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.

App was great when it worked
First of all, I do want to say that I was successfully able to create and execute the shortcuts from the iOS notification menu, which are great for quick access to repetitive tasks. However, while I was initially able to set up and execute the quick actions from the app icon using 3D Touch on the iPhone 6S, after doing a factory reset/re-install on my iPhone, I was no longer able to pull up the quick actions using 3D Touch. I am not sure how/why this happened, but it seems like there could be a bug. I would have given this app 4-5 stars if the quick actions worked consistently, but for now, I can only give this app 3 star until all the kinks are worked out.
Not perfect but
I gave a previous version of this app a not so good review. It is still the case that many apps don't have URL activation. But far fewer. The more URLs an app supports the more the launcher can do. Moreover the authors of this app have kept improving it providing free updates. The improvements mean it is one of the 4 apps on my dock. Years of use of a constantly improving product change the value proposition.
The icon builder which you use to associate icons with your application launches has always been creative and well thought out.
I bought it hoping its scheduled or location based options would let me do things like automatically make the screen dark at night or launch a podcast app on the way to the car. However, for both of these, it can launch a notification, but then you have to select it to actually do the action. Lacking that functionality, I found it not very useful: you can make buttons for things, but nothing compelling or that saved me more than a click or two. On the other hand, their email help team was very responsive.
