This Apple-Influenced, Aussie-Made Android Launcher Sure Is Sexy

Not happy with the current batch of Android launchers? Neither was developer Chris Lacy, best known for the app Tweet Lanes, so he made his own. Due out within a week, the Brisbane coder’s “Action Launcher” looks slick, clean and best of all, practical.

Lacy mentions in a short interview with Ausdroid that he drew upon “the simplicity and ease-of-use of Apple’s products” when crafting the launcher, a methodology he applies to all his apps. His goal with Action Launcher was to create something “your iPhone-loving uncle can pick up” and “intuitively know how to operate”.

As Ausdroid mentions, the most notable feature of the launcher (visible in the lead image) is the top-docked action bar. If you prefer Android’s default search bar, then Action Launcher might not be for you, but if you like icon shortcuts, well, it’s worth a look.
