Action Launcher 3 Update Introduces Quickbar, a Customizable Google Bar for Your Home Screen

Action Launcher 3 received an update today that includes one major new feature that gives your home screen more power and control than ever – the Quickbar.

With the Quickbar, you get to take the Google Search bar that sits on your home screen and customize the hell out of it. That means you can add app shortcuts to it (like Google Play, music apps, Instagram, etc.), menus full of favorite contacts or settings, and buttons for pulling out your side drawer. You can even customize how the Google Search function operates when tapped (voice, overlay, or the Google app).  (more…)

OnePlus 2 Will Have 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM

I can’t tell what the bigger announcement is from OnePlus, that the OnePlus 2 will have 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM or that they are done with this obnoxious (t)rollout of features until they unveil the phone on July 27. I’m leaning towards the latter. Actually no, I’m fully invested in the latter. OnePlus may have made a heck of a phone last year in the OnePlus One (our review), but my lord, they are the most obnoxious company on Earth with this #hypetrain garbage they continually vomit to keep their name in headlines. So, yay for no more feature puke!  (more…)
