LauncherPro Update with Skinning Support Hits Market

The beta version for LauncherPro with skinning support was released at the end of the last week, so many of you have already had a chance to enjoy some of the early released skins.  It’s time to check your My Apps page in the Market though, because the official version just went live.  Gotta stay up-to-date, right?  I should point out that other than this new skinning support, Fede also reduced the memory usage of LP in hopes of cutting out those random force closes.

    What about those of us that purchased launcher pro plus the old way? with putting the product code from our emails in…do we still have to purchase the “launcher pro plus” from the market? because i downloaded a skin and for the life of me can’t find a place to apply it!

    Updated this and downloaded some of Signals23’s skins! I really like the Honeycomb one.

    installed, immediately forced close again and subsequently another five times in about three minutes. I prefer Launcher Pro Plus over any other launcher, but I’m tired of continually uninstalling and reinstalling it only for it to constantly force close. Sticking with Go Launcher EX for now, hopefully when Fede gets the rewrite done the issues will be fixed and I can go back to Launcher Pro Plus. Droid X Gingerbread.

    • Bigsike

      I too have the DX Gingerbread and it worked flawlessly no force close and the speed is increased greatly :)

    i do like that you can choose a skin for each widget so each one can be different however i dont like how it is done. i’d like to choose in the previews rather than somewhere i dont necessarily get to see what they look like. hopefully this can get implemented into a update

    my question is though, any progress he’s making here, isnt that going to become useless once he finishes his rewrite? (if it ever gets done lol)

    id rather see him put some work in a tablet version rather than sprucing up the phone version, and i dont even have a tablet yet

    GIVE US THE RE-WRITE ;)

    Awesome work as usual Federico. +1 +1 +1.

    I’m not sure if i should switch to this or wait for new sense 2.0 skins.

  • Imadroid

    cant update on Thunderbolt. says package not signed correctly and won’t install???

    • garrett

      are you using a skinned version of the app already?

    • asdf

      Do you have one of Signals modded versions installed? If so, you have to uninstall that first before you install the one from the market. Make sure you back up homescreens.

    • Imadroid

      AhHa….that it….I was running the skinned version. Guess I should have thought of that. Thanks for the help guys.

      You can still use your unlock code, so there is no point of bothering to get the unlocker from the market, unless if you decide to think of it as a donation and buy the unlocker anyway.

        well i dont like having to type it in all the time lol

        • Muddy B00ts

          I flash a lot of roms, and to avoid having to unlock, just make a backup. preferences>backup homescreens and settings. It backs it up to the sd card, and you never have to type it in again. The backup will remember the code.

          Backup your settings and you will be on the Plus version when you restore.

      “If you purchased LauncherPro Plus on Paypal, you don’t need the new unlocker at all.”
      Go view the fede’s website for info ;]

    Most excellent, I’ve had LP+ running on my OG droid as soon as I saw it here. I’ve got the TB now and am enjoying Sense… but would like to run LP+ on my zoom… it would be nice if Fede worked this home replacement for tablets too.

    I still use my joe dirt skin..
    You know, the one with the wiener tucked back..

    Hey Google…

    See what Fede did here?

    How ’bout skinning support for Android? Whadayasay?

    • EC8CH

      see also HTC Sense 3.0 ;-)

    I’m done buying apps.. i’ll wait for it to be free on amazon’s app store rofl.

    Yea, anyone know where to get some skins for Pro Plus?

    • http://zombine.com Dr. Zombine

      Search LauncherPro in the market and just keep scrolling, or even, search signals23 on the market. Signals23 already has a good amount of his own skins on the market.

    • napes22

      Search for “S23″ on the market. Signals23 has labeled all of his skin uploads with S23.

  • Mth2134

    Damn. Fede is friggin dedicated. Talk about standing by your app. +1 Fede. And please get LP pro to support him.

    • Mth2134

    “Fede also reduced the memory usage of LP….”

    10x more valuable to me than skins. But even more so, is reducing the screen lag and redraw that can take 2-3-4-5 seconds on the D1

    • http://twitter.com/kirilv Kiril

      that also depends on how many services/apps you have running. fede can reduce LP’s memory usage, but not your phone’s.

      try a new ROM. when i was on stock, everything always got closed by the OS, but with pete’s gingerbread, he fixed how memory is handled, and now i hardly ever get an app that is closed by the OS. the D1 needs special care in that regard.

    • http://twitter.com/kenbarnum kenbarnum

      This is a fix I’ve been using on EVERY new rom I run and it works perfectly to remove the redraw on my phone:

    All these months and Launcher Pro is still force closing? Zeam launcher is the way to go.

    • napes22

      I’m pretty sure all programs force close here and there. There are plenty of us that are loyal to Fede and still enjoy LP. So maybe you should edit your post to say “Zeam Launcher is the way to go for me.”

        wow.. you just tried to pull a Jedi mind trick on Jon

      Have you talked to the dev about the FC issues? I have none here with LP+ on my Liberty rom’d DX and my wife runs LP+ 24/7 on her stock 2.2.1 DX.

  • Ace87

    How do we find skins? I don’t see a link anywhere
