launch center pro

Popular productivity app Launch Center Pro was updated today, bringing the software to version 2.5. The new release includes a series of bug fixes and improvements, support for over 100,000 new apps, and a Today widget for Notification Center.

The new widget is a significant addition for users, as it allows them to place up to 12 of their favorite Launch Center actions in the Notification Center. So you can send a group text, start a new Tumblr post and more, regardless of where you’re at in iOS.

For those unfamiliar with the app, Launch Center Pro is a launcher that aims to “speed up every day tasks with simple shortcuts.” You can create shortcuts for calling or messaging a specific contact, launching directly to the camera in Instagram, and more.

LCP can handle more complex actions too, making it a great automation tool. So performing tedious tasks like changing the temperature on your Nest Thermostat via IFTTT, or searching Yelp for the nearest coffeeshop, only take you a couple of taps.

If you want to check it out, Launch Center Pro is on sale right now. You can find it in the App Store for $3.99.

    I tried the widget but it lacks so much functionalities that other existing Launcher widget have for now. Please check out Launcher (by Cromulent Labs) or other great free alternatives like iLauncher, S Launcher and Go Launcher.

    Right now it’s just the iPhone version that’s been updated. The iPad version is still on 2.4.x (and another argument in favor of universal apps).
