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.
What's New in Version 2.7.1

- Additional bug fixes and enhancements
Due to the shutdown of Parse.com, Launch Center Pro no longer supports direct integration with IFTTT. We apologize for the inconvenience. All data and user accounts will be permanently deleted by Parse as it shuts down the service.
IFTTT now has an iOS app that does much of what was supported in Launch Center Pro. If you need to create more complex workflows with IFTTT, give the Workflow app a try.

Great idea but some apps don't work well
I like this app but it hasn't been updated for newer apps in a long time and it's starting not to work as well. For example, Kindle won't allow me to change background when I launched through this app. Some apps would bounce right back after I hit the home button, and I could shut it down only with swiping it away after a two finger swipe upward. Some apps simply are not listed, and if it's not listed, there is no obvious way to improve that lack of support. So unless they do a major update I'm taking it off my IPad.
Not perfect, but definitely 4+ stars
I have been using this app for years. Although it could use some updating, it has seriously increased my productivity, which is what it is designed to do. Looking at the reviews, it is obviously an assault on the program or programmer.
Won't let me restore from backup?
I use the iPhone version and had no problems, this one doesn't seem to work as well. Syncing is broken for me
