Speed up everyday tasks with simple shortcuts. It’s like speed dial for apps.

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, all with just a flick of your thumb. Create shortcuts for email, Safari, Twitter, Facebook, phone or FaceTime calls, Google searches, and more. If you do it on your iPhone 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.

What’s New

Version 3.0.2

***So sorry for the hassle, this version fixes the bug causing purchases to not properly unlock features, as well as a couple of other minor bugs.***

Launch Center Pro 3.0 is a huge update and lays the foundation for the future of the app. In addition to the features listed below, we’ve made significant performance improvements (kind of important for a launcher app!) and modernized much of the code to provide a solid foundation for all the cool stuff we have in the works.

New in 3.0:
• NFC Triggers: iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max can now trigger actions via custom NFC stickers! iPhone 7 and newer can use in-app NFC scanning.
• Themes: We created a brand new “True Black” theme that looks gorgeous on OLED iPhones (and also looks nice on LCD iPhones)
• Advanced scheduling: You can now assign multiple schedules to a single action
• Add to Siri: Turn actions into Siri Shortcuts and trigger them with your voice
• Alternate App Icons: choose from several color variations and all past Launch Center Pro app icons
• Icon import from the Shortcuts app
• Support for iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max screen sizes
• Launch Center Pro for iPad has been retired, the iPhone version now supports both iPhone and iPad
• Bug fixes and additional enhancements

With 3.0 we’re also making Launch Center Pro free to use, with a subscription or one-time purchase to unlock all features. If you’ve paid for Launch Center Pro in the past, you get to keep using all the features you paid for without a subscription. You also get several new features and all the bug fixes, speed improvements, and other enhancements we’ve been working on for months. You only need to pay if you want to access the new features added in 3.0. That said, we have lots planned for the app, and would certainly appreciate your support to achieve those goals. We went out of our way to make this transition as fair as possible for users who have previously paid.

Ignore the negative reviews

I looked at a bunch of the negative reviews and you know what I see? A bunch of whiny children that aren't smart enough to learn how to use this app.

Launch Center is a must have for power users. This app gets a special place on my home screen alongside Workflow and Copied. If an app doesn't support URL schemes, that's not THIS developers fault. But rest assured, if an app does use URL schemes, you can use this to drastically speed up your workflow and get back to what really matters (hint: it's not staring at your phone).

My only recommendation to the dev is to add more glyphs. That's literally it. Everything else is perfect.

Historically perfect

Update: THEY FIXED THE LOCATION BUG! This thing is *perfect*!

Combined with IFTTT and Workflow, you basically have to sit back and chill while your device does everything you’d otherwise have to waste about ten differently-placed taps on. Launch Center Pro is the app Apple should’ve made and built into every device they’ve made so far. It’s the power-users answer to all their prayers — and then some!

The one AND ONLY problem is the location bug which got introduced in the last update. Location-tracking will automatically turn itself off, for some reason.

Again, it’s the ONLY flaw in this otherwise piece of ART! Ignoring that, it’s a STEAL at the price the developers are selling this at. It could be on for $15 or more, and still be underpriced.

Thank God (and the devs) for Launch Center Pro!
