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!

Awesome Application

I have not only been impressed by the amount of shortcut actions that this application provides, but am also so happy with the developer. I emailed asking if two new actions could be added and not only was the response quick saying that they could do it, but it was actually added to the app quickly! 😃 I cannot recommend this app and developer enough!

Free, open source, privacy-respecting, excellent quality app!

Free, open source, privacy-respecting, excellent quality app! That alone is enough to win me over, but this app is superbly crafted and incredibly useful. It extends the functionality of the shortcuts app by leaps and bounds. Well done, and thank you very much for this wonderful gift to the community!
