Launch Center Pro for iPhone review

App Cubby's Launch Center Pro is the newer, shinier, big brother to the existing Launch Center app, built with a new kind of power user in mind. The original Launch Center was a great attempt at organizing and enabling URL schemes. URL schemes are a limited way -- and currently the only way -- for apps to send actions to each other in iOS. Many apps support them and the net result is that Launch Center allows users to pre-program certain actions (for instance launching IMDb and immediately grabbing current showtimes for your area) in a list form. In other words, it let you launch actions, not just apps. It was a great start and Launch Center Pro builds on this pedigree, but adds a entirely new level of customization that new users will immediately find accessible, but fiddly (and I mean that in the best way possible) users will dive into and love.

Google Offers for iPhone review

Google offers is a Groupon-like service that offers huge discounts on things like restaurants, spas, travel, auto care, services, and more. The app is very well designed and offers many opportunities for users to save a good chunk of money on things they are in the market for -- or spend money on things they wouldn't have otherwise purchased.

Google Offers has a very pretty design and shows off a featured deal at the top of the Featured tab with a big, full-width photo and title. Underneath that hero offer is a list of more featured offers in your area. A picture thumbnail is on the left with a short description of the deal on the right including the business involved and location.
