The ubiquitous search box widget at the top of your Android mobile device is getting some new tricks. Chris Lacy, creator of the Action Launcher app, announced the release of Action Launcher 3.5 on Tuesday. The new version builds on AL 3.0, which allowed users to match the widget's color to their background theme (as well as the app drawer) or scroll through an alphabetical app list accessible from the home screen. The app also features slick shortcuts for both folders and widgets called covers and shutters, respectively. And with the release of AL 3.5, users can fully customize the search box by incorporating apps, shortcuts and even menu groups directly into the bar itself.

"I'm very happy with how the Quickbar has turned out," Lacy wrote on a Google+ post. "It may not look like it, but this feature was an absolutely mammoth design and engineering undertaking." And from the looks of this update, why stick with Google's stock launcher?
