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.

Limited and expensive
First of all, let's start with the price. HOW MUCH?? It was already expensive when it was £4 a couple of years ago!
This app is ok for shortcuts into another app, e.g. I used it to get at specific passwords in 1Password. I had it set up to also be able to quickly add a task or text a few selected friends. But the reality is that it is more intuitive to add a task by simply telling Siri, or opening Reminders or your fav todo app in the same number of steps. The shortcuts to message friends also rarely get used because it is simply easier to use a contacts app that is specifically designed to speed dial any number of your favourite friends. But this app does provide a quick way of getting at specific features of an app, if the app has that ability — as in the 1Password example.
Loving the features in version 3
I’ve been a long time very happy user of Launch Center Pro. The new features in version 3 make this app even better and it was a “no brainier” for me to upgrade for the additional features.
The developer has kindly offered many different ways to do - either “a la carte” one-off purchases depending on the additional features wanted, a discounted one-off price for all the additional features (which I went for) or an annual subscription.
I’m looking forward to what’s next for this app!
Perfect for Shortcuts
With the imminent release of iOS 13 and a big focus on Shortcuts I’m super excited to have LCP on my phone!
At the beginning I really thought to myself “why use this app, it’s adding an extra step!”
However, I discovered launching Shortcuts from LCP and never looked back!
I prefer to use LCP to launch Shortcuts as it feels more natural than going in to the Shortcuts app.
I no longer use Bookmarks on my phone I launch all my favourite sites with LCP.
It’s a great app and I’m über excited with the latest release! Using custom icons for my LCP actions have really been missing for far too long. Now, you have a nifty little icon creator with lots of options!
Great app that has to be explored!
