iPhone Screenshots


Open websites, launch apps, and run shortcuts directly from your Lock Screen.

For example, open google.com, launch TikTok, or run a shortcut to play a random music playlist.

You can add unlimited widgets, with different widgets for each Lock Screen configuration.

There are many icon options; either a website's icon, an existing app icon, 3000+ symbols, or an image from your photo library.

The app also includes a spacer widget that gives you more control over widget alignment.

This app is forever free with no ads or in-app purchases.

A Must Have App

A simple way to customize and add Lock Screen widgets. Similar apps only allow Lock Screen widgets from just a select few apps. This Quick Launch App however, allows you to add any app, or url. I looked into several similar apps, and none compare to this. Quick Launch is BY FAR the best. It is easy to use, very functional, and I highly recommend it.


Been looking for this!

Love it, this has thoroughly improved my lockscreen and is nearly perfect.

I'd love if there were a way for shortcuts to run without opening the app. For instance as Apple's Shortcuts widget does - a menu is displayed at the top without showing all of the shortcuts I use from Shortcuts app.

A minor gripe, no other app I'm aware of has the functionality that this does. Thanks!

Developer Response ,

This is unfortunately not possible. That's why there are no apps doing this. There's more info about this on the app's website.

I love the ability to run shortcuts from lockscreen

I set up a driving lockscreen that allows me to launch shortcuts to my daily commute route and then to order a cup of coffee when I get to work. The app does even more than that. I’m still exploring. Thanks for some great functionality!
