Launch Center Pro can be configured to provide quick and convenient ways to create and access OmniFocus tasks on iOS.
Launch Center Pro is an automation app for iOS that allows you to define actions that can be triggered using a tap of your finger or automatically triggered based on the time of day and your location.
These action may simply launch an app or sending a text message, but can also trigger more complex sequences. You can also use Launch Center Pro to invoke workflows created with Siri Shortcuts, and Drafts.
Launch Center Pro has built-in support for OmniFocus and can be used in a variety of ways to increase efficiency, consistency and convenience on iOS. You can create Launch Center Pro actions that switch to OmniFocus perspectives that you use frequently and can build Launch Center Pro actions that create and populate OmniFocus actions.
For example, let’s say you’re reading an email from John Smith and want to create an action to phone John. You could copy “John Smith” to the clipboard and then tap an action in Launch Center Pro that adds “Phone: John Smith” to your OmniFocus inbox, all without typing a single character.
Additionally, Launch Center Pro can trigger Siri Shortcuts or Drafts action based on the date and time and your location. Location-based triggers support GPS, iBeacons, and NFC (Near Field Communication) devices for maximum flexibility.
Conveniently, Launch Center Pro has a Today extension that gives you access to your most frequently used Launch Center Pro actions. For example, if you were out an about you could swipe down from the top of your iPhone’s screen and tap “Errands” to be taken directly to your Errands perspective in OmniFocus.
