Action Launcher 3.9 beta 11 is currently rolling out, adding support for Nougat style folders.

I resisted adding these up to this point because I hated the way they looked when they dropped in one of the N Previews. But when you combine the weight of user requests for them and my coming to not hate them so much, here we are. Of course Covers are still a far superior means of organizing desktop shortcuts 😎.

It's been a full 3 weeks since the first 3.9 beta arrived. I had hoped to have this update out publicly by now, but there's still a few tidbits to go yet. It won't be an "August 2016" update as I had hoped, but such is life. Between the new All Apps mode, Nougat style folders, Google Pill/Date widgets and a few other goodies to come, it should be a good update.

Enjoy, and thanks for everyone's help reporting bugs!

2 things:

I wish the day of week was right justified instead of centered under the date (Nexus Launcher widget)

And I hate to compare launchers BUT - when you have the option "Lock The Desktop" set in Nova, and you un-lock it to make a change from the desktop, it relocks itself after. I love that feature. I don't want to have to go back into the settings to relock the desktop after making a small change (like moving an app or something).

Otherwise: perfect, beautiful. Wonderful work 😀

+Chris Lacy​ app drawer previously didn't lock while desktop locked. That was fix then broken again on 3.8 releases when you updated to mm codebase. Not sure about 3.9 beta, I assume it's broken. Auto-relock feature is nice to have, maybe you can make desktop relock upon next screen off.

+Chris Lacy​ I was wondering if you could add double tap to sleep but with root so we don't have use our password/pattern to unlock the phone. Now that some people actually have their phones rooted for the Google now integration it would be a nice addition. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know how icon mask works for Action Launcher?
I implemented it on ARK and dARK, it works great in nova, but when it comes to Action Launcher the shape doesn't mask.

Any ideas?

Reachability feature, double tap the home button and it brings the top half of the screen down so that way we can reach buttons easier.

+Chris Lacy For some reasons i've downgraded from Android 6.0.1 (cm 13) to Android 5.1.1 (cm 12.1) and I find the new Nougat app drawer to be noticeably worse on Lollipop. It seems that the slide up animation is quite laggy on Lollipop. On Marshmallow all was working fine on the same phone.

Can I provide something that can help to identify the issue?

Many thanks for your attention. Awesome launcher :)

Laggy on my lollipop device too. Maybe you could have a fallback animator on lollipop?

Antimo icon pack, and just Google "LG wallpaper" and it'll pop up. I think this was one of their stock wallpapers from an earlier phone.

Bug report on my Verizon Galaxy Note 7. I backed up the settings from my old Note 5, which used a 5x5 desktop grid. However, when I import them to the Note 7, it reverts to 4x4, which frankly looks ridiculous on this giant screen, and deletes an entire row and column of data in the process.

Performing the same process from a Note 3 to the Note 5 works properly.

+Christopher Haynie Understood. Note 5 to 7 is Marshmallow to Marshmallow.

I am posting this on bugs because it IS a bug for me, but no-one else seems to have it so I am lost. The thing is, no matter which version I use, when I try to edit the homescreen (remove/add shortcuts, widgets) it crashes and force closes the launcher. Then when it restarts nothing is changed. Please help and thanks!
P.S: HTC One M7, 5.0.2, Rooted + Xposed, running Insertcoin ROM 7.1.3
