PRODUCTIVITY APPS FOR THE IPHONE
Workflow is a powerful automation tool for setting up a wide variety of customizable actions that you can execute quickly, Workflow is noted for its superb design, enabling the user to set up new formulas using a smooth drag-and-droop interface. 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. Some of the most popular actions include making a gif, setting an icon for your home screen, tweeting a song that you are listening to, making PDFs from Safari, and retrieving images from a web page. WorkFlow was purchased by Apple, Inc in March 2017.
Shorts is the latest iteration of Workflow. In iOS 12, Apple reconfigured the app so that it could integrate more smoothly with Siri for automation purposes. For example, instead of pushing a button, automated shortcuts can be issued by making Siri commands: "Siri, directions for work." "Directions for work" is a Siri phrase that can be set up inside the Shortcuts app.
