Once Loved... This was my "go to" launcher since I first started with Android devices over 2 years ago, but I've since gone to Go Launcher EX, as the developement and support for this app has fallen by the wayside. The lack of updates and support has made this launcher antiquated in comparison to some of the other launchers out there. All I can say is....move on to something else until the developer decides to get with it.
Already see a difference I downloaded this launcher app because of a post someone put up about how to make ur Android faster. I can't wait until I'm able to get a phone that has Ice Cream or the newest version for that matter. I have the Samsung Transform and I got the chance to play on my mothers phone (Samsung Galaxy S II) I am so jealous. But now with this app my transform is moving sooo smooth and soooo fast. Thank you LauncherPro. Now I can stop bugging my husband for a new phone. :)
Best app on the market! I have had the paid version of LP for a while now. First on my Eris, and now on my Incredible. Every now and then I'll try to go back to plain Sense for a while, but I keep coming back to LauncherPro. Sense has 3 (non-customizable) shortcuts on it's launcher. Whereas LauncherPro has 15 (very customizable) shortcuts on it's launcher. That alone is worth the money. All of my most used apps go on the Launcher bar, leaving tons of free screen space for big widgets like the calendar and facebook. Get this app!!!
launcher pro more stable than adw - imho I tested launcher pro and adw launcher for several weeks. I also purchased the plus and ex versions of both, so the contest was pretty close. In the end, I found that launcher pro was more stable. My favorite feature is the dock bar. I had some odd things happen with ADW. For example, the music player would start playing when I adjusted the handset volume.Your experience may be different. They are both nice.
would rate 4.75 if I could perfect blend of speed, customizing and battery life. I was using adw ex until it started getting buggy and my battery was suffering. currently my phone has been on for 8 hrs with 2 hrs streaming pandora, 1 hour of streaming video minor text and phone use and I have 70% life left. the only feature I would like is to be able to individually change icon pics that are not in the dock
Long time - no update High time for an update I think! Update: Just tried using it once again after an year or so. Surprisingly it was still blazing fast and good looking. However widgets like FB need updates (news feed includes ticker news), app crashed continuously after trying to use calendar widget (I only have S Planner).
- NEW Support for icon packs.
- NEW Real homescreen looping (enabled by default, you can disable in Preferences > Appearance Preferences).
- NEW Option to hide homescreen icon label backgrounds.
- Scrolling performance improvements.
- Fixed an issue with 3rd party scrollable widgets on some HTC phones.
- Fixed a visual glitch when using Light caches and the "Flip" transition.
- Fixed hidden apps reappearing when they're updated.
Productivity meets style. Fast and beautiful launcher that keeps you organized.
