What’s New

Version 2021.1

Many tools have redesigned to be more powerful on iOS14. 

'Filter Images', 'Get Text From Image', 'Create Icon', 'Detect Faces' and many other tools no longer require bouncing over to the Toolbox Pro app to function, making them easier to use and keeping your workflows right inside the Shortcuts app.

Saving, getting and listing the contents of bookmarked folders (outside of the Shortcuts sandbox folder) can now be done right inside Shortcuts *and* these tools are all now free to use!

Tools that manipulate lists like sorting, shuffling or removing duplicates can now handle many more items at once.

'Get Text From Audio' can now transcribe many more languages and can optionally perform more detailed recognition online (with a 1-minute limit).

Brand New Tools
+ Pick A Colour
+ Is Silent Mode On
+ Pluralise Words
+ Is Premium Unlocked
+ Find Pexel Photos & Videos
+ Get what3words Address
+ Format Number As Text
+ Build URLs (from components)

- All examples have been updated to take advantage of the new tools.
- The global variable editor now shows previews when storing base64 images.
- Bug fixes
