If you enjoy apps like IFTTT, you'll want to check out Workflow, a spanking new iOS-only app that takes the concept to the next level.
For those unfamiliar with IFTTT (If This Then That), the app lets you set up a pre-defined set of conditions, which when met, causes a pre-defined action to be taken. It helps immensely in automating tedious or repetitive processes; e.g. whenever someone tags you on Facebook, the app will save that picture into your Dropbox.
What Workflow has going for it is that it covers way more ground: you can chain a series of actions together. The user interface is also easy on the eye, and the same could be said for the process of creating a shortcut; you simply drag and drop the desired actions in the order that you want.
Stack 'em up
There’s a myriad of pre-defined actions that you can choose from – over 100 actions in fact – and the beauty of the design lies in the fact that the actions are simple, and you simply stack them in a logical, step by step manner to accomplish your objective.
Once your workflow is complete you can save it as a shortcut on your home screen. Alternatively, you can create Action Extensions, which are placed in the share sheets of apps instead of the home screen.
The app also has a gallery loaded with workflows that which you can contribute to, of which some of are particularly useful, like a cross-posting shortcut that lets you post your photo across your social media platforms, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Right now the app is going for S$3.98, which is quite a bargain if you appreciate the virtues of these apps and what they can do for you.
