This app has so many amazing functions, but my favorite is the Global Variable tool. If you’ve used shortcuts much at all, you’ve almost certainly had a moment when you wish that a shortcut could have some kind of memory. To know if it’s been run that day, or to remember a piece of information that changes. A score for a game, a simple tally, and countless other uses. Well that’s exactly what Global variable does.

Beyond that, toolbox pro has lots of great functions that shortcuts can’t normally do, and even more functions that you could pull off in the shortcuts app, but that would be so cumbersome that they’re not worth it. But in Toolbox Pro, it’s right there, and works just the way it says.

Seriously, if you like shortcuts at all, download this.

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.
