    I am new, and I am not exactly sure yet as to what all you can do with LauncherPro Plus, which is why I'm posting here to find out. I looked on the forum but didn't really get a direct answer. If this was answered previously, I apologize in advance. I guess my thing is what exactly does LauncherPro Plus allow you to do?

    The plus version has some widgets that you can use inside the launcher.
    They are HTC style but in my opinion there are many others on the market that are way better.

    ^Exactly as he said...
    The other side of it is that purchasing the Plus version allows you to support the developer, Fede, for what is truly one of the best (if not THE best) alternative launchers out there. I'd suggest you try out Launcher Pro (free version) and play around with it as much as possible. There are tons of threads and a few websites about the customisation you can do with LP. You can also look around launcherpro.com to see what the widgets look like, as well as the development roadmap for the Plus version and the regular version, so if you decide to upgrade you'll know exactly what you're in for.

    Fede has also suggested that when he releases new features to LP+ the price will go up.

    I don't really use any of the plus features, but I still paid for it because the app is really as good as everyone says. So, I paid just to support the developer.

    Our entire team has paid for this app, and we use all if not every piece of functionality within this app. We are excited to support such a great application along with home launcher. WE are all also using it as Default, which many do not. Just a great app. Trust us here at FBM - Pay for it, you will not be sorry.

    You get to use the widgets. But Fenske really need to make it easier to customise the widgets. Right now we have to rely on apk files supplied by independent developers.

    The main things that I found to be added to LauncherPro Plus:

    1. Official LauncherPro widgets, which include: People, Bookmarks, Calendar, Messaging, Twitter, Facebook, and Friends.

    2. Pop-up boxes from the dock that show: Missed Calls, Unread SMS, and Bookmarks (I love the Bookmarks one).

    3. Ability to re-size widgets (let's say you have your columns set to 5, but your 4-column widget is "cut-off" and not showing the full widget... you can long-press on a widget, release, and drag the bottom-right triangle of the highlighted box to make the widget larger (or smaller)).

    As others have said, LP+ is an excellent launcher, so much better than the original Orange rubbish on my San Francisco and well worth the price. I haven't really tried the widgets which come with it. I just tried the free version of LP for a couple of days and then bought the full version.

    No offence but some people complain that there is more software on iPhone than Android - developers can only do so much with free apps. If we are prepared to pay a small amount for the full app, then they have the funds to do more.

    I've always found it hysterical that we're willing to shell out HUGE money for these phones, but we get uncomfortable spending $0.99 - $2.00 on apps!

    That is true but maybe if the dang phones weren't so expensive people could afford more apps. LOL:D

    Some of the most beneficial features our team has found in this app, has been the pop ups and the ability to resize. When we started coupling that with the ability to work it with DesktopVisualizer also, it was limitless to the amount of customization to the main screen and applications space available. To us, this application allows our designers to have literally a blank canvas for customization as well as many other creative designers.
    Truly, a must have application for the android system.

    LP+ is worth every penny and Fede deserves all he gets. Having said that, I do prefer the Pure Messenger FB, twt, email widgets over LP+ purely because of the customisation options. However, I believe Fede is working on a new version and if he matches/betters the skinning options available with Pure Messenger then I'll be well happy as LP+ is far more stable and predictable for daily use.

    Long press a dock icon-change icon - chose blank. You can also use an invisible icon to have shortcuts in the dock but not see them.

    I don't think so.

    Transparent Icon

    I believe it's a 1x1 sized icon, but if you have LauncherPro Plus, you can resize it.

    I don't use many of the 'plus' features either. I just wanted to help the dev out. It's one hell of an app he's got there and I enjoy using it. Totally changed the way I feel about my phone.
