The name LG may have more familiarity with Home appliances, rather than the Smartphone market. Though Samsung rules the Android space, LG cuts in to the competition with its much loved launchers and custom wallpapers. The recently launched Optimus G pro features the latest interface and launcher from LG. A bunch of live wallpapers and widgets are also being made available. All you need is a device powered by Android 4.1 or higher OS, to experience this attractive UI. Here’s how you can do that by installing the Go pro launcher:
The latest version of LG Home replacement launcher from Optimus G Pro is also a flagship from the company. With quiet many improvements from its predecessor, the new launcher could remind you of the Xperia Z launcher, especially in the edit mode. It supports seven homescreens which are capable of being embedded with widgets and shortcuts of your own choice. Many attractive themes can also be downloaded. You will also find a static Google voice/web search bar and a ‘+’ icon on top of the homescreen – this can be used to edit or add widgets. The G Pro launcher also offers the popular AccuWeather Widget. The bunch of new live wallpapers can be installed as normal .apk files on any device that runs on ICS or Jellybean firmware.
