Bravo Apple, great idea and long awaited solutions to many cumbersome limitations of iOS, such as simply its inability to automatically disable all wireless communication or enable do-not-disturb mode. However, I can’t find an option for triggering automation really fully automatically , I.e without asking me about my permission/waiting for me tapping on a notification on lock screen. Without that it is barely an automation!
Worse, I have written all the above with iphone in mind, the version on ipad is a far cry even from it. One most painfully and staggeringly experiences the total incompability so that shortcuts created on iphone refuse to work on ipad , and as for the automation - there is no automation on ipad at all! - incredible, pityful, and hard to believe! In nutshell, the shortucts on ipad are a mere shadow of the ones on iPhone and are completely useless for the most part.
Speaking of automation:
You could also widen the functionality of MAC Automator. Currently there is quite a lot basic things one cannot achieve with it.
Overall, it is great that you Apple develops this very useful stuff but there is quite a long road ahead, in particular for iPad.
It’s great and I use it everyday but I’m disappointed
I can built many advanced flows but original Workflow app had ability to run them from the Watch as well, please add that! Also creation of longer flows is very tedious on a small iPhone screen, would be great to do that through the Mac app. Unfortunately the way the whole thing syncs between iPad and iPhone doesn’t let you easily tell which is the latest version you’re working on (whether it was synced from another device yet) etc etc. it’s made to be powerful but lacks some things that would really allow that.
Very promising tool. Hope Apple will build more features into it.
Very promising tool. Hope Apple will build more features into it. I would love to see a feature to return to the place where the workflow was intitated. Eg. when I am shaing an link from a browser I would like to be able to run a workflow that then returns to the browser.
