have been implemented too.
