LauncherPro Update is Live, Screen Transitions Included (Updated)

Just as we said this morning, a LauncherPro update including fancy screen transitions would be out this week and sure enough, it’s ready and in the market.  We’re installing ours now, so keep close to this post as we’ll have more…  

Update 1:  To access these new screen transitions head to Menu>Preferences>Homescreen Settings.

Update 2:  I attempted to show off each transition using ShootMe’s new screencasting feature, but it just can’t keep up. It at least shows you how to set up your phone to have transitions though.

Update 3:  So now the debate continues…ADW EX or LauncherPro?

Cheers BMac!

    Has anyone modded this version of LauncherPro to have those cool GingerBread style calendars? I’d love to utilize these with those.

    Those transitions were in LiveHome long ago, which made me switch from LauncherPro. ;-)

    I am liking .ADW Launcher EX these days, I have it on a few of my custom ROMs.

    It looks like you can also add your motorola social widgets through Launcher Pro now. This is great!

    I like that the selection boxes swing up. That’s a neat thing.

    OMG.!! Every since i installed the update my phone feels like someone slipped a dual core processor in it atleast when you are using the scale transition homescreen. My launcher is lightning fast now

    been using go launcher for a few weeks now and loving it. i could not stand the constant redraws (constant). this looks cool though and i will have to check it out. i just hope this awesome developer finishes his complete rebuild soon and the redraw issue is fixed. og droid.

    I’ve never meen a fan of LP. I used to use ADW quite a bit, to the point of donating to AndersWeb. But around the time of Android 2.2/Themes, ADW got really laggy. So I ditched it. After seeing this post, I tried both LP and ADW again today and both were laggy. But I also downloaded Go Launcher. I’ve used it for less than half a day, but I think I like it a lot. Seems to be what ADW was pre-2.2/themes… I *do* wish these replacement home apps would let us import our setups from other home apps so that we didn’t have to place all the widgets/apps on the screens over and over again…

      i don’t know if having more than two or three launcher programs would be part of the problem. they might be trying to use the same files as each other making them both laggy (like using two music programs at the same time).

      i’d try completely installing one or the other and see what happens

      I agree. I’ve always experienced significant lag with Launcher Pro and to a lesser degree, but still anoyingly so, with ADW launcher. I switched to Go Launcher for a while, but then settled upon Zeam. I really love Go SMS though. Hands down the best SMS client.

      I have a Droid X now instead of an Original Droid, I’m sure launcher pro probably would run smooth now, but I like the simplicity of Zeam very much and won’t be parting with it anytime soon.

    I hope the recording software is the reason for that lag. Anyways, downloading now.

    LauncherPro needs to implement gesture mapping. Swipe Up/Down, Double Click, etc. As of now, I’ve removed my App Drawer from my dock and just use Swipe Up to access it. Swipe Down shows my notifications.
