LauncherPro

Federico Carnales has announced the release of an update to LauncherPro, his popular homescreen replacement for Android. Version 0.8.6 adds new features including icon pack support, real home screen looping (as opposed to the virtual looping included in earlier versions), and the ability to hide icon background labels. There's also the usual mix of performance improvements and bug fixes, as you'd expect.

The new version is available now from the Android Market (links and QR code after the jump), or as a direct download from the source link below.

LauncherPro 0.8.6 brings icon pack support and more

Yeah, look under Preferences -> Theme Settings -> Icon Pack.
It will show any icon packs you already have installed, (default is 'none') and will apply them when you restart LauncherPro.

I prefer the 'bounce' for the screen transitions, but I like playing with the new changes. Thanks for the updates!

(I'm using Launcher Pro Plus, and loving it!)

I looove launcher pro, but this update messed up the switched orientation for OG keyboard :0/

Slide out the keyboard and the screen stays vertical.

Although, this is the ONLY time I've ever had a problem w it, keep the great features comin`!

Does anyone else think there needs to be a tag or somesuch for the wallpapers and other customizations in the screenshots?

I guess I'm not the only one, but can anyone explain any of this to those of us who don't use LauncherPro?
- Icon pack support
- Real home screen looping
- Hide icon background labels

I like the fact the Fede is taking his time on the complete recode of this launcher. He's been taking all of the best suggestions and working them in with performance in the front of his app. Can't wait to get Launcher Pro 1.0 (Should be Tablet compatible)
