Warning: this episode contains coarse language.

It's the fourth annual "… of the year" extravaganza, in which Jesse Wilson and I each bestow 20 highly coveted and equally made up awards based on 2016's technology news.

Some of the awards include classics like “moonwalk of the year” and “lipstick on a pig of the year”, as well as new entries like “you dropped the ball at the finish line of the year” and special one I felt obliged to add for myself titled “biggest personal egg on face moment of the year”.

32: 📚 Action Launcher in 2016: the story so far with Jesse Wilson

Download | Subscribe

Jesse Wilson returns to the show to chat all things Action Launcher with me.

Topics include why there was more than 6 months between Action Launcher updates to start the year and what I learnt going so long between updates. I also discuss my pushing to release the Pixel Launcher inspired update so quickly after the leaks arrived, how the update was received by press and customers alike. Oh, and I both tease a major feature I withheld from a recent update and find a (valid!) excuse to talk about hidden menu items at In-N-Out Burger.

Note: this episode was recorded after early September's Action Launcher 3.9's update but before late September's 3.10 update.

The tables are turned, as I become the topic of conversation, leaving my guest Jesse Wilson to drive and pose the questions during in-depth discussion about the recently released Action Launcher 3.5 update.

We of course dig into the nitty-gritty of this update, where I discuss my motivations for developing Action Launcher 3's new Quickbar feature, how much of a struggle this update was for me to develop and why, how the launch has been received and more.

Jesse also asks me what motivated me to start writing Action Launcher in the first place, we discuss details on features from Action Launcher 2 that haven't made it to Action Launcher 3, and I offer my perspective on Google Now as a launcher feature, and discuss whether I feel such support will ever come to Action Launcher.
