Way to many premium Tools

Some tools like “get connection stats” have no use as the tools that go with it are premium

Stuff your phone can do - now from Shortcuts!

Great app, links Shortcuts with all the functions of your phone - image recognition one of my favourites! Plus adds some useful scripting actions like de-duplication and if or!

Any chance of a Mac app??!

Shortcuts Supercharged

Like shortcuts? Get this app.

Update: once again I can’t believe this app exists and if you use shortcuts you should already own it.

Please Apple, give this dev a bunch of money and make these native shortcut actions.
