Launch Center Pro
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, 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.

Is still good but used much less now since competitors have widgets
I have been using this for quite some time to quickly access certain apps or contacts. It is fairly easy to use (a modest learning curve at first). However there are several very good contact widgets and application launcher widgets available with iOS 8 which I use now far more than this. I would like to see an update for this program that includes more application selection as well as the ability to access this via a widget.
I love this app. I would be lost without it. It took me a while for it to "click" with my workflow, but I can't imagine not using it now. There are only a few third-party apps I have that don't support this app, and most of those have plans to integrate support. This app saves me from having to scroll through my recent calls to find my wife, or other family members, hunt through folders or multiple pages of apps.
My most used app
Launch Center Pro is easily my most used app. While a bit complex, the web is loaded with actions, features, and potential uses. Once you get it set up, your phone/iPad is never quite the same. This is truly the seat of iOS power. This is the app that acts as a hub. It's a launcher for apps and actions. It's where everything starts and ends. This is the most important app I own. Do your research, identify your uses, but it, have fun... Benefit.
