Your shortcuts on your Lock Screen.
LockFlow is an app that allows you to set quick actions always available with one tap from your Lock Screen. You can execute shortcuts from the Shortcuts app, open apps with App Launchers, open custom URL Schemes or create folders. You can have up to 14 widgets in the Lock Screen thanks to interactive widgets.
Run any Siri Shortcuts you created in the Shortcuts app.
Being able to set shortcuts on your Lock Screen is super useful:
⁃ Run home automations with one tap
⁃ Open an alternative camera app
⁃ Get directions to a specific place
⁃ Send a message to someone you frequently text
⁃ Start playing your latest favorite podcast
⁃ Leverage all your existing shortcuts by making them easily accessible
- Support for the Action Button on iPhone 15 models
Configuring LockFlow is a super simple 3 step process.
1. Just set the exact name of the shortcut you want to run.
2. Add a symbol that will be visible on the Lock Screen
3. Add that widget in the Lock Screen
Do it from the Lock Screen, Do it with LockFlow
Focus Widgets allows you to have more than four widgets in the Lock Screen. By using Focus Modes you can change the widgets of your Lock Screen automatically when you set a Focus Mode or when you don't have one active.
Note: The app is free to download and use, but some features may require premium access.

LockFlow 2.1 brings support for the Action Button in iPhone 15 models.
LockFlow 2.0 brought support for iOS and iPadOS 17, and all these new features:
With Interactive Widgets you can now add more widgets to your LockScreen. Before, you add circular or rectangular widgets. With circular widgets you could have up to 4 shortcuts or app launchers. Now, with the new interactive widgets, you can fit up to 14 widgets in the Lock Screen. You want more than 14? Then use Focus Widgets to change your widgets based on your current Focus Mode.
iPadOS 17 brings widgets to the iPad's Lock Screen, and LockFlow is there to customize your device. Classic widgets are available, as well as the new interactive widgets.
iPhones have a special screen when they are charging, locked and in landscape orientation. The new StandBy Mode screen will show scaled up widgets, including those from LockFlow.
Besides these new features, a ton of small bug fixes and improvements have been made to improve the app experience.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy Peasy, user Pleasy! Did what Apple didn’t!
This is a well done app. Firstly it does what apple didn’t do- which was integrate their own software, shortcuts, into their own flagship feature, Lock Screen widgets! I mean come on Apple, you can’t feature a feature in your own feature?!? Anyway, secondly this app is developed admireably, from useability to UI. I got my shortcut set up and running on my Lock Screen right away. And it’s great that it gives you the option to choose an app just in case you are not a shortcuts user. Bonus points for user friendliness! More points for solid developing in the Apple Ecosystem, keeping this free and not spewing ads, needlessly transmitting data, nor abusing the subscription system. It’s nice to see developing done with integrity. Update: Developer is on it with this!

Thank you very much 💙 Sadly we can't run a shortcut in the background. This is a limitation from Apple, that we hope they change in a future iOS release. If I can help you with anything, or you have any suggestions to improve the app, don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Already the best, getting better.
The new lock screen widgets in iOS 16 are great, but limited in capability. There are a lot of apps hitting the App Store that let you run shortcuts, but they are all super clunky.
This is by far the best one out there, and the developer is actively improving it. Recently added the ability to open apps directly, which is a huge feature. Hopefully custom URL schemes are next, which will open up the capability to do just about anything on your phone from the Lock Screen.

Excellent quick start to get things going
Still scratching the surface on this app but straight out, it has solved three of my most annoying issues; can now adjust auto lock time in two clicks, open my hearing aid app in one click, and set call/text wife in two clicks. Good job.
