LauncherPro is an Android home replacement app from Federico Carnales that I, like many of you have been using for quite some time now. LauncherPro has a ton of amazing, unique features and widgets that some other home replacement apps are lacking. To this point, Federico has been excellent with customer service and updates to the app, but made a huge announcement on September 28th of this year.
The announcement was that LauncherPro was going to slow down with updates as the creator was going to completely re-do the entire application from scratch in order to customize things even more and provide a better user experience. It has been roughly 6 weeks or so since we have seen any type of LauncherPro updates, but it looks like our friends over at DroidLife got the inside scoop. It seems as though there will be an update to the existing app sometime this week! The bad news is that there is no word on the update coming for the remake, but having used the original all this time in waiting I will certainly take it. What will we see next? Read the conversation below and let us know what you think in the comments!
This is definitely what we want to hear on a chilly Monday afternoon in December. It’s been too long without word from Federico Carnales and his LauncherPro, meaning we’re starting to get antsy. If you recall reading this true masterpiece of an interview, you will remember Fede announcing he would be rewriting the entire app from scratch to reduce bugs and to easily add features. Plus one to that.
I myself am not a patient man. I can admit that. So I set out for the answer. After 2 days of going back and forth, I was able to get a hold of him and snagged this quote:
“The update to the current LP should be out early next week (This Week) and the rewrite is still a bit hard to predict, it’s a lot more work than I had expected.”
Can I get a, “Woot Woot!” So everyone, I am giving you homework – Be on the lookout! And you may be wondering what this update is going to entail? Well don’t worry because I asked that too:
“It’s a secret.”
Can you believe that? A secret? I’m hurt. Either way, I am excited about this, and hope everyone else is too! Best believe when it’s updated you’ll see a post from yours truly. Depending on if my cold doesn’t keep me bedridden.
