A few weeks after receiving Google Now integration, Action Launcher gets a new update that delivers a weather widget for handsets that run Marshmallow or later, as well as new customization options.

Chris Lacy is back with a new update to its popular Android app launcher just a few weeks after adding Google Now integration to it. This update brings the current version number of Action Launcher up to 27.1 and comes with two solid changes - an integrated weather widget for Marshmallow (or later) devices, and a comprehensive set of new customization options.

According to the change log posted by Chris Lacy on Google+ two days ago, the new Action Launcher version comes with a few stability fixes, eliminates "a nasty memory leak," and packs the following new features:

  • Weather widget that requires Android 6.0 or later
  • custom Google Search bar now as a standalone widget, with an increased number of icons for customization
  • multiple visual customizations for the All Apps page, search box, Shutters, folders, and more

Although the weather widget requires Marshmallow, the entire app can still work with Android 4.1 devices or later. After more than one million installs, Action Launcher has been reviewed by more than 80,000 users and holds a Google Play rating of 4.2 out of 5.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
