Money. More Money. Same as Shortcuts. 1/5
Old Faithful 5/5
I rate an App based on its functionality, the technical support provided to users and recognition of its early adopters.
As a long-time user of Launch Center Pro, I can state that the App excels in all these aspects.
I am eagerly looking forward to new features that are in the works.
Still no support for iPad Pro display 3/5
It’s still lacking full-screen support for the 2018 and newer iPad Pro and the 2020 iPad Air.
Much Needed Group Navigation Option 2/5
By Mr Isidro
Can you please consider adding a settings option that allows the user to turn off the quick enter & auto exit navigation of every GROUP folder.
I understand why it was designed this way, however just as it can be very quick functionality....it more than often also causes extra problems when one accidentally lifts a finger on the wrong app and then ends up taking twice as long for a simple step.
All I'm asking is for an option that would allow for normal open and close folder navigation without any auto exit or anything like this. Just a basic once you enter the Group it remains open even if your not touching the screen....and doesn't close until the user is ready and leaves the Group themselves.
Please respond & let me know if you can consider adding this much needed option on a future update?
Thanks in advance for your time and help.

i purchased their NFC tags to use it seems you can not use the nfc tags from them natively with shortcuts. the tag opens launcher pro. even purchasing the nfc add on does not resolve.
Pay for “Lifetime” access AGAIN? And NO widget. 1/5
I paid for “lifetime access” many years ago when the app was hardly known. I wanted to support the developer.
Now, I have to pay another $29.99 “Lifetime” Access to get “Premium” features. Thats with a $5 discount. $5!? WOW! Thanks! (Sarcasm).
Apparently, the developer has yet to grasp what “lifetime” means.
AND they removed the widget in the latest update.
I think it stinks 1/5
By Stinky Butt George
Your app is great and all but it says u can make widgets but you can’t
Launch Center Pro is Great 4/5
This app is sleek, functional, and useful.
Shortcuts is slow and cumbersome, and it's a shame Apple hasn't provided more public hooks for animation in iOS. Nevertheless LCP leverages what functionality there is very well.
Pretty good 4/5
Like LCP. It would be nice to be able to give a name to backups and be able to distinguish between tablet and phone devices
It was to colorful I didn’t see what i put plz change it to white and black plz thank you
HATE THIS APP 1/5
By BANNANAS 12
I hate this app it does not work
By stacey clemons
Suspicious Of Latest Update 3/5
Latest update is almost 30% larger in size. Assume that it will include more nonsense that will only be accessible via an IAP, no thanks. Surely Contrast hasn’t put all of their eggs into this one app. After all it has plenty of quality competitors. A subscription service when users are literally cutting the subscription cord because they’re no longer so stupid as to pay for 50-75 subscriptions for all of their mobile apps, another 10-15 for their desktop software, probably 2-4 for their streaming television, iPhone installments, car payments, rent or mortgage, toe massages, razors, wine club, etc.
Fool me once, shame on you 1/5
So i already paid for a "lifetime" licence for the Pro version. Then there's an update that adds basic features and asks for in app purchase. But you can also subscribe monthly or pay $30 for another lifetime licence.
So how do i know that in 6 months there won't be another IAP feature that i have to buy or another "lifetime" purchase?
I understand that devs need to make money and i support that, but don't nickel and dime your customers.
IT WONT LET ME DELETE IT
Five stars!!! 5/5
I love this app
No updates 2/5
You guys went the subscription route, but haven’t done much in terms of updates since. I would have happily just paid for the upgrade. Disappointed in the lack of development since the change. Bummer...
Does not upgrade 1/5
I purchased this in 2012.
App widget 2/5
It seems like this app would be cool. By why does my widget still show fake apps???
Awesome app! 4/5
Still love this app! Makes life easy!
Google maps/Speeddial? 3/5
Nice app, saves some homescreen real estate. Is there any way to open Google map shortcuts without the “preview” button, showing “start” instead? Also is there a way to dial contacts in one click, instead of having to confirm the number first before dialing?
Use this everyday. 5/5
So many apps you buy are soon left in the dust. Launch center adds the ability to expand the available apps all in one place.
Once you get used to using it it's second nature.
App support 3/5
I like the app, but there's been no new supported apps added since May 2019. Please could you add more app support, like Microsoft ToDo, Google wifi, Dark Noise, Reeder 4, Just Press Record, Triode internet radio, and Net News Wire when released. Lifetime purchaser, keep up the good work.
Update iPad Pro UI & contact us links 1/5
The user interface for the iPad Pro 11" isn't updated, (relatively minor). The user interface for the widget on iPadOS 13 has small icons on the "largest setting" with very little text showing under the icon. So the icons are small with dead space around them and making it harder to tap. This gives me less space for my other one or two widgets that show all the time in landscape mode, essentially wasting some of my space widget space with is precious.
I tried to contact the dev's directly through the iPad app, but the page won't load and then I tried through the "app support" link on the iPad App page through the AppStore and it says page not found. So even though I like the app in general and have a few use cases for it at the moment. I'm frustrated with the UI and the lack of ability to contact the Dev's to give feedback. If this would have come up about a month ago before renewal I would of been tempted to cancel. Please fix the "contact us" links and update the iPad UI. Thanks. :)
Great idea, but 1/5
What I was looking for, truly. However, the first 4 apps I tried to plug into it are not supported. Ergo, it's clearly useless to me for the intended purpose, and I'm not going to change the apps I use solely for the privilege of using this particular app.
Doesn’t work IPhone 8+ 1/5
Tried to set event or to have apps like Alexa auto load all I get is errors
Completely Useless 1/5
The app offers no advantage over using shortcuts app that comes by default on iPhones
Needs Dark Mode Theme for Widget View on iOS 13 5/5
Just needs a dark mode version of the widgets for the quick action & today widget so it looks clean on iOS 13+. Other than that it's perfect.
If you take the time to set up Launch Center Pro, it’s like having a totally new iPhone!
NFC tags do not work 1/5
By Son D.
NFC tag scanning does not work on iPhone 11 Pro Max. Do not pay the $5 for it. I’ve tried contacting their support and after saying they’ll look into it they haven’t gotten back to me in almost two weeks.
By russdee nation
Am I missing something? 1/5
I haven’t had to come back to this app in months because the one action I use every day has gone off without a hitch. Now I return because I want to create a new action, only to find everything locked. And I mean, EVERYTHING. The actions I already made before this update, including the one that goes off every day, are locked to me. This must be a mistake, right? How can you rescind uses previously accessible?
Wow! I was so excited to learn about this tool. I downloaded it, and the 2 applications * I was hoping to make actions for are not among the “100,000” supported apps. Seriously!?
* Lexicomp, Clash Royale (Lexicomp requires 4 taps to get to the most commonly used feature 😡)
Bought the App and then they move to a subscription-based model. 2/5
So I bought the full App, but then the developer moved to a subscription-based model. Any new feature has to be paid for á la cart, with a yearly subscription of $10, or an additional “one-time bundle” $30. And since Apple released “Shortcuts”, the app is no longer worth any price as I never need use it anymore.
3.1 Says many glyphs and customizations added.. 2/5
I hope I only experience a bug right now..
I have been using LCP for years now and happy with it. I was waiting to see what new features will be added, since I first read about it a few months ago, and was glad to update today, when I found it in the store. advertised added many new glyphs and customizing options.
Most of them though, are paid for, which I totally understand and think it's a great way to support the developers and expand the app's capabilities.
What I don't think is right, is to remove or limit ones that existed before the update.
I had been using the ios NATIVE emoticons as glyphs for some of my actions, to help distinguish similar actions. after the update, starting the app, some of my actions glyphs that were using emoticons, were replaced by question marks, and some of the others that used glyphs, now have a silhouette of the glyph.
I thought its a small glitch, I'll just fix them and when I opened the glyphs menu, the app became real slow on my iPhone 8+(!) trying to navigate between the many added glyphs indeed (mostly locked until purchased).
looking through the availble glyphs, I didn't find matching ones to the ones I had, so I decided I'll just replace them with emoticon ones... to find most of them locked!? But I also use a 3rd-party keyboard that has emojis built in .. Selecting one, froze the device for a few seconds and crashed the keyboard! been trying to repair my actions for the past 20 or so minutes, with a very slow app and no decent icons available.
I'd be glad to reverse the update, but it's not possible. I hope the freezes will be fixed soon and previous options will be available again.
I also hoped to see more placeholders in the grid, now that our screens are much larger than the first models,and when LCP was first available, instead of huge ones now.
Other than that, It is one of my most used apps, and love it.
Developer Cares 5/5
By A Dad with an IPOD
I know some are gripping about the developer but I have a lot of Inde Dev apps that no longer have any support, much less improvement. I’m happy to support an independent developer who is actually regularly adding features and continuing to provide timely support. Thank you for continuing to improve.
Shame!Cheated and scam 1/5
By SK Fervid
Shame on you guys! All u need is money and u guys doesn’t care about old customers at all!i initially paid 3$ for this back in 2017 and now when I emailed them to provide me nee features for free,they asking to buy all those features i paid for intially again.
With every update now you will be asked to pay additionally! SHAME ON YOU! I wish apple could kick you out of AppStore
Updated Review 5/5
I needed to go back and fix my unfounded original bad review. I was upset by the switch to subcription model. But this developer did everything right. He keept the features for previous paid users and also establish an optional one time payment for those that hate sub models. So kudos to the developer.
RIPPED OFF! 1/5
I paid for this app, suddenly my first purchase, while not refunded, still gets me LOCKED OUT of all the features I paid to use! I view the purchase screen and it says ‘because you purchased an earlier version of this app, you’re new bundle price will be knocked down to $5.00’ ... I’m not happy to have to spend MORE on an app I already paid for... but fine. I clicked the button and it’s trying to charge me an additional $24.00?!
forget that! I’m gonna have to call apple and get a refund because I am not paying that much money in addition to my original purchase.
I don’t recommend this app because if they decide to increase their app’s price, they won’t just lock you out of newest features... they’ll lock you out of the app completely.
update: I somehow managed to unlock some of my old shortcuts without paying again... but my luck was short lived. I’m locked out completely again.
I’m deleting this rip-off of an app.
Decent app 3/5
By Disco Stu 808
Not wild about the new pricing plan but it’s a good app.
Total Ripoff 4/5
After buying this app, and using it regularly for months, I tried to use it again only to be told that every function is now locked behind a paid subscription paywall. This AFTER I already paid for the app. Totally bogus.
EDIT: The developer sent an email to me, and showed me a way to make it work without paying.
Stop the incessant sign in requests. 3/5
Stop harassing me with requests to sign into the AppStore. I don’t have a subscription to your crap. Stop making me sign in to prove that. This app used to be great and is now a hot piece of garbage harassing it’s users.
I like it, but... 4/5
I like it, but I think it still could get a few things done to it.
1> I like the “True Black” theme, but I wish it would give you the option of having the “True Dark” and yet the icons (groups and actions) to be a bit whiter. The reason I say that is because the “True Black” is elegant, but the icons are a bit hard to see.
2 > It needs so badly an easier way to find apps on the “All Supported Apps”. It could be a search bar or the alphabet you see on the side that jumps you to the beginning of the list of apps that start with that letter.
3 > The schedule part should be more flexible. It could have a custom that lets you select when it’ll be scheduled.
Create actions not working 1/5
I create an action hit save / done and it doesn’t show up at all. Waste of time.
for an app that supposed to help save time — this app is certainly slow on start up.
Also text size need to be adjusted when on ipad-mini
Good Idea; Needs Access 2/5
I would use this app a LOT more if it could access a wide range of other apps. Most of my games, for example, won't launch. I don't need it to do the stuff on my home screen ... I need it to get to the stuff buried in folders on page 3.
Crazy cost 1/5
I purchased the app and used it for years. The latest update locked all the features until I buy the app again or pay yearly. Why can’t I use the features I paid for already? If they want to add features and charge for the new features I understand but not charge me for features I already paid for.
