**** TESTIMONIALS ****
"LaunchCut was an instant replacement for ShortCuts on my home screen."
"The only proper way to Shortcuts is to LaunchCuts. Don't be stuck in a maze of clutter."
"I highly recommend LaunchCuts whether you’re a relative newcomer to Shortcuts or a power user with a sizeable library of Shortcuts to manage."
"Finally an easy and quick way to organise and find those Shortcuts you built to save you time!"
"LaunchCuts is the answer to a wishlist I didn’t know I had."
"LaunchCuts provides many of the sorts of options power users have been crying out for since the early days of Shortcuts and its predecessor, Workflow. Anyone with more than a couple of screens of shortcuts should absolutely give this app a try. It has the potential to revolutionize how you manage and work with your shortcuts."

Ratings and Reviews
Needed? Maybe not. Useful? Absolutely!
I don’t typically write app reviews but this one definitely warrants one.
If you are using Shortcuts as a daily, and happen to have 25 or more shortcuts listed, this app is a no brainer. You can organize all those shortcuts in any way imaginable. By name, icon, etc. Resize your grid to make more fit on one screen. Use folders and smart folders to automatically organize them into your daily routines. Initiate your edit to the shortcuts directly from the app. With the right setup, this could be a "launcher" of sorts. If you happen to have 50, 75, or 100 shortcuts, this app is a MUST - full stop. Sure the price is off-putting, but the value is worth it. This contains many "organizational" features I wish Shortcuts had out of the gate.
If you use Shortcuts regularly, then get this!
Beautiful companion app for Shortcuts. Organization in Shortcuts is well, none. A massive list that you can change the order (which is nightmarish to begin with). LaunchCuts allows infinite ways to organize your shortcuts based on any number of criteria and keep your head from exploding. You can even run this in split screen multiple times for organizing OR run it along side shortcuts to be able to jump in and out of shortcuts without having to use Shorts list handling.
It’s fast, responsive and often updated. The developer listens to the users and stays on top of things.
Will iOS 14 replace this? Not really. While iOS 14 will add the ability to create folders in your shortcut list, its just a file/folder structure. Once you move a shortcut to a sub folder, then that’s it. It can only be in one place. LaunchCuts allows you to create any number of folders that can contain any and all Shortcuts. You might have Shortcuts that might need to appear in multiple folders and LaunchCuts will do this.
If you have more than a couple dozen Shortcuts and you are an active user, then don’t hesitate to get this.
Just keeps getting better
I’ve been using Siri Shortcuts only a short time but they were accumulating fast and I saw organization was going to be a challenge if I let it go to long. I just happened to stumble on this app. The cost seemed steep (one of the top 5 most expensive I own, but I’m frugal with my app budget) but it is worth every penny. It did most everything I was trying to do with spreadsheets, and so much more. If you use Shortcuts, this is the first support app you need. Just opened the app and read the update notes for version 1.4.0 and it just keeps getting better!!!
