Help with using in shortcut across devices

Hello! I have a text transformation I use to lowercase+kebab case some text. I saved it as a custom function on my iPad for use in a shortcut. It works great. When I go to my iPhone copy of Esse, that custom function isn't available. I recreated it with the exact same name but the shortcut errors out when run.

Is there a way to use a custom function in a shortcut and have it work on both my iPhone and iPad?


UPDATE: I was able to split my custom function's transformations up into individual built-in functions, eliminating my need to sync across devices. Now my shortcut works on each device as expected.

Developer Response ,

Custom functions are not synced between devices as of now, you have to re-create them on each device.

Can you please email me at so I could help you with the issue you’re facing on iPhone?

A rare thing, this.

Very rarely do you come across an app that is both exceptionally functional and tastefully designed and a pleasure to use. Even more so because ESSE is the passion project of a single, FEMALE developer.

This app is the Swiss Army knife of text cleaning and modulation. Arrogant bro-coders take note: here is an app that executes sterile functions wrapped in a humanistic and inviting ui that pleases the masses and keeps getting bette...girls rule and boys drool.

What an app SHOULD BE.

I want to use this so bad, however in iOS 13 tbeee is not way to minimize the keypad—and seeing as the functions to select are at the bottom fot ej screen/—it just woes the work
Fabulous idea and hopefully someone comes around and emulates this, however they actually test for show-stopper ls such as this.

You are correct, I never thought I click on the screen to close the keypad. (It’s kind of fluid too. I like it. I’ve changed my review to 5 stars and please accept my apology. It might not hurt to include the minimize control on the keypad too.

Fantastic app. I have some questions /enhancement suggestions I’ll send a direct email.

You can dismiss the keyboard by tapping anywhere on the screen.

I'll consider adding a "Hide keyboard" button to make it more obvious.
