As seen in WWDC, but with one big problem
It’s great. But here in China Shortcut has some serious blundering in address regarding shortcuts regarding the Maps app. When address input is in Chinese (with iPhone language set Chinese), the Shortcut seems to disregard anything in address line one and two and province and only registers contents in the “country/region” column. This produces ludicrous results. I entered the address of subway station in full (with the country/region filled “中国”—China), only to have it redirecting me to somewhere way north (I am in Guangzhou, which is not far from HK).
I guess the reason is that address in Chinese is written the reverse way as in English, starting with country name and ending with specific street#. But Shortcut apparently does not realize this. It mistakes “中国” in the first line (as anything searched by Maps is put) as the street name. For a specific place I could manually enter the street name in country/region column with everything else blank, but for anything that’s done by Shortcut and Maps, like “Walk to Coffee Shop”, there’s basically no way that it can be used. Plz fix this ASAP🤔
As a big fan of Workflow, it's good to see it gaining some deeper hooks into the operating system now that it's an official app. Some of the new actions are handy, but the best part is the potential, both with Siri integration but more importantly with 3rd party apps now being able do define their own "shortcuts" that can be used here.
The only thing I miss is the IFTTT integration. I'm working around it currently by using webhooks, but hopefully IFTTT can publish shortcuts from their end soon to fill the gap.
The other gap which still remains (which was also the case with Workflow) is integration with Google products. Some may get implemented from Google's end, but Files support will need to come from Apple.
These are all surface level things that I don’t need quick fixes for. I tried making my own but it seems I can’t make them change actual things on my phone. I’ve been trying to learn a new language and one of the ways to do this is to immerse yourself in the language and learn by context. So I decided to try and make a shortcut that would let me change the language with a tap of a short cut and back again so if I actually have to text. BUT I CAN’T! So what’s the point? I don’t need a button to play my playlist from my home screen that what the music widget is for! So what is the point of this app???
I’m sure somebody gets use out of this but, these seem like such specific things. Obviously my thing is specific too, but if you’re going to pander to these specific things. Why not mine? I don’t know any way to share this request so I wrote this review. But I have no clue if this will be seen sooo... 😕🤷♂️
