Chris Lacy hat am Action Launcher für Android ordentlich geschraubt und gestern Version 3.3 als umfangreiches App-Update veröffentlicht. Und wenn ich umfangreich meine, dann ist das auch tatsächlich so. Neben zahlreichen kleineren Veränderungen sind auch diverse größere Neuerungen vorhanden, wie beispielsweise die API für Live Wallpaper (schaut euch Minimal Pro an). Verknüpfungen und Gesten sind ebenso erweitert und können nun deutlich besser konfiguriert werden.


Des Weiteren hat Lacy jetzt die Google-Suche als Overlay integriert, den Homescreen-Indikator an Android 5.1 angepasst und auch diverse neue Animationen für den Hintergrund eingeführt. Folgend findet ihr noch das komplette Changelog des Entwicklers. Den neusten Action Launcher gibt es natürlich angeboten als App-Update über den Play Store, viel Spaß damit!

• NEW: Live wallpaper API support, enabling Quicktheme to reliably work with live wallpaper apps. For an example of this in action, check out the excellent Minima Pro.
• NEW: Shortcuts & gestures (Settings -> Shortcuts) both expanded and fully customizable. Gestures supported include: single/double/triple tap Home button; double/triple tap empty space; swipe up single/two fingers; swipe down single/two fingers; swipe left screen edge/swipe leftmost Home screen/swipe right screen edge/swipe rightmost Home screen; and pinch in/out.
• NEW: Ability to configure action taken by a gesture. Actions include load an app, load a shortcut, toggle All Apps, toggle Quickdrawer, toggle Quickpage, open Action 3 settings, display overview mode, lock/unlock desktop, lock device, open recents, open notifications, open text search and open voice search.
• NEW: When searching, use Google search box overlay instead of switching into the Google app. Can be changed via Settings -> Shortcuts -> Global search mode.
• NEW: As requested, an additional Donate option has been added for people who are so inclined (Settings -> Help -> Donate).
• NEW: Animate to/from the All Apps background color when opening/closing All Apps (requires Android 5.0 or later).
• NEW: Home screen indicators updated to match Android 5.1’s style.
• NEW: Allow importing of Action 3 layouts by other launchers. Thanks Kevin from Nova for the prod here.
• IMPROVEMENT: Gesture detection works over icons as well as empty space.
• IMPROVEMENT: Shortcuts to open notification panel works on Samsung devices running Android 5.x (requires granting access to the Accessibility system unfortunately).
• IMPROVEMENT: Size and positioning of Google search widget perfectly matches with the Google app on tablets.
• IMPROVEMENT: „Remove Shutter“ option is available both when picking up and putting down a Shutter and from the overflow menu.
• CHANGE: No longer default to opening Google Now when swiping right on leftmost Home screen. This option can be configured via Settings -> Shortcuts -> Leftmost Home screen -> App -> Google.
• CHANGE: Increase default double/triple tap delay to 275 milliseconds.
• FIX: Use light touch effect when Up button is pressed in Settings.
• FIX: If a Shutter/folder is open on the Quickpage, don’t close Shutter/folder and Quickpage with the same swipe gesture.
• FIX: Fix behavior oddities when changing settings via the „Action 3 Settings“ All Apps item.
• FIX: Misc. stability fixes.
