Creative + Impressive + Really Useful!

I love how creative this app is in providing useful functionality to the Shortcuts app. The actions it adds are really impressive and look like Apple implemented actions with how slick they are. I use Shortcuts on a daily basis and Toolbox Pro actions are in a lot of those actions.

I’m also really impressed with how transparent the developer is on Twitter. They’re open to input and share upcoming features with their community. I give this app 5 stars because of how impressive it is plus how impressive the developer is. Looking forward to seeing where this app goes especially as Shortcuts evolves over time and (hopefully) allows devs to access even more functionality in iOS and iPadOS!! Thank you!!

Worth the price first time I used it!

I found it worth the price of in just two weeks for fully unlocked access! I had been emailed images of text documents that I needed to quickly edit. Instead of laboriously transcribing the text via keyboard, I used the example Scan Text shortcut in Toolbox Pro to convert the images of text into text files, saving me a huge amount of manual typing.

If you are serious about using or creating your own shortcuts, I highly recommend this app.

Thanks, glad you like it!

Rip-off

Don't even bother downloading if you think you are going to get some free "useable" shortcuts. I went through the entire list and every shortcut I was interested in was a paid "Premium" shortcut. I realize developers should be paid for apps that they put in a lot of time to create, but I don't think they should advertise them as free apps with in app purchases if almost every function requires a purchase. Just change the "Get" download option to the price of the app, like honest developers.

Update 2/3/20:
Developer's Response tells me that almost 1/4 are free (13 free out of 100 total = 13 percent free).

Developer Response ,

Almost a quarter of the 100 tools are completely free to use including Global Variables and Preview, which are tentpole features.

On the examples tab, if you go to ‘show all’ and toggle on ‘show only free tools’ you’ll see there are 13 shortcuts built using only the free tools for you to try before you choose to go premium.
