Now Allowed to Launch Apps From Today Widgets

Steven Sande (in 2011):

Although the Launch Center app works identically to Quickpick, David Barnard of App Cubby just notified me that the app was turned down. The note he received: “We noticed that your app included inappropriate use of Notification Center, which does not comply with the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.”

David Barnard:

I’m thrilled to announce @LaunchCenterPro 2.5 will be released Tuesday with a widget and support for over 100k apps!

After first being rejected for using Notification Center to launch apps in 2011, it’s hard to express how happy this release makes me.

Update (2015-09-16): Juli Clover:

With the new Notification Center widget, it’s possible to add twelve of your favorite Launch Center Pro actions for quick and easy access. You can do things like call a specific person, add an event to a favorite calendar app, get directions home, scan a QR code, send a group text, and more directly from the Notification Center.
