Action Launcher is considered as one of the best flexible and convenient launchers available for Android phones.  Now Action Launcher has merely gained its initial beta for version 28 with a number of improvements.  One of the main change is the support for Adaptive Icons, which is one of the key aspects that introduced in Android Oreo.

The creator of Action Launcher application, Chris Lacy shared in his blog post about the latest version improvements. This new version of Action launcher includes 5 diverse Adaptive Icon variations that will be available to end users for a more standard appearance. Lacy also stated that he is currently working on Android Oreo’s widget pinning. These 5 Icon variations include rounded square, square, teardrop, circle and squircle. Using the “Adaptive Icons” section in Action launcher settings, users can conveniently modify these 5 icons.  Only users with Oreo powered device will get this feature.

Another notable improvement on this new version will be detailed Android personalization.  This feature will delight users who love customization.
