AppsCenter: Launch Apps Directly From iOS 5’s Notification Center

It’s been a little over 24 hours since iOS 5 was released, and already, the jailbreak devs are putting in work. Case in point: AppsCenter, from jailbreak developer, Filippo Bigarella.

AppsCenter is a jailbreak widget that allows you to launch apps directly from Notification Center. In fact, this can ultimately become your de facto method for launching apps.

AppsCenter not only allows you to launch apps from Notification Center, it also includes a ton of different settings to manipulate the look and feel of the widget.

Some of the settings include: The ability to select only certain apps, paging, hiding labels, hiding scrollbars, and apps per page.

The tweak is still in beta; hence, it’s unavailable to the public at this time, but it should hit Cydia in the very near future.

Do you think you’d prefer to launch your apps from Notification Center, or will you be sticking to other methods?
