1. – I have links to prefs for Bluetooth, WiFi and Tethering.
    – Shortcut to person I iMessage most
    – Add Item in OmniFocus
    – Tweet in Tweetbot
    – 1Password

    – Left Flashlight and Google my clipboard until I find something better.

    1. If you see the spider web icon, it’s because you have your prefs shortcut setup as a web link rather than an app action.

      In the latest version, add any “App” action, but then when the app picker goes away, change the title and url to what you want for the prefs. The icon will then show up on your home screen. :)

      Unfortunately Apple will make this functionality will go away in iOS 5.1. :-/

  2. Mine isn’t very complicated yet, but your wifi and Bluetooth toggle ideas just blew my mind. I have the:

    – flashlight
    – google my clipboard
    – post to Facebook
    – tweet with Tweetbot
    – Facebook Messaging
    – New OmniFocus task with clipboard as notes

  3. – Adjust brightness
    – Engage Airplane Mode (I love that this one tap actually turns on Airplane mode)
    – Add item (to OmniFocus)
    – Shaky Takes (my website)
    – InstaCam (Instagram Camera)

    By the way, you can get the Settings app icon in the current build by choosing “Launch App” and then “cancel” when creating a link; just type in the preference URL manually, and it should give you the settings app icon. At least, that worked for me.

  4. First off, I’d like to say thank you for introducing me to Launch Center in the first place. I absolutely love the app.

    I mainly use it to call/message the Mrs., tweet (via Tweetbot) Wi-Fi & Bluetooth (thanks to your previous post), Maps, and a few other contact shortcuts. The app really is a huge time saver and an app that I use on a daily basis.

    1. I don’t have this app installed (so I don’t know exactly how it works), but what’s the point to have “Launch Maps”, or “Launch Music” shortcut in this app? Am I missing something, or doesn’t understand..?

      1. Just a shortcut I guess. That’s really all this app is. I have Maps in a folder on my last screen, same with music, and Launch Center is in the “dock”. Just saves a few flips, opening a folder, and then selecting the app. Two clicks from any screen opposed to possibly five swipes and two clicks. I really think once you try out the app, you’ll realize how useful it is…or not. It just works well for me.

  5. The funny thing is, I’ve had something similar but better than Launch Center on my iPhone for the past two years – it’s called SBSettings. I’ll stick to that, it’s free =)

  6. Thanks for sharing the tips on extending it with custom URLs. Really useful. The only thing I’m currently missing is that it doesn’t allow me to send an iMessage on the email of a contact.
