Action Launcher version 3.4 update brings a ton of new customization options
If you thought Action Launcher 3 was already incredibly feature-rich and customizable, wait until you see the new update to version 3.4. The update, which is now rolling out in the Google Play Store, brings well over a dozen new features and improvements to the app.
Most notably, you can now make the All Apps/widgets list scroll vertically, making it much easier to reach the end of the list quicker. You can also customize the All Apps grid size and icon scale, as well as edit the icons and labels found in the All Apps and Quickdrawer panels. You can now also configure the font throughout the launcher, with the ability to choose from five different Roboto font variants. Take a look at the video below to see the new enhancements in action.
For those interested, we’ve attached the changelog below. We’ve only added in the new features and improvements sections, and if you’d like to see the list of bug fixes, you can head over to developer Chris Lacy’s Google+ page to check it out for yourself.
