Action Launcher 3 uses material design to reinvent many elements of your home screen and increase the ease with which you access applications.
Streamlines the home screen experience: Action Launcher 3 makes the Android home screen faster and more functional by enhancing it with a Quickdrawer, a kind of left-hand sidebar you can bring up with a swipe and which facilitates access to any app on your device by listing all apps in alphabetical order. The Covers feature, which uses the concept of folders to group similar apps under the same icon, makes each available with a tap. The paid version also has Shutters, which shows you an app's widget whenever you swipe on that respective app's icon.
Quicktheme: This feature extracts the colors from your current wallpaper and unify the folder backgrounds, Google search box, and Quickdrawer, maintaining a harmony between the colors so that no home screen UI element seems out of place. What's great about this feature is that it works even with rotating backgrounds.
Outstanding performance: In our tests, the app ran as smoothly as the default Android Lollipop launcher, never lagging, crashing, or stuttering.
Learning curve: While Action Launcher isn't hard to use, the lack of an integrated tutorial when you first launch the app means you have to figure out on your own how to use features, such as Covers or how to rearrange app icons and layout.
Free version not powerful enough: To fully enjoy this app you have to upgrade to the Pro version.
With its ingenious features and excellent performance, Action Launcher 3 can be a great replacement for the default launcher, one that can streamline your user experience to help you access your apps faster.
