Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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, FaceTime calls, Google searches, and more. If you do it on your iPad 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

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.

Best iOS automation app
I've long been a heavy user of the iPhone version, however wasn't sure I needed it on my iPad. But the app is reasonably priced, so I recently downloaded it.
Turns out I use it in a rather different way from the iPhone version, but the iPad version has also become irreplaceable for me.
The developer provides good support, and the app is updated frequently. A must-have.
The lynchpin of iOS productivity
One of my favorite apps, bar none. I use it every day, multiple times a day, to launch actions that save me precious minutes and seconds. It takes some initial investment to learn and set up, but it opens up possibilities on iOS you never dreamed of. And even if you don't understand URL schemes, the action composer lets you get significant use out of the app.
This app lives in my dock
Unlike the reviewer who felt that the documentation was scant, I found this app to have the best documented URL launch scheme of any app. It is undoubtedly a power users tool and harder to set up than say, Apple's Notes app, but it is designed to be fairly approachable and has incredible utility. Highly recommended.
