LauncherPro Updates in the Works: Screen Transitions this Week, Gmail Widget Next

Anyone ready for a LauncherPro update?  Been a while right?  With Fede currently hacking away at his full re-write, he still wanted to feed his followers and will in fact do that this week and next.  We’ve received word that he’ll first be dropping an update on us all this week (today or tomorrow?) that will include fancy screen transitions, which we have to assume will be similar to those seen on ADW EX.  He’ll then follow that up with an update that we wish was available from day one for Plus users:  a Gmail widget.  Yep, you read that right.  LauncherPro Plus users should have a Gmail widget to enjoy some time next week.

Happy?

All credit to Tato for the scoop.

    The transitions are nice but would be even better if would add more like how “multipicture live wallpaper” has them.

    And Fede if you read this, please please please implement a simpler way to use gestures. Like ADW EX or Go launcher EX.

    i’d like to see facebook notifications on the dock like you can do with the messaging

    I too have never used a laucher app, does Launcher Pro work with your current screens. What are the benefits?

  • WTF

    Never used a launcher app. I have a D2. Not sure why you would need one in the first place.

    Hope the Blur quick contacts distortion bug on DX has been fixed. Otherwise love LPP and look forward to this update!

    Gmail widget might get me to switch back from ADW Ex. The LPP widgets work and look great. I cant wait for the full rewrite, performance is the biggest knock on LP over ADW.

  • Famoustgun7

    Awesome!!!! I love LP!! Purchased the PRo just to support Fede! He’s always got something up his sleeve that out does everyone else! Cant wait!!!

    GDE has had transitions since I started using it in May of 2010. I’ve never seen GDE featured. Also, it has scrollable dock widgets that are really cool.

  • versusxiii

    I loved the LP Plus widgets until I found Pure Messenger Widget. It combines text/email/Facebook/Twitter/calls etc. in to one big scrolling list. Now I just use that plus Colorize Widget Agenda on ADW Ex.

    Also, Colorize Widget does a lot of things the LP Plus widgets do and is free in the Market.

    Its always nice to find new things, though I’ll have to try LP Plus once the re-write is done and ready! :)

    Why can Fede create a user experience like non-other? He LISTENS to user feedback. Not just that, but you can talk to virtually ANY android user and ask what they want in a UI, and you will generally hear the same things. He is an obvious Android user that knows what he wants, which is usually what we want. Keep up the fantasic work!

  • uncle paul

    I wont be able to switch back from adw ex until we have a left-right app drawer.

    Bah, I am really liking Go Launcher and it performs better. I’ll wait for the rewrite to retry Launcher Plus.

    I would enjoy the gmail widget if I can flip between different gmail accounts…but what I’d really love would be a gtasks widget. For the time being, I gotta stick with gTasks

    • Anonymous

      Take a look at Pure Calendar Widget. It works well with gtasks…also, will integrate all of your google calendars and your exchange calendar. The widgets are highly customizable too (themes, transparency, etc..)

    Hells yeah! can’t wait! LPP ftw

  • Ecffighter7232

    wonder if these screen transitions will be similar to those on ApeX_1.3.1 on the Droid X… or if they will overwrite the ones that ApeX is using

      This is changing home screens. Apex goes further into it by modifying actual OS transitions throughout the UI. So your answer is no:)

      Launcher Pro is free in the Market. Launcher Pro Plus is what costs money.
