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).
There are presets to get you going, but you can fully customize the shortcuts and order of them as you so choose.
I’ve got to be honest – the new features that Chris Lacy has added to Action Launcher 3 over the past couple of updates have really got me considered a switch off of Nova.
The update is live now.
