Launch Center Pro today received its first major update. The app, which was released last summer, creates shortcuts to functions within apps. As an example, it can be used to create a shortcut to send a message to a specific person or search Yelp with a predetermined search term.
Update 1.1 adds new in-app actions, allowing users to use preset text and group messaging, along with improved Text Expander support for URLs and a reorganized action composer.
-In-app messaging actions — group messaging and preset text
-In-app email actions — attach last photo taken or attach photo from the clipboard
-Clipboard actions — place text on clipboard, place last photo on clipboard, convert text on clipboard, and x-callback-url support
-Expanded Text Expander support — snippets can now be expanded automatically while launching an action
-New Tweet action — tweet last photo taken
-Reorganized Action Composer
-Bug fixes and other enhancements
Launch Center Pro is normally priced at $4.99, but to celebrate the update, the app has been discounted to $2.99. It can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

...Wait for 60 seconds...
I bought the app last time it was on sale after hearing all the positive reviews. I don't use it much because there are so many basic things that can't be done or controlled.
It takes advantage of the url system so if an app doesn't have it implemented, you can't do anything apart from launch it. I can't remember exactly since I don't use it much but things like built-in apps and preferences are pretty much unsupported.
I'll update it and play around with it a little again to see if things have improved.
At this point there are much better choices for phones other than iPhone especially if you are unwilling to jailbreak.
