Shortcuts starts its beta phase among developers

At WWDC 2018 Apple announced a new native app for our iPhone and iPad that will arrive with iOS 12 in the fall. This application is Shortcuts , the one we used to know as Workflow which was bought by Apple itself and we have seen that they are working hard on this purchase to make the most of it. The main beneficiary of this native application will be Siri which will give you more functionality by being able to create a workflow between our applications natively. From today, developers can start testing it and of course get all the benefits.

This application seems very interesting, although if we want to take advantage of it we should spend some time figuring out what recipes we should make , something I criticized personally since this would be the only improvement of Siri, and I see it as insufficient and also complex for the most basic users.

This is an application that is currently available in beta for developers, but you won’t be able to get it if you have a fake developer profile installed. This is because Apple requires a more detailed registration to obtain this beta in TestFlight, so if you are not a developer who is aware of your fees. This beta app is obviously limited so developers have a fairly low number of shortcuts and options.

Despite this, if you want to try out a very similar application I invite you to download Workflow as it is basically the same, although obviously we hope that Shortcuts will have many more changes and above all that it will be very intuitive for the most basic user.

We will have to wait to see this application in operation on our iPhones, at least until autumn with the launch of iOS 12, if it is not delayed , although we will probably see a public beta soon depending on the evolution it has in the beta phase for developers.
