Action Launcher Now Also Offers Adaptive Icon Support Via New $5 AdaptivePack App

thumbnail

One of the big features inside of Oreo is Adaptive Icons. It’s essentially a native customization tool for icons, allowing a user to switch between different shapes for 3rd-party app icons. The only problem is, not many will be using Oreo until way down the road, and on top of that, the developers have to support this feature by creating an adaptive icon then updating their app. Enter 3rd-party launcher developers, who are finding ways to bring Adaptive Icons to all Android users, regardless of ...

Into the Dead 2 looks like a much more elaborate affair, with a stronger narrative, crafted levels, and deeper gameplay. That’s what the press release says, anyway.
