LauncherPro Plus Released

The developer behind popular Android launcher, LauncherPro has released a paid version of his app.  The paid version is to be called LauncherPro Plus and is to be a vast improvement over the free version.  The paid version which now includes a contact widget similar to the one from HTC’s SenseUI, is set to feature an entire array of desktop widgets to suit your needs. And for those wondering, yes they will be scrollable!

These widgets will include:

  • Bookmarks Widget – Quick access to your browser’s bookmarks
  • Friends Widget – Lists your friend’s status updates from Facebook and Twitter, and lets you update your own status too.
  • Calendar/Agenda Widget – Shows you a calendar you can scroll through to switch months, and also lets you see your agenda for any particular day right within the widget.

So where can you pick up LauncherPro Plus?  Well, unfortunately it is currently not in the market since the developer lives in a country that will not allow for paid apps to be sold, but you can however, buy it straight from his site.  The launcher starts at $2.99, but once he adds the rest of the widgets listed above, the price will go up.

Let us know what you think!
