    Fantastic idea. I was just thinking of creating the same thread. Here's mine. If you haven't heard of Launch Center Pro, I suggest you check it out.

    I don't see the apps purpose. Why go into an app to launch an app? Kinda counter-productive.

    Check this out. The app really does help do things quicker. But, it's not for everyone. It did help me squeeze a few more spaces on my home screen for more productive things.

    After five years of never changing my dock, this app came along and made its way in.

    I sort of don't see the point either... :confused:

    I can see how it might make a marginal difference with certain things. Not sure. Would be happy to be enlightened because it could be the start of better shortcuts for iOS overall.

    EDIT: I guess... instead of clicking contacts, then scrolling or typing to find a person, then hitting dial, you can set up Launch Center to dial that person, so it looks like it saves you from the step of searching for him/her? I suppose that helps to some degree. Again, just feels very marginal. Things like toggling WiFi just seems like it'd be the same as tapping on Settings.

    I can understand that. For instance, some of mine let me quickly search eBay, Yelp or even Google. All with just one tap (2 if you count opening the app). The best part is the app is very customizable to suit your needs.

    Here's an example. I personally have Instapaper on my 2nd page. You have it stowed away in Launch Center. All I have to do is make a quick swipe and and click Instapaper, while you have to open Launch Center, then choose Instapaper.

    Same with Reminders. I have that on my front screen so I can just click it. You gotta open up Launch Center before you can open it.

    You're pretty much paying for an app which serves as a folder, something you can make for free.

    It's still the same amount of swipes and clicks when you think about it.

    You missed the part I edited in:

    To each their own. :rolleyes: I like it. I think you're missing the fact that it has app integration, and that it will get more and more as its being developed. Instead of going straight to Safari, you're going straight to the website of choice. Instead of going to your list of messages, you're going straight to compose. That is nice for the people who bought this app.

    I can just add the book mark to my home screen or I can make 2 taps to compose a message, the same as using Launch Center (two taps as well).

    I don't really see the benefit, but rather a waste of money. The developer is a smart man...It's kinda like a placebo effect. People think their doing things quicker, but they're really not. Launch Center pretty much serves as a second home screen / launcher.

    This does more than simple folder, though.

    Here's mine so far. Really handy little app. Although this thread should probably be moved to the pictures thread.

    Look, if you want to argue about the app's purpose, go do it in the main news topic here:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1391720

    Otherwise you're just wasting your time because this thread is titled "Post your Launch Center Pro setup!" and not "Launch Center Pro sucks, who agrees with me?"

    Explain then, because I can launch all these apps from my home screen if I wanted to.

    Weren't you just told that this is where we post pics of our layout and if you wanted to discuss the app that there was another thread about it?

    Even though I don't see the point or value of this app, I do hope it does well, so that Apple will realize that people want quicker access to things (direct dial, direct message, toggle settings, etc.).

    That's all I'll say.

    Speed dial my favourites, search Google / Wiki, message a specific contact, add an item to Things, lookup an item in 1Password, all from the same place. Just some of the things I love about this app.

    Here's my screen:
