1. Buy the plus for $2.99 SO WORTH IT

2. Make sure you use 15 scrollable dock icons

3.use the swipe gestures for the dock cons (makes for 30 total actions)

Go to the launcher pro website and read the forums...... I got my dock background there.

(popup is for plus users.....

Any docks somewhat look like the Sense one? I found LauncherPro, notwithstanding its customization options, to be a bit boring having gotten so used to Sense. I paid for Pro, used it for a few weeks, and went back to Sense. A month later tried it again, and it still felt like something what missing, so back to Sense I went. I think it's the overall look.

Any tips to spice it up?

What exactly does sense do that impressed you that launcher doesnt do.

As for what launcher does that sense doesnt , here are some of my faves:

1. scrolling dock. 15 spots that you can customize. I use app organizer folders for 5 of them.... I have every app I use frequently at my finger tips much closer.

2. popups. New feature with a bookmark popup. Dont have to use an entire homescreen for bookmarks.

3. Launcher widgets. Love the twitter/facebook one. Love the contacts one.

4. dock backgrounds...... I use a football field one right now and most of my icons are droids with a small logo ont hem..... looks like a droid football team.... love it

5. swipe gestures for dock icons. each ofthe 15 can have a different action when you swipe instead of touch. I use popus and such for these...... truly awesome.

I cant think of anything I miss about the sense launcher experience. It was good, but Launcher Pro Plus is great.

I guess other than the GPS widget, which appears irreplaceable, not a ton. I just like the look of the Sense bar at the bottom, even though it's rather useless except for Phone.

I also felt like I was getting worse battery life and some random issues with LP. I use WidgetLocker for my lock screen, and with all these apps on top of Sense, something just felt "off."

Agreed. I miss the dock. I just found its look a bit bland. I tried all the built in options, and none impressed me. Maybe I need to check out some dock backgrounds.

As a big user of the HTC Bookmarks widget, I'll admit this sounds cool.

Can you just have it display Twitter? I don't want my rather small Twitter feed (I use it for sports/tech news only) cluttered with my hundreds of useless Facebook status updates (I'm far less interested in what some guy I met 4 years ago is doing for lunch today).

Do you accidentally swipe a lot, causing actions to occur you didn't want? Seems like it could be an issue, but perhaps not?

I use tasker and can turn GPS on/off with a widget made thought tasker. However, I dont use GPS often.

I also felt like I was getting worse battery life and some random issues with LP. I use WidgetLocker for my lock screen, and with all these apps on top of Sense, something just felt "off."


I set Sense at the blank theme before going into launcher. Between that and the recent updates, I dont see any battery life issues.

Agreed. I miss the dock. I just found its look a bit bland. I tried all the built in options, and none impressed me. Maybe I need to check out some dock backgrounds.


If you go to the Launcherpro website I think you can find dock backgrounds that look nicer than Sense and you can change what the buttons do.

As a big user of the HTC Bookmarks widget, I'll admit this sounds cool.

The popup I have as a swipe gesture on my internet icon..... easy to remember and no need for bookmark widget.

Can you just have it display Twitter? I don't want my rather small Twitter feed (I use it for sports/tech news only) cluttered with my hundreds of useless Facebook status updates (I'm far less interested in what some guy I met 4 years ago is doing for lunch today).

He has twitter, facebook, and friends (both facebook and twiiter) widgets.

haha, I will have to explore this further.


With the newest versions, i am able to change the icons to anything I want... custom icons, pics, whatever...... I got a set of droid icons on another site someone made.... they are sweet


Do you accidentally swipe a lot, causing actions to occur you didn't want? Seems like it could be an issue, but perhaps not?

I havent had that problem. Once or twice I clicked the icon when I meant to swipe, but even that is rare.

I guess just the clean look and some of the widgets.
I have fancy widgets (which I dont use) and honestly, it was the only widget I used from HTC. (wait, I used bookmarks too). I use Pure Messenger widget and with Launcher it is scrollable. I use it with K9 for all my email. LOVE IT TOO.

I bought Beautiful Widgets to use with WidgetLocker, and must say, even with Sense, I still use it over the HTC Weather widget. It's much more customizable and fun to play with. Well worth the $2.

Other than that, you don't really need to buy anything because LP has all the HTC widgets except the settings ones, but I use Quick Settings, which I happen to like even better than widgets. Hold the Search button for 2 seconds and a list of all your settings (also customizable) pops up from anywhere you are in Android. This one's free.

LauncherPro Plus definitely a 5 star app. I recommend an app called LauncherPro Icons in the market. It brings together many icons and docks for easy installation and quick customization.

I got excited until I saw the price tag. I realize $2 is not much money, but icons should be free or close thereto.

You dont NEED to buy anything else

Id suggest buying launcher pro plus..... it IS worth it.


Otherwise, if you read up and ask around, you can get anything you need mostly for free (and legally).

Just as an idea, here is what I use for widgets and such:

Retro Clock/Retro Date
custom tasker widgets (not free)
App Organizer folders
Weatherbug widget
mini info
audio manager
dazzle
pure messenger (not free)
Meridian widget for music player
astrid tasks
jorte calendar

(pure messenger can be replaced by launcher widget)

See, most everything I use is or could be free. My wallpaper is free, my dock background I got off LP forum free. Icons I found free.

Yea but I mean where is my contact list? It only says person in the shortcuts not the whole list. The spot doesn't revert back to a plus sign so I just left it blank.

I have been using Launcher Pro Plus for the last few days, and while I really like it, I have noticed a significant drop in battery performance. I realize that is this could be from several other things, so I am not complaining, simply asking if anyone else has had this problem and if there are any basic troubleshooting tips to fix it.

Something I've heard, but don't know if it's true, is that if you leave your Sense widgets running, LP just runs on top of it, so they are still running and eating battery. I've never removed all my Sense widgets knowing that I might revert back, but it's worth considering to see if you notice a difference.

Get home switcher.

Swithc to sense.

Save your scene.

Change to blank scene.

Then switch back to Launcher

You should see battery life improve.

Idk but it probably will run but I read somewhere that you should save your HTC sense scene then go to clean slate and then back to launcher pro.

Btw does anybody know if there is a 1 touch on/off widget 4 wifi, gps, bluetooth, and hotspot like the ones in sense?

LP PLUS is definitely worth the buy, it's the first app I paid for on Android and I don't understand how someone would say it's boring and wants to go back to *yawn* boring Sense. Sense apps are nice, but LP plus sense are just as good and adds tons of customizations ontop of that, you don't have to buy the icons app, just go to LP's website and download icons and docks there and new ones get added everyday.

This may be a stupid question, but what is a "scrollable widget"? How is it different than say my Twitter or Bookmarks HTC widgets that scroll? I'm looking at the option in preferences in LP that says "Enable Scrollable Widgets" and not sure what I'm enabling.

I played with Launcher Pro a couple months ago but never got the hang of it and went back to Sense UI. The other week, I decided to try it again and this time I put more heart and soul into setting it up and tweaking it to my preferences. A few hours ago I finally tweaked LP to the point where I'm kind of liking it. I know I will have to dabble with it a bit more before I find the sweet spot. It is has a "wow factor" to it compared to the stock HTC launcher. I've also got ADW Launcher and Ultimate Faves Pro to play with and compare.

Okay, now that I have discovered custom docks and played with a few settings, I am loving the new and improved LP+. The swipe feature is awesome and I haven't had any force closes yet. The Power Control and Beautiful Widgets widgets replace the HTC sense settings widgets. Twitter widget works great. Definitely glad I was convinced to give it another (well, third) shot.

I switched to Launcher Pro after buying WeatherBug Elite so I could have more room for widgets on my home screen. The dock rocks.

PayPal won't take my credit card so I can't try the Plus version.

For those trying to make their LP dock more exciting, you can save any of these docks to your phone and use them. Many of them are awesome. There is also a tab for icons in the LP style.

I love this homescreen! This is all done with Weatherbug Elite? The moon and sun widgets are exactly what I've been looking for, and the radar is a definite plus!

Go to the launcher pro website and read the forums...... I got my dock background there.

(popup is for plus users.....

Thanks for the info. I was debating on whether to upgrade, but wanted to know some of the features w/Pro. I have only 2 screens, but absolutely love the scroling docks. I would like at least 1 more (the free version only has 3).

Well...you could look at it like that...or you could look at it as thanking the developer for taking the time to create the app.

I'm pretty cheap too, but when I had a WinMo phone, I spent about $70 for only two apps that I really needed. $2.99 is such a small price, I feel really bad not donating/purchasing, especially if I use the app a lot.

The paid version also has a max of 3 docks, but you get 5 buttons and 5 swipe actions on each, making potential for 30 shortcuts. I uninstalled App Organizer because even with the 15, I don't to clutter my desktop with icons.

So yesterday I was looking for some new icons, and I saw LP had a new icon pack. There was a paid version for all the colors, and the free one was the basic grey scale/transparent, now I cant find it anywhere. Anyone know where I can get it (the free one)

Save your scene.

Change to blank scene.

Then switch back to Launcher

You should see battery life improve.
Do you have to do this upon reboot of the phone every time or is this just a one time do it deal?

Thanks,

yeah i saw that, but i think i found something where you could download a pack of them, not just individual ones. Then it said to get colors, purchase the pro version

im pretty sure sense just shuts down after you dont use it for a while, so you dont have to worry about it draining the battery


On another note, I never saw it posted here, but did you know you could swip the dock bar and get new sets of icons as if you were switching entire screens. Pretty cool feature. Saves room on the screens for widgets.
