THE iOS 12 has arrived and, with it, is also arriving one of the applications that will amplify the system’s functionalities – more specifically, from Siri. The application Shortcuts (Shortcuts), announced at the last WWDC and released in Golden Master last week, it is now available to all users on the App Store (compilation is the same as GM, 1A69).
If you don’t know what it is about, just know that Shortcuts is an application based on the old Workflow, which was purchased by Apple in 2017 and allows you to create sequences of events, activated by Crab, to simplify your life. So you can, for example, create a command “I got home!” that opens your garage door, adjusts the air conditioner, heats the kettle to make a coffee, fills your bathtub and puts on some nice music on the HomePod – that, of course, considering that you have all these devices connected to the HomeKit. And that you are rich, but Details…
The commands, of course, go beyond HomeKit: you can create events that help you work, creating PDFs and sending them to a contact list, or producing GIFs automatically from Live Photos, or calculating the tip in a restaurant and dividing the amount automatically with your friends… in short, the possibilities are basically endless and you can explore everything in the app.
The best part is that, for those who already used Workflow, Shortcuts will automatically import all your commands and everything will continue to work the same way it always did – with the benefit that, for now being a native feature of the system, it may have access to a range of new features, such as turning on / off low power mode on the device, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mobile data, airplane mode and more.
Shortcuts can be downloaded right now from the App Store (if you already had Workflow, you will receive an update). Go deep – and also check out the Sharecuts website, which shares formulas that can be very useful for your life.
