Just less than an hour ago, we told you that Launcher Pro was set to get an update. Now, it looks like the update has come out, and adds some really cool new features. New sauce includes:

  • Virtual looping: When this is enabled, users can scroll past their last homescreen, only to bounce back to the other side. To enable this feature, go into Preferences->HomeScreen Settings->Virtual Looping
  • Dock popup: This feature is for Pro users only. It allows users to add Recent Apps as a Swipe gesture action popup. If you enable it, you can make a swipe gesture to display your most recently used apps, much like holding the Home button. To enable, hold down an icon in the dock->Swipe gesture action->Show Popup->Recent Apps. Thus far, I have found it displays more apps than long pressing the Home button
  • Clear cache option for Twitter and Facebook widgets; this is also only for Pro users. To access this, go to Preferences->LP Widget Settings->Twitter widget/Facebook widget

While the app is not a complete redo of the original code, that is a feat the Federico Carnales, the developer and creator of Launcher Pro, hopes to accomplish early 2011. Be sure to check out the app in our app database, and let us know what you think in the comments!
