Download: LauncherPro Plus

By now almost all of you have tried or at least heard of LauncherPro.  And when I say “all” I’m talking about the over 250,000 of you who downloaded it.  This is the home replacement app that essentially took the Android world by storm when the developer behind it created something similar to the Launcher 2 which at one time was only available and workable on the Nexus One.  LauncherPro, most would argue, is faster and more efficient than any other launcher on the planet.

Today, the developer (Fede Carnales) has released a paid version which now includes a contact widget similar to the one from HTC’s SenseUI.  In the future, he plans on adding more…

  • Bookmarks Widget – Quick access to your browser’s bookmarks
  • Friends Widget – Lists your friend’s status updates from Facebook and Twitter, and lets you update your own status too.
  • Calendar/Agenda Widget – Shows you a calendar you can scroll through to switch months, and also lets you see your agenda for any particular day right within the widget.
  • Messaging – Scroll through a list of your SMS messages or one by one. Quick links to delete messages, reply, etc.

So where can you get this app?  It is currently not in the market since Fede lives in a country that will not allow for paid apps to be sold.  You can however, buy it straight from his site.  The opening price is $2.99, but once he adds the rest of the widgets listed above, the price will start going up, so get in now and support one of the top devs in Android!

  • Txtaz35

  • JulipsyDreams

    is LauncherProPlus significantly better/smoother/faster etc than Home++? because I've been using that one which is free with they're new power strip and together i cant find many problems, but i am tempted to get this just to support the cause 🙂

    is there any way to purchase this without using pay pal

    If you're having problems with seeing your contacts pictures from FB, try the free app syncmypix. After using it, majority of my icons using launcherpro have pictures attached.

      Edit — What I'm trying to say is if you have contact pictures from FB but can't see them using people widget, then try using syncmypix to fix it.

    $2.99 is nothing, especially to contribute to a Dev who has done a great job with one of the premier launchers available.

    Please make an option available on the people widget to hide the names of the contacts. The way it is now, 1/3 of their faces are cut off due to the names being displayed (I'll post this on his support forum as well).

    Either way, LauncherPro has been my launcher of choice for a while now, so a few bucks is a small contribution for his efforts.

  • I am still new at this but downloading and installing this LPP was easy as could be and soooo worth the price!
    Love it!

  • Annoynimous

    Milestone and DroidX users need this, because there is no longer a freedom to install custom updates and ROMs, there won't be Froyo launcher anytime soon and this is the next best thing!

    (stock launcher sucks no matter what, remember that!! and Motorola sucks with updates, free the bootloader!!)

  • I wish that this would have stayed free, now is going to open the flood gates for premium launchers to come out at a cost and the fantastic free launchers that we all know an love will become the lite versions of the launchers that we have now

  • skeezicks

    Couldn't get this to work until I downloaded it with Skyfire. That's all well and good, but cheez, it's certainly not ready for prime time if you've got to take two steps (with research in between) to simply install the program. Pretty amateur.

    Having installed Launcher Pro, I've gotta say, ADW.Launcher is still faster and smoother. No doubt, these guys will trade top spot as they continue to refine their programs, but if I were marooned on a desert isle, I'd take ADW over Launcher Pro.

  • Mrpicolas

    heres a dock and app drawer icon that i have made for us droid lifers if you guys want this let kellex know

    • Michael_NM

      Nice work sir! You've taken your “mod” status to a new dimension! 🙂

    • Mrpicolas
      • Chris Nimon

        This is definitely not gonna sound right but I like your drawers lol. Is this a modded launcher or your very own? Id like to see the 3d icons from the second version on the first version

        • Mrpicolas

          This is launcher pro with custom dock backgrounds and icons I sent Kellex
          all of this stuff hopefully if enough people want it hell post it

          • Chris Nimon

            I like that. Can you make the purple glass into black glass? Couldnt you put your themes on MegaUploader? Hell, your one of Kellex's golden children lol, get a few themes put together and im sure he'll put them out there for ya. I plan on buying this launcher when I get back from Chicago thursday. Wouldnt mind throwing the launcher and theme on when I get back. Looks pretty sweet.

          • Chris Nimon

            Im definitely liking that new one with the circle edges, has a nice clean look to it

          • Mrpicolas

            The middle is cut out needs a better wallpaper to see it better

          • Chris Nimon

            oh yeah, i see it now. throw it on a solid black or something. your showing your launcher goodies not the wallpaper.

        • Mrpicolas

          its up now

      • DonInTexas

        Okay, I'm sold!

    • Chris Nimon

      Any body interested in MrPicolas themes for Launcher Pro – “LIKE” his post so we can get Kellex to set it up for us.

    • Thom Schwenkler

      How do I get these?

    • Esh

      yess i want it!

  • Chris Nimon

    If this acts like Sense but isnt, I think he should have named it NonSense. 🙂

    • Michael_NM

      Way to throw in your two “sense.” 🙂

      • Chris Nimon

        Lol, i see what you did there 🙂

  • Ok so if I install this, is there a way to copy all of my custom shortcuts from helix launcher over to LP?

  • Alex9483

    I was having trouble having downloading , it would not accept the supplied username and password. I downloaded and tried Skyfire with no luck. For the heck of it I changed the keyboard I was using, from Swiftkey to Touch Input. I typed in the username and password and it WORKED!

  • Looks awesome! My only reservation is speed; normally replacement launchers run slower than the stock one. Anybody have anything to say about that?

    • That's my concern as well. The droid x stock ui isn't bad. Of course i've never used anything else though.

  • Resident_Psycho

    Paid! I don't mind supporting devs for great apps, especially since there are LOADS of free apps out there, I don't mind paying for good ones. Love this launcher, works great with my phone, moto droid..rooted 2.2 froyo bugless beast v04 nextheme chevyNo1 1.1ulv kernal and Launcher Pro PLUS!!!
