Launcher has just been updated with some sweet new features! The popular iOS widget can get you a whole lot faster at doing repeated tasks. Calling your spouse is one button away. So is getting directions home, messaging a friend, and even launching an app. This ability resides right on your Today Screen. Now Launcher can have up to 6 widget groups. These can appear and disappear based on time and location awareness too. All this is available through an in-app-purchase. See if Launcher is right for you. We think it’s pretty amazing.
If you’re a fan of Launcher, you know it’s already earned a place on your iOS home screen. But it’s just gotten better thanks to today’s update which includes Time and location based launchers.
