Action Launcher's December 2016 update is OUT NOW

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.actionlauncher.playstore

The goal with Action Launcher's December 2016 update was simple: address as much of the "Action Launcher looks great, but it doesn't support traditional_launcher_feature_x so I can't/won't use it" feedback as possible.

By far the most commonly requested feature from would-be Action Launcher users has been unread badge support, so a great many people will be pleased to know the feature has come to Action Launcher for core apps such as SMS, Phone, Calendar and Gmail.

Another highly requested feature is scrollable docks, which also arrives in this update.

In a move to better highlight some of Action Launcher's more unique features, the iconic Quickpage, a fully featured home screen panel that slides in from the right screen edge, is no longer a premium feature, and is unlocked for all users.

Oh, and there's a new option to use Android's new round icons, but only if they don't look like "an icon on a plate".

Believe it or not, there's still more goodies in this update. The full change log is as follows:

• NEW: Initial unread badge support ('Alpha').
Currently displays the number of unread SMS messages, missed calls, unread Gmail/Inbox messages and upcoming calendar appointments.
• NEW: Fully customize the appearance of unread badges.
• NEW: A new "Round (exclude white plates)" icon style. Use Android 7.1's round icons, but only if they do not look like an "icon on a plate"!
• NEW: Quickpage, a fully customizable home screen panel accessible from the right screen edge, is no longer a Plus only feature and is available for all users.
• NEW: Quicktheme support for customizing dock separator color.
• NEW: Move all dock related settings to their own group in the settings.
• NEW: Line style dock separator.
• NEW: Can use up to five scrolling dock pages.
• NEW: Option for infinite home screen scrolling.
• NEW: Layout/settings are backed up via Android's automatic daily backups (requires Android 6.0 or later).
• NEW: Add 2017 Supporter Badge. It is a one-off, non-recurring and entirely optional in-app purchase that customers can opt make.

Grab Action Launcher from the Play Store now. As always, if you'd see fit to leave me a review, I'd be very appreciative!

Note: I've previously stated my intention to integrate Pixel Launcher style 'bubbles' and long-press activation for Quickcuts/App shortcuts. I had hoped this feature would be ready for this update, but alas it wasn't. Barring something entirely unforeseen occurring, these enhancements are scheduled to arrive in the next update.

I came across this app, " Button mapper" that can re-map the capacitive buttons with custom function, using accessibility feature . As we can already turn off screen via home button gesture, will it be possible to add switch to " last app" option in the future updates? That's one nougat feature that I really miss on my phone.

How can I support action launcher in my icon pack? I don't use a template, I develop one by myself.

Lol!! I always wonder why people take a cool design and then ruin it with something like this. Lol

Normally I use the Vibrant color, but sometimes AL3 can't determine this color for certain wallpapers, and switches over to Muted. However for my Status Bar I use the Tinted version of Vibrant, but that one doesn't switch over to the Tinted version of Muted. The Tinted Vibrant color is kept and mentioned as Custom under Quicktheme.
+Chris Lacy can you check this out please?

The main feature that I would like to see is a timeout feature with the screen lock gesture so we can still use the fingerprint scanner.

Would it be possible to add a "sort" button to folders? Sometimes when importing folders from Pixel Launcher they aren't imported in the same order. Also if you add a new app to an existing folder, unless you want it to go right to the end of the folder page you'd need to place it manually.

Hi! I just ran into a weird bug that all widgets all of a sudden didn't load and only displayed spinning wheels. Restarting the launcher and the phone didn't help. Deleting and putting them back fixed that.

+Sven Seebeck no. Its preferred to do so with the app itself.

Has the wallpaper app picker been removed, and if so, why? Can't seem to find it.

Nope. Shortcuts or press and hold a blank spot on any screen.
