Although Action Launcher 28.1 is a free launcher app, the AdaptivePack addon that is needed to have adaptive icons on Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat devices is a commercial product. Its regular price tag reads US$4.99, but this week it can be acquired for 30 percent less.

Less than a month since Action Launcher 27.1 arrived with more customization options and an integrated weather widget for its users running Marshmallow (or later), Chris Lacy returns with a new solid update for this well-known Android launcher. This time, the update brings Android 8.0 Oreo-style adaptive icons to devices that run Android Lollipop, Marshmallow, or Nougat.

Action Launcher was updated to version 28.1 on September 15 and, in addition to the adaptive icons-related stuff, it features a new icon picker and improved support for Oreo. Fortunately, even Android Lollipop users can take advantage of the AdaptivePack addon that brings adaptive icons to Action Launcher. Unfortunately, those who want this feature must pay a price. This week only, the AdaptivePack for Action Launcher can be acquired for US$3.49, but the price will go back to its regular value of US$4.99 next week.

The official description of the addon mentioned above reveals it as "an icon pack that allows Action Launcher to display Adaptive Icons on all devices running Android Lollipop or later." Even more, Android Oreo users get to enjoy adaptive icons for many apps that do not provide support for this feature yet. The following five icon shapes are available to choose from at this time: square, squircle, circle, rounded square, and teardrop.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean users can still enjoy this app, but the adaptive icons feature requires at least Android 5.0 Lollipop. Since we last talked about it, this app received almost 2,000 new user ratings on Google Play. However, its rating remains 4.2 out of 5, while its number of installs still seems to have a long road until finally reaching the 5 million barriers.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
