Launch-Center-Pro

App Cubby’s popular Launch Center Pro has received its first major update since hitting the App Store last June. In addition to a number of new actions, the version 1.1 update also adds better Text Expander support, a reorganized action composer, and plenty of bug fixes and enhancements.

Launch Center Pro, for those unfamiliar with it, is “like speed dial, but for more than just phone calls.” You can use it to set up shortcuts for a whole host of different actions in a whole host of different apps, and then the tasks you perform frequently are just a tap away.

For example, you might have shortcuts to call, text, or email your favorite contacts, or to quickly perform searches in apps like Tweetbot or Yelp. You can also create shortcuts to your favorite websites, or to instantly access Instagram’s camera.

And with version 1.1, Launch Center Pro does even more. Here’s a list of its improvements and changes:

✓ In-app messaging actions — group messaging and preset text
✓ In-app email actions — attach last photo taken or attach photo from the clipboard
✓ Clipboard actions — place text on clipboard, place last photo on clipboard, convert text on clipboard, and x-callback-url support
✓ Expanded Text Expander support — snippets can now be expanded automatically while launching an action
✓ New Tweet action — tweet last photo taken
✓ Reorganized Action Composer
✓ Bug fixes and other enhancements

Launch Center Pro is priced at $2.99, but the version 1.1 update is free to those who already own the app. You can find it using the App Store link below.
