The Official Launcher Pro discussion thread
ok seeing as how it seems that there is a new thread regarding Launcher Pro every day, I figured we could give it it's own stickied discussion thread to help keep all of the related questions, concerns, updates and feature discussions all in 1 thread to help eliminate some of the clutter.
I haven't used the newest version, i like ADW a lot so probably won't be switching over (please don't throw the tomatoes ) but i hear a lot of good things about it. The settings, the widgets and the more features seem to be added frequently by the talented Developer. I can't really add too much to the discussion but that's where you guys come in.
so...... GAME ON!!! haha enjoy

I am using it on the EVO 4G with stock Froyo. I got tired of Sense and tried out Launcher Pro. I combined it with Beautiful Widgets and WidgetLocker and it works great. The EVO starts faster than with Sense Home Page. I like that I can customize anyway I want. If I want to go back to Sense for a while I can switch it very easily. I use the application ClearDefaultHome (works with Froyo) to clear out defaults and load whichever home screen I want to use.

I used Launcher Pro when it first debuted and loved it. However, I switched to ADW due to chronic screen redraw issues. I just swithed back and couldn't be happier. THe launcher nearly never closes and my phone is running much much faster. Even faster than with the stock launcher. The widgets are beautiful and I can't wait for the next updates!gtalk: Sethjk

I have 5 icons in the dock of launcher pro right now, all working fine. I replaced the app drawer link/shortcut in the dock with something else thinking that I could put the app drawer shortcut on another page since I don't use it that often. Can't figure out how to do that. Is there a way? Am I using the right terminology?

You can put a shortcut and a swipe gesture on each dock location. For instance, on the middle button I replaced the shortcut to launch phone when pressed as thats what I am used to on Sense. I also applied s swipe up gesture to launch app drawer on the same button. A single press and you get the phone, a swipe up and you get apps. Tellin ya! Launcher Pro is the bees knees!

So I just installed LauncherPro. I have to say I'm VERY impressed. There is something that is annoying me and might be a deal breaker... No way to use the Friendstream widget... Not even the HTC Twitter app Peep widget either. Is there a way to use it?? Would I have to purchase the plus version to get it??

Tried the LauncherPro Plus (paid unlock of the free version). Caused some weirdness after installed. I would advise folks to clear off their home screens before loading the LP+. It zaps whatever was there anyway, but in fact, the original screens aren't gone. They re-appear if you uninstall LP+.
When LP+ is added, some of the widgets don't work right or are extremely slow - for example the Moto widget "Contact quick tasks", which I use for all family members. I'd guess the fact there were a bunch of these on my original home screens and then another bunch added to the LP+ home screens caused conflicts.
Ultimately, I uninstalled LP+ (sadly, I have to add). Loved the 15-icon revolving dock and all the customization that was possible, including the number of home screens. Might try again later, but if I do, it will be with clean home screens to start. Hopefully, this will make a difference. Otherwise, though, the app functioned very well. And, is a LOT of FUN to play with.Always learning ...
