The battle between home replacements continues between ADW and LauncherPro. Federico Carnales, developer of LauncherPro, has added a more distinctive feature that might help it pull away with the win. Now users can add scrollable widgets, similar to that of HTC Sense. Of course, he has added a price tag to the application to go along with the new features. You should look at it as a small price to pay for your added features. Currently the early-bird price is $2.99 and will go up once more widgets are added.
Upcoming widgets to be added:
- Bookmarks Widget – Quick access to your browser’s bookmarks
- Friends Widget – Lists your friends’ 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.
- Messaging – Scroll through a list of your SMS messages or one by one. Quick links to delete messages, reply, etc.
Unfortunately, Federico lives where paid apps can not yet be sold, so you can purchase this application on his official LauncherPro Web site via Paypal.
Keep in mind, you can get the application now for $2.99 or risk paying more when he adds more widgets.
