    For those with LP+ there was a new update today. It has a new LP widgit. Its a calendar that is very close to the HTC Sense one.

    I for one missed the Sense Calender and am happy as can be with this update.

    Not sure what else was updated since the LP site doesnt have the change log up yet but thats one thing i did notice.

    LP ver 0.7.2.0 is the update ID.

    There is also "agenda widget" that is really nice. I still have sense and I switched to it.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just updated

    Just edited to add I really like this new calender/agenda widget combo better than the Sense calender

    You can now add swipe gestures to icons in the dock, too.

    After you install it, press the home button and you should get a prompt for which launcher to use. Make sure to tell it to be the default, first. If that doesn't work for you, download Home Switcher and select LauncherPro as your default launcher.

    What??? If your on your Android Phone (I would imagine it's an EVO since your in the EVO Forum... you'd download it via the market place. Once you've downloaded it and it has automatically installed it's self simply touch the home button on you EVO and it'll ask you which launcher to use. Once their select Launcher Pro and your golden!

    Launcher Pro Plus will cost you, but IMHO it's worth every cent!

    Pro version will include the custom widgets he is making to replace all the SenseUI widgets.
    Right now he has bookmark and calendar/agenda done. I believe he is working on the friendstream widget next.

    Good questions! I just switched to LP myself and was wondering the same thing. Anyone else noticing their battery draining faster than normal?

    I feel the same. My battery is draining pretty fast and I'm at 1 hour usage instead of my 4 hours at the same level. It probably isnt much but it might be 1% or 2% more per hour.

    I'm finding LP to be pretty neat but Sense is pretty solid all on its own. However battery levels will win the day.

    LauncherPro won for me because it supports landscape.

    My phone spends 90% of the day in landscape (car, kickstand at work, ect). And I just got fed up with having to look at everything sideways.

    Yeah i did the update, I only used LP for about two days tho. I was on 2.1 still with 1.47 running.
    I could of gone 10 hours with 80% left with no use and after LP it is more like 60% left. So something fishy is going on but I don't think the update had much to do with it.

    IMO landscape is pretty neat, but sense trained me to use portrait so much that landscape isn't a "need" for me per say. I almost never get near a desk for my job so it's a moot point.

    However, if 90% of my day is gonna be as long as 60% of my day on sense, that's what'll ultimately make the difference, cause the battery on the EVO is ok at best...

    I get that. I just don't see much of a battery diffrence with LP to notice it. But if your seeing battery issues I can understand your point.

    I'm going to run a test tomorrow at work and see how far it gets me in 2.2...

    I'll leave it idle the 9ish hours I'm at work and I *should* be at 80% still, if not then it's clearly that... I even have less widgets on the home screens than when I'm on Sense also...

    Just update OTA and I can't seem to get launcherpro to stick as the default. I can launch it but the second I hit the home button it goes right back to Sense.

    Any one else having this problem?
