Note: This does *NOT* work with Action Launcher 3. It only works with the legacy Action Launcher 2: Pro app. Please see Action Launcher 3's in-app FAQ for why Action Launcher 3 does not support unread count functionality. Unread Count enables Action Launcher 2: Pro users to display unread badges for certain apps like Gmail, SMS, Phone and Calendar.
Please be aware this feature is currently in beta.
Note: Unread Count is a background application. You will not see a shortcut for it in Action Launcher or any other launcher.
