Action Launcher: Quickcuts now implemented




Action Launcher: Quickcuts now implemented for all usable and further Android 7.1 features implemented

Action launcher 3 Chris Lacy seems to want to do better than the rest again 😉 Adding the new features of Android 7.1 – including the app shortcuts or the new round icons – is obviously one of the most important disciplines of the developers of alternative Launcher for Android. Lacy has recently implemented his action launcher’s interpretation of the shortcuts, called Quickcuts. However, only buyers of the Plus version have been able to access it. From now on, the free-users of the launcher can use the quickcuts and in general all users of the app are offered more scope. An extensive Changelog I put here at the end of the post purely.

With the quickcuts, the individual entries can now be displayed with a single gesture and one of them can be selected. A tip less so.


In addition, the round icons of the pixel launcher can now be selected for all apps. Also new is the optical change that the opened app drawer covers the navigation bar, as well as another (the pixel-matched) blue in the settings.
