Action Launcher 3 has now received its December update which offers quite a few new features that will enhance the user experience even further.

The handy Quickpage, a home screen with support for widgets that’s always accessible with a swipe from the right hand edge, used to be an Action Launcher Plus feature but is now included in the free version. Unread badge count support has also been added (but only for Plus users) as well as scrolling dock pages.


As for design changes, Action Launcher 3 now has a new “Round (exclude white plates)” icon style, which imitates the look of the newest version of Android (removing the white circular background from irregularly shaped app icons). It also brings Quicktheme support for customizing page indicator color, infinite dock and home screen scrolling and new page indicator styles.
