Supercharge your shortcuts with lots of useful actions.

It provides additional actions for the Shortcuts app.

IMPORTANT: Because of an macOS bug, to make the actions show up in the Shortcuts app, you need to first launch the app and then restart your device.

重要提示:由于 macOS 错误,要使操作显示在“快捷方式”应用程序中,您需要先启动该应用程序,然后重新启动设备。

WICHTIG: Aufgrund eines macOS-Fehlers müssen Sie, damit die Aktionen in der Shortcuts-App angezeigt werden, zuerst die App starten und dann Ihr Gerät neu starten.

IMPORTANT : en raison d'un bug macOS, pour que les actions s'affichent dans l'application Raccourcis, vous devez d'abord lancer l'application, puis redémarrer votre appareil.

IMPORTANTE: Debido a un error de macOS, para que las acciones aparezcan en la aplicación Atajos, primero debe iniciar la aplicación y luego reiniciar su dispositivo.

The actions are not able to run on Apple Watch or HomePod.

Restart your device if the actions don't show up in the Shortcuts app.

The app is free without ads because I love making apps. Consider leaving a nice review.

11/10 - An Amazing App for Anyone Needing Additional Shortcut’s Actions!

Though Actions is very similar to Toolbox Pro, there are numerous Actions available that Toolbox Pro doesn’t have, so if you’re someone who has seen this and ignored it due to that fact then I’d highly suggest giving it an opportunity! One Major difference of the two, currently, seems to be that unlike Toolbox Pro, Actions has an Active Developer that is consistently updating the app with bug fixes and loads of additional actions while Toolbox Pro’s Developer has begun to focus on their other apps/projects, which is understandable though still a tad disappointing…

Personally, though, I know I’ve got high hopes for this App and it’s Developer(s)! I’ll definitely be in contact soon to suggest some of my ideas for additional actions!

Thanks a Bunch for this App and Keep Up the Fantastic Work!

Fantastic for Power Users

This app is for you if you’re the kind of power user with dozens of Shortcuts who has been frustrated by the limitations of the built-in actions. This app provides almost all the tools I’ve been missing, and it works amazingly well.

I had tried another actions app before, but it had everything behind a paywall, and I wasn’t able to try a single action I was interested in. Actions, on the other hand, is free with no ads, so I was able to verify that it would satisfy my needs. I asked the author for one small feature, and he responded within hours to say it would be added in the next version. Happy camper.
