This new full release of Chris Lacy's popular Android launcher features various Android O elements, such as extended Unread Count support, new "Icons & App Shortcuts" settings, as well as a new widget picker.

Action Launcher has been around for a while and, since we talked about it last time, it seems that Chris Lacy decided to change its labeling, going from 3.xx to a two-figure version number. This way, now we have Action Launcher v26, and this update turns this app into one of the first of its kind to offer Android O-style features.

According to the official Google+ post about this new update, the latest Action Launcher release comes with "Android O style Notification Dots, App Shortcut styling, notification previews, oh, and Google Now integration for all!" The list of changes also mentions a new widget picker that matches the other new design elements that use Android 8.0's looks.

The current version of the app is 26.1, and it became available on July 28. The Google Play store page of the Action Launcher app also reveals that this piece of code has been installed by more than 1,000,000 users. Action Launcher 26.1 requires Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or later to work properly and has a rating of 4.2 stars after almost 80,000 users reviews.

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.
