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

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.

I have somehow lost the "action settings" icon. I've tried doing a search for it, but it doesn't show up. I tried switching back to my stock launcher, and back to action launcher again to no avail. Is there another way to get the settings to come up?

Could someone smarter explain this to me; in the first picture i'm pressing empty space on screen. Nothing happens to the background image. On the second i'm pressing the dock icon and for some weird reason it scales the whole background. Not a problem just got interested.

I'm testing out Action Launcher 3 on my Moto Z Play. I am currently using GO Launcher Z. I'm testing Action Launcher before buying the full version. Is the Google Bar locked onto the home screens except in the full version? I've looked and held and no option appears for deleting it. Thanks for any input.

I use the double tap to sleep gesture. But after that I can't use the fingerprint sensor to unlock my device. Any app or any settings you guys know of that will let me use the fingerprint sensor after using the double tap gesture? Tia

+Nullgrad Apps​ I bow to your superior knowledge. Like I mentioned in my post, I don't have a fingerprint sensor on my device, so I'm not as familiar with the intricacies and complexities of this issue as you are.

I just thought I'd share a screenshot of how it works (or is supposed to work!) in Nova in the hope it might shed some light on the matter for the OP.

So finally I have a question now, regarding the Google now integration!
People say that a requirement for launchers to implement Google now integration requires it to be a system app, so how Google now works on the Google now launcher without any hiccups though it not being a system app????

Greetings! Is there a shortcut option to have the device 'sleep' instead of 'locked'?

Thanks....

+Danial Asghar I tried searching for the right term as it appears i wasn't clear. I am looking for a shortcut like 'double tap to sleep'

I set my lockscreen to only lock after 30mins or when power button is pressed and the shortcut for Action Launcher does this.

Sleep, I believe, is where the screen just turns off but leave the device unlocked.

However, I did not find the shortcut to be available. Maybe I could request the feature.

Thank you.

Recent convert from nova. I notice that with Action launcher my apps load quicker and my phone runs smoother. I love the quick page and bar because it cleans up my setup a lot. Thanks for your hard work Mr. Lacy!

Yep. I've also recently begun using Action Launcher instead of Nova.

I've actually had it installed for quite a while (October 2016), but only recently have I started to use as my daily launcher. And it's really quite good!

This isn't to imply any criticism of Nova. Nova is a superb launcher, and it has some great features that AL3 doesn't have, and which I do miss when using AL3.

The most useful in Nova (IMHO) is homescreen sub-grid positioning, which allows for more specific positioning of widgets and icons. AL3 doesn't have this feature, it has a regular homescreen grid of 5x6 icons (for example)...

...but AL3's implementation of Android 7.1 shortcuts, I feel, is better than in Nova, and of course it has 'Shutters', which is a great way of accessing widgets which you might not necessarily want to use (waste?) homescreen real estate on.

And of course, AL3 has Google Now as a left swipe-able panel, but only if your device is rooted, which probably rules it out as an option for most Android users😕.

All my devices are rooted and so I have write access to the /system partition, which means I've converted AL3 to a system app, thus allowing Google Now as a left swipe-able panel (as in the Pixel Launcher) and whilst not a critical deal breaker, it is certainly very nice to have.

I know that (in Nova) Google Now can be accessed by setting a swipe gesture, but having it as left swipe-able panel in AL3 just feels 'nicer' and is more convenient.

---------------

There are so many brilliantly talented and creative 'launcher' developers around (and Chris Lacy is one such developer), each with a different 'take' on what a launcher should be and what features it should offer, that I feel slightly uncomfortable praising one at the perceived expense of another, which really isn't my intention with this post.

---------------

So anyway, I'm currently sticking with AL3, and may return back to Nova at some point (and then back to AL3 again!!). And in between, I may make occasional forays into a third launcher I have installed, called Lightning Launcher, which redefines what a launcher could be. It has a relatively steep learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it's an extremely powerful launcher.

Well, that's my view anyway, for what it's worth☺️.

(PS. I suspect I probably spend way too much money and way, way too much time on Android software and the subsequent tinkering around with such software !!😕).

How is that Acton Launcher 3 is not as snappy as Google Now Launcher on my Nexus 6P ? Is there some "special" optimization that GNL has and and Action 3 can't achieve ?

Bingo. GNL can use undocumented APIs because launcher and OS are from the same team... brand... whatever. The same reason goes for Google Now intgration in GNL though it not being a system app.

Using HTC 10
Whenever I lock the screen with dt2s feature, I need pin to unlock, instead of the fingerprint scanner.
Is it action launcher fault, or device's?

Yeah I read about this issue the other day. Still in my xaiomi redmi note 3,I can wake up and unlock device from sleep (using double tap) without a issue. Maybe Xaiomi indeed forked something
