    I think he was also trying to put the weather on the lock screen (see screenshot below). That would have been NICE

    I was one of the unfortunate ones who paid up but could never get the Temp Badge to display.
    Also a former BB user of this app.
    I deleted it.
    Good Luck

    I just reinstalled it to see if it was possible - in response to a comment that it could not be done. I have since deleted it. I don’t need "good luck". I loved the app on BB many years ago. But the iOS version has issues.

    With the exception of "weather on lock screen", BeWeather has worked well on my 5s including the icon temperature badge.

    2. Open fantastical and create a new event
    3. Open fantastical and create a new reminder
    4....

    Just try it, it works awesome. I use it to create entries with other apps like Week cal, OmniFocus, Drafts etc.

    If you have any questions or problems with the URL-schemes then just ask, I can help you to set it up right 😊

    It was pulled from the App Store. It did not meet Apples requirements.

    I like the idea. Do you know what requirements it failed? Is there any other app that provides the same utility?

    Yes, I'm experimenting with the free version. I hope/wish Apple brings back Launcher....It really looks GREAT and something I would use.

    As many app developer said, they were all confused why the app/widget "Launcher" was available in the AppStore in the first place, because it violates some rules. So I don't think it will be available ever.

    I have both installed and they basically do the same, they activate an URL scheme, e.g. one from Fantastical.

    Just use Quick-Tap (if it's still available in the AppStore). All things you wanted are available in Launch Center Pro and so it also works through Quick-Tap through the Notification Center, but you can just enter data in Fantastical itself, in Launch Center Pro you can enter the text in the app itself and it will be passed to Fantastical.

    Here are the URL schemes:

    Launch Fantactical:
    fantastical2://

    Launch Fantastical and add a new item:
    fantastical2://parse?sentence=

    Launch Fantastical and add a reminder:
    fantastical2://parse?sentence=&reminder=1

    Launch Fantastical in Search page:
    fantastical2://search?query=

    I have no idea why it is confusing to people. I got Quick-Tap and I like it. I checked out Launch Center Pro, but that seems really basic. I like how Quick-Tap separates all the categories. Do you have Launch Center Pro?

    Yes, I have Launch Center Pro, but I don't use it anymore, I just have it to create URL scheme and within the app there's a lot of new apps which implemented URL schemes, that's why I keep it.

    I have Launcher and also Quick-Tap.
    - With Launcher I launch apps like WeekCal, OmniFocus, 1Password etc., it's very convenient.
    - With Quick-Tap I have a category for calling people, one for texting people, one to go directly to a Whatsapp contact etc.

    But mostly I used Drafts app, now I just use Drafts 4 for almost everything, it's one of the most awesome apps ever!
    The new version can also handle scripts, has a extra customizable keyboard row, handles several actions at once and is iOS 8 and iPhone 6+ optimized

    Vidgets is a good one too. It has some nice things to put on the Notification Center Screen.

    Got it. Love it. What does paying for the pro get you (other than helping the developer, which is important)?

    Your link took me to the featured section in the App Store. ? All kinds of weird things in iOS 8. See if this does any better. I like the widget. I did find it using the search bar. Thanks!
