Data Jar is a data store designed to be used with Shortcuts. The data store lets you persist key-value pairs.

If you have used dictionaries and lists in Shortcuts, then you’ll find that the data format used by Data Jar is very similar.

- Extensive support for Shortcuts, enabling you to read and update data directly form Shortcuts.
- Store text, numbers, booleans, lists, dictionaries and even files.
- Files are stored in iCloud Drive.
- Synchronisation between devices using iCloud.

Data Jar is free to use but contains a tip jar where users can pay a few bucks to support the developer.

What’s New

Version 1.1.4

- Improves the stability of Shortcuts actions.
- Disables auto-capitalization and auto-correction when entering a text value.

Amazing app...versatile enough for beginners, but essential for iOS shortcuts power users!

Thanks for such an amazing app, I have been on since early in the beta, and the ability to get files and data in and out, essentially having global variables in iOS shortcuts which means that not all of my data has to go back and forth with the online database API that I use but can be stored locally and improves performance tremendously. Also, the JSON language formatting, being able to store audio, files, text, photos is great. And finally, the multi-select and select all options that debuted with the launch helped me clean up all my testing data really quickly. Amazing app, thank you so much!

If you make shortcuts this app is a must have!

Been using the app for several weeks now. All I can say is this app is awesome. I’ve built several shortcuts that wouldn’t have been nearly as easy to make or as responsive to use without having Data Jar. My only slight feedback/request for a future version would be the ability to protect all the data or only certain data stores with Face ID. Otherwise the app is perfect. Make sure to tip the developer for such an awesome app!!

Amazing app and developer

If you like Apple Shortcuts or are learning how to develop them, this app is a MUST. When I learned JSON, this app became very easy and convenient to use. I recently used it for a project where I setup a flow of shortcuts to save App Store icons, store app info and base64 values as well as the image urls to create visually pleasing menus. This would've been so much work without Data Jar. I now have all this info easily accessible between my devices, in a visually-pleasing format. Thank you, Simon!
