Released at the end of last week, Action Launcher 42 comes with full theme support — light, dark, and full black options available, color matching and custom color selection for the Quicktheme feature, improved Google Discover/Now and ActionDash integration, and more. This app requires Android 5.0 Lollipop or later.
Codrut Nistor,

Although we did not find the time to talk about Action Launcher for a while, this Android app is doing all right and has just received a new update. Now at version 42, Chris Lacy's creation has reached a whole new level in terms of visual customization possibilities.

When it comes to the most important changes delivered by Action Launcher 42, the list includes the following:

  • Full theme support with light, dark, and full black options that also have an impact on the home screen.
  • Custom color selection and color matching for the popular Quicktheme feature.
  • Dark-themed Google Discover (Google Now) — the feed now matches the active theme.Improved ActionDash integration.

According to its Google Play page, Action Launcher has been downloaded more than 5,000,000 times so far. After more than 96,000 user reviews, the app holds a pretty good rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars. Action Launcher 42 requires a device that runs at least Android 5.0 Lollipop and, just like all its predecessors, is free to download and use. However, there are some in-app purchases available for those who want to get some additional customization options.

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.
