My collection of iOS Shortcuts (Workflows)

These are some Shortcuts I find useful.

Where to use them

On Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

Allowing these to work

As a safety measure, by default, downloaded shortcuts won't work, so you have to turn on a setting.

  1. Open "Settings"
  2. Select "Shortcuts"
  3. Enable "Private Sharing"

If this makes you anxious, turn it off after downloading any shortcuts. If you're super nervous, Shortcuts will show you what's being installed before you commit to it, so have a look to see if you think it's an evil shortcut.
