Action Launcher v45 adds Android 10 gesture navigation support, ActionDash enhancements, and more

The initial Android 10 release wasn't playing nicely with third-party launchers — to use the new navigation gestures, you were forced to stick with Google's Pixel Launcher. The December feature drop (which sadly still hasn't arrived on all Pixel phones) changed that and finally added gesture navigation support for third-party solutions.

However, Google hasn't provided new numbers since May of this year, leaving us in the dark about how Android 10's rollout was going, but one company has stepped up to the plate - PornHub.

Fossil's fifth-gen smartwatches showcase Wear OS at its best (Update: four months later)

Google's Wear OS platform is in a bit of a weird place. The operating system itself is still being periodically updated with new features and improvements, like the Tiles function that was released in May, but the third-party app library is still minimal, and Qualcomm has been slow to improve the underlying hardware. Still, Wear OS isn't going anywhere, and the closest thing to a flagship watch is the new fifth-generation Fossil Q lineup.
