Action Launcher 1.0.3 is live in the Play Store
This release fixes the troubles placing certain widgets, as well as the app's overall stability. I apologize for having these issues slip through the cracks in the initial release.
I've also closed the DRM loophole. I'm confident this solution will not adversely effect people who legitimately purchased the app, but please do let me know if you have any issues.
This release is also significant because I have abandoned the ill-fated 'download another apk' process and moved the actual launcher into the Action Launcher Pro apk. Future updates will now roll out as you expect. Please follow the in-app prompt to remove the old version.
I've also created a G+ community, which is the official place to post feature requests, bug reports, or general feedback: https://plus.google.com/communities/109326856140078966644
Finally, I would like to thank each and every one you who bought the initial release. Your support is hugely appreciated. I have big plans for this project going forward, and I very much hope you will enjoy the features I have planned for you in the near future :)
