Version 2 brings a few changes, and of course the much awaited free version.

The biggest change in the app is the introduction of the Quick page which you can access by swiping from the right edge of the screen. And 1-Swipe, which enables the Quick drawer and aforementioned Quickpage from any app.

Here is a change log of what is new in V2 of Action Launcher Pro

  • Action Launcher no longer requires a purchase, and is available for everyone to use!
  • Quickpage: a fully featured home screen accessible from the right edge of the screen.
  • 1-Swipe: access the Quickdrawer and Quickpage from any app on your device, whether Action Launcher is running or not.
  • Use Android 4.4’s dock and folder style.
  • Translucent status and navigation bars (requires Android 4.4).
  • Activity picker.
  • A wealth of bug fixes and optimizations.
