Launch Center Pro
iPhone

Description

Launch actions, not just apps.

It’s like speed dial for everyday tasks. Launch Center Pro saves you time by launching complex actions in a single tap.

Message a loved one, search Yelp for the nearest coffee shop, jump straight to the camera in Instagram, control your Nest Thermostat via IFTTT, all with just a flick of your thumb. Create shortcuts for email, Safari, Twitter, Facebook, phone or FaceTime calls, Google searches, and more. If you do it on your iPhone constantly, Launch Center Pro will make it easier and faster.

“Launch Center Pro is an app of verbs. Search. Shoot. Call. Text. Add... With a simple tap-and-slide, you can launch apps, perform actions and more... It's so simple and fast that before long your muscle memory takes over and you don't even have to look. ” —Dave Caolo - TUAW

“Perhaps the highest praise I can give Launch Center Pro is that it finally kicked Safari out of my dock...” —Lex Friedman - Macworld

Sample shortcuts:

- Call a loved one
- Message a GIF to a friend
- Take a photo and message it to a group
- Email your boss a report from Dropbox
- Control your Nest Thermostat via IFTTT
- Quickly search Wikipedia
- Scan a barcode and search on Amazon
- Jump right to your favorite website
- Create a new item in OmniFocus
- Search Twitter using Tweetbot
- And so much more...

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Launch Center Pro is run in the background for just a few seconds when entering or leaving an iBeacon region or geofence. If you use iBeacons or geofences and are concerned about battery life, keep an eye on the new Battery Usage section of the Settings app.

Great app...used as 2ndary Springboard. If you're JB and hide apps, nice for reduced clutter!

This app just feels like it takes more time to do things rather than less.

Just seems like its adding a UI layer to the iPhone instead of improving it, i didn't find this very useful.

i wish i could create a hardware shortcut (triple-press Home button, for example) to launch this. but as it is, I'd rather have Siri do the work or just do it myself. i use the flashlight the most.

Not for the faint at heart. Plus, I've found using this app to do tasks often takes more taps than it would if you were to just to open the actual app and use it.
