Action Launcher allows you to import from your existing layout from other launchers such as Apex, Nova, Google Now Launcher, HTC Sense, Samsung/Galaxy One UI/TouchWiz and the stock Android launcher, so you'll instantly feel right at home.

Action Launcher may request access to the Accessibility Service API for specific gesture functionality such as turning off the screen or opening the notification panel. Enabling access is optional, disabled by default, can be revoked at any time, and neither collects nor shares any data.

It's alright. I like its clean interface, many customization options, and I wanted to have this on for months to come. But there are problems: First, the launcher can be glitchy, because my search bars sometimes look like literal rectangles. Second, my layout reset twice, so I had to redo everything. Still has potential, but my heart isn't in it right now.

I like the idea of it. It has all the options Id expect in addition to some unique (& very useful) features that make it stand out. Love having sidebars especially. Unfortunately, it just doesn't run right. VERY slow/choppy & glitchy. Running on Android 11/ Nokia X100. Other launchers run fine. Hopefully these issues get resolved cause there's a lot of potential here. Things to add imo would be ability to choose folder icons & search bar in icon picker. Will try again later on.

I've been using this launcher for many years now. I love the ability to swipe up from an icon to see a related widget. I'm getting tired of performance issues. Over time, the launcher will bog down and I have to kill the app to get it running well again. This has been happening with increasing frequency over the last 2 years on multiple different phones. I tried contacting support about the performance issues a few weeks ago and never heard back. So I'm dropping my rating again.
