Abandoned! Dev has abandoned this launcher and more importantly, HIS CUSTOMERS. No updates in almost a year, and no word on updates after HUNDREDS of pleas for news from him. Is it a good launcher? Sure, if your device is as outdated as this app is. But don't plan on this app running well on Gingerbread, and DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT RUNNING IT ON ICS. And if you want to support an honest and hardworking developer, GIVE YOUR MONEY TO SOMEONE ELSE! Federico Carnales has been shady, rude, greedy, and irresponsible.
Great App! Facing issues after ICS update though! Great app and does exactly what I need it to do. Clean interface and the performance is top notch, you wouldn't be able to tell that it's not the stock launcher! I'd have given this a 5-star rating, however I have come across an issue after my update to ICS. The Power Savings widget freaked out on me (I had it set on one of the side screens) so I proceeded to delete it and then re-add it. The deleting went by smoothly but the re-adding part, not so much. It seems I can no longer add widgets on ANY of the homescreens after the ICS update.
Very close but. . . . This is a great app. It will remove everything from your home screens when downloaded so be ready to set all your screens up again. This app will make your home screens very customize able. The trade a off is you loose some of the features the phone came stock with. For example on my Droid Razr I can not get my favorite contacts widget to show up on the screen. Also lost the ability to drag the boarder of Widgets around to change there shape or size. Can no longer drag apps or Widgets from screen to screen
Keep it simple, fast and stable! I use LauncherPro (with the old-style Plus key) for simplicity and speed. Don't want or need Sense-like widgets, put them in a separate app as far as I'm concerned. But LauncherPro itself is smooth and the flip effects are nice. The freezing at startup issue seems to be resolved now, too. There's still a bug if you rotate the device while the app drawer is open though. I guess that'll have to wait for the rewrite.
STILL THE BEST!!! I'm using the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 I think i have tried just about every launcher out there that would work on this device. I always come back to LauncherPro. When it comes to buttery smoothness and battery life, it just can't be beat. You want a prettier or more feature laden launcher, well it's out there. But if you want simple, get it done, clean interface launcher, then this is it.
Best Launcher out there. I played around with a lot of launchers, from Go Launcher to ADW Launcher. Now these launchers are pretty good. They provide a lot of customization for user. But I felt they offered to much customization, so I played a lot with the launchers and felt that I was never happy. The LauncherPro is a fantastic launcher for me. It give's me a lot to customise but not too much that I'm playing around with it for hours. It's simple and easy too. The GUI is very slick and effective, and hasn't lagged on me like other launchers did at times. I'd suggest you pay the 2 pounds for the extra widgets since their useful and since Sense widgets won't work. Kudos to the maker! Brilliant launcher.
