Today, Chris Lacy updated his popular launcher, Action Launcher Pro. It includes quite a bit of fixes, here’s the full changelog from the Play Store:

What’s in this version:

NEW: Drag apps & widgets from the quickdrawer directly to a Home screen. This massively improves your customization workflow.
NEW: Lock/unlock desktop.
NEW: Shutters, a groundbreaking new feature that automatically puts widgets just a swipe away. (Note that due to Android API limitations, shutters require Android 4.1 or later)
NEW: Full tablet support.
NEW: WAY more features than Google will let me list here. See here for a full breakdown: http://bit.ly/WZtfzP
