Action Launcher's September 2016 update is OUT NOW!

The goal of this update was simple: add all of Nexus Launcher's new features, then make them even better.

By adding Nexus Launcher's new All Apps mode, folders and dock tinting, then allowing these features to be colorized via Quicktheme, I feel they are enhanced in a very simple yet powerful way.

And I'm particularly happy with the enhancements to folders. When Nexus Launcher's new folder style was first revealed in an N Preview earlier this year and I wasn't overly excited by how they looked, but between Quicktheme support and a new "outline only" mode, I'm happy with how they turned out in Action Launcher.

The complete list of changes in this update is as follows:

• NEW: Revamped All Apps panel, based on the rumoured Nexus Launcher. If enabled, swiping up on the dock will reveal All Apps.
• NEW: Add two new Nougat inspired folder presets (requires Android 4.4 or later).
• NEW: Quicktheme support to customize the color of folder icons.
• NEW: Add tinted dock background with full color customization via Quicktheme.
• NEW: Option for caret (^) style page indicator.
• NEW: Add rumored Google "pill" widget.
• NEW: Add rumored Nexus Launcher style Date widget, which can be configured to load a custom app.
• NEW: When setting a wallpaper on Android 7.0, you can select whether the wallpaper applies to the lock screen, home screen or both.
• NEW: The wallpaper picker app can be configured.
• NEW: Add "Marshmallow (Beta)" All Apps style.
• CHANGE: Group some rarely used Desktop settings in an expandable "Advanced" group.
• FIX: Fix low-res icons sometimes displaying in All Apps/folders after using Quickedit to edit a label but not an icon.
• FIX: Fix issue going back to Action Launcher via Home button from landscape when running Android 7.0.
• FIX: "Action 3 Settings" appears in app drawers when running Android 7.0.
• FIX: Long pressing the dock enters overview mode.
• FIX: Fix issue where uninstalling an app that was in the most loaded row would cause an empty slot to display.
• FIX: If configured, opening Settings via the button on the overview bar will use the Reveal animation (requires Android 6.0).
• FIX: Fix rare crash attempting to load Display settings after restoring a backup created with a more recent Android version.
• FIX: Ensure correct text color is applied when dragging Shutter shortcut into an open folder.
• FIX: Fix visual artifact on certain icons when app boots on Jelly Bean.
• FIX: Stability fix when loading widget previews when the device is running low on memory.
• FIX: Fix issue with Quickpage not re-opening after loading an app via the Quickpage whilst using the Action bar.
• FIX: Fix red status bar briefly displaying when app boots on large Android 7.0 tablets.
• FIX: The T9 Quickfind option works again.
• FIX: All Apps search box cursor only blinks when entering text.

+Niclas Martin​​ yes. Transparent weather widget. That might be it.
I set it to update data only on WiFi. Let's see if that makes much of a difference.

Feature Request: Wouldn't it be cool to give the Pixel Launcher icons Quicktheme capabilities, so that the white circle changes colors depending on the main color of the App icon?

Example: For Gmail, the circle would be red, for the Dialer App, it would be blue, green for Feedly, yellow for IMDb and so on...

I'm sick of the redraws, have tried 5 other top launchers. None of them do it as frequently as this app does. Please look into it ASAP.

First off my phone specs.... Secondly go to change my wallpaper and action launcher crashes, regardless of what image I choose from my SD card. So I'm stuck with Rorschach as my background.

I'd love to be able to add a clock into the QuickBar alongside the buttons. Like in the place of the word "Google," place a clock.

I don't know how often this will even come up but when using the nougat style app drawer if the drawer is all the way at the top and you swipe your finger horizontally across the drawer you will not be able to scroll through your apps until you pull down the drawer a little or completely exit it off it. Version 3.9.6

Don't think it's my imagination but there seems to be an issue using round pixel icons where a swipe on a cover or shutter will open the app itself and not the cover or shutter. The issue disappears when I revert to using my own icon pack.

Seems like the pixel icons become super sensitive to gestures
