Customizing your icons is easier than ever with the latest Action Launcher 3 update
Action Launcher 3 has been one of our favorite third-party launchers on Android for some time now, and today it’s getting even better. In the latest update that’s rolling out as we speak, developer Chris Lacy has added a few new features that will make customizing your smartphone a breeze.
The headline feature here is called Quickedit, which is a much simpler way to edit shortcuts. On your home screen, simply long press on the icon of your choosing, release, and a little menu will show up with suggestions for icon alternatives based on the icon packs you currently have installed on your device. If you don’t have any icon packs installed, you can quickly jump to Google Photos, Dropbox and more to create your own icons, or quickly jump to the Play Store for more information on that particular app.
Also in this update is a feature called Smartsize (currently in beta). Smartsize will automatically resize your icons to fit the Material Design icon grid. Trust me, your home screen will look a lot better after this feature has been turned on. Take a look:
There’s also a handy new addition that will correctly display the current day of the month for the Google Calendar icon. Pretty cool, right? That’s not all. There are a ton of additional fixes and features in this update, all of which you can check out in Chris Lacy’s Google+ post. For a full rundown of all the new features in this big update, you’ll want to watch the promotional video for this update:
