Workflow is your personal automation tool, enabling you to drag and drop any combination of actions to create powerful workflows for your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
Workflow includes over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, and iCloud Documents, to name a few.
For example, you can use Workflow to:
* Make animated GIFs
* Add a home screen icon that calls a loved one
* Make PDFs from Safari or any app with a share sheet
* Get directions to the nearest coffee shop in one tap
* Tweet the song you're listening to
* Get all of the images on a web page
* Send a message including the last screenshot you took
* And so much more...
Your workflow creations can be launched from inside the Workflow app or from other apps using Workflow's Action Extension. You can even export a workflow as a standalone app on your home screen.
Workflow opens up infinite possibilities of what you can do with your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. But this is just the beginning. Stay tuned.
Great idea but I just want to listen to Spotify not Apple Music
I’m going to be honest I like the app. But my complaint is that, I make icons to decorate my phone, But now when it takes me to safari to get the icon to my honescreen, it doesn’t show the picture (or icon) that I chose. Idk if I’m doing something wrong or-... this needs to be fixed if it’s the app.
I've been using Shortcuts on my iPhone for a moment now. When I downloaded the Shortcuts app for my iPad, I noticed the app doesn't allow you to use different shortcuts for different devices. For example, I don’t need to use Google maps shortcuts on my iPad because I use Google maps on my iPhone only. I would like to use different shortcuts on my iPad but I’m not given the option. If you delete or edit a shortcut it changes on both devices.
Timestamp parsing has been broken for months. I don’t like it when people leave bad reviews about bugs because this isn’t the proper format to report them, but I actually have submitted a report on Radar. So what I would say is Apple is slow to respond to bugs with this app. Maybe this will improve with iOS 13, but for now, don’t expect to do anything with date parsing.
Really useful productivity tool with lots of attention to detail. Handy for things like bookmarking Notes pages and robust enough to make a custom reminder management system. On the downside: Since the kast update, which brought great performance gains, launching Shortcuts by URL does nothing every 10-30 or so launches (I hit it a dozen times a day). Also, occasionally the incorrect line of code is executed. I have if- statements that can never be true, but occasionally the code inside is run (a simple if equals and an alert).
I love this app and it helps me skip past some of the clunky changes that certain iOS updates have made. For some reason, whenever I trigger shortcuts in the US via the shortcut widget, every shortcut fails to activate the first time and requires me to cycle through a failure message before working the second time. The odd thing is that whenever I’m traveling outside the US, this bug doesn’t occur ever. Obviously there is also no easy-to-access portion of this app to submit bug reports.
Doesn’t work for YouTube after iOS update :/
What good is it if you cannot name the shortcut? And there was no help screen.
For example, You can only change scenes via a Shortcut. There should be that could control just 1 accessory and it’s properties! Also, like other people, there should be more shortcuts to choose from the gallery and more when you are making one. Examples * Go Home shortcut (Does the action of the home button) * Ping an Apple Device (AirPods, iPad, iPhone, etc) Overall, this is a pretty good app! I love it. 4 stars!
