How to quickly search Yelp with the help of Launch Center Pro


These tutorials are really well done, but it seems that most center around LCP (at least seven articles in the last month or so...) I know I sound a bit curmudgeonly, but it would be great to get similar coverage of other apps - though I'm sure LPC enjoys the promotion. Perhaps you get a lot of requests for help with it...

We do. It's one of those apps that are amazingly useful but people seem to have a hard time deciding how to set it up or how. But we have more third party app how to's coming. If you have any suggestions or requests on ones you'd like to see, feel free to drop me a line at :)

This a some great tips and step by step how to. Now, I just need for launch center pro to reduce their price on those apps. Too expensive!

Believe me, the amount of time you save on a regular basis makes it more than worth the price tag. Plus the developer is responsive and consistently updating and making it better.
