    Today there is a new update to the all so popular home screen replacement app "LauncherPro". The new version is 0.8.2. It looks like the developer has added a couple of new features. One of them is called "virtual looping". It allows you to have the option to swipe back to your original home screen whenever you swipe past your first or last home screen. The other new feature creates a new gesture that allows you to bring up your four most recent apps.

    It makes you wonder why the original Android UI developers didn't think of this stuff...

    I went from LauncherPro originally, to ADW for a long time, and now I'm back to LauncherPro haha. Thanks for the update!

    Cool, the scrolling works well on my D1 with CM6.1. I did find that it helps my little pea brain register what screen I am on with the elastic feature turned off. Now I need to see how this reacts with a higher oc kernel. At 800, it looks pretty decent. Thanks for the headsup as to the changes.

    Only for the paid version. You get to it by going to your dock, long press and change shortcut(or swipe gesture like I did). Hit show popup, then recent apps.

    This app is great! I need to go ahead and just fork over the $3 for the full version. So worth it.

    Amazing app, I highly endorse Launcher Pro Plus! It's been on my X since the beginning and just gets better and better. Now if they would implement the ability to download and apply skins like Beautiful Widgets...that'd be the bomb.
