Few options 1/5
By sickandtiredof the scam
Everything I want to make a shortcut for it can’t.
The main thing I wanted was to quickly change notifications for a collection of apps.
At work or other such events I like to turn off social media notifications...but at home/leisure I like them on.
Thus a multi step, time consuming process (apps are only listed in alphabetical order and cannot be grouped by type) of changing notifications for each app individually.
Love this app but it need one thing 4/5
By Angel gjekevwojwjd
So I recently started using this app and it’s amazing it makes everything so much easier ( kinda makes me fell like tony stark when talking to Siri I fell like it’s Jarvis) but anyways the only thing it really needs is to get to use more apps the main one I’m asking for is Spotify
By jesus rice crispies
I was directed to download this pile in the pursuit of turning a video into a GIF.
Wow, an app that opens apps
Please read this! 3/5
Hi! I would like this app if it could do I little bit more like opening a website when you run it
I love HomeKit and HomeKit shortcuts just don’t have that much functionality 4/5
By Apple Guy (hey)
For example, You can only change scenes via a Shortcut. There should be that could control just 1 accessory and it’s properties!
Also, like other people, there should be more shortcuts to choose from the gallery and more when you are making one.
* Go Home shortcut (Does the action of the home button)
* Ping an Apple Device (AirPods, iPad, iPhone, etc)
Overall, this is a pretty good app! I love it.
Unable to name shortcut 1/5
What good is it if you cannot name the shortcut? And there was no help screen.

Doesn’t work for YouTube after iOS update :/
Good, but buggy 4/5
By Tim Berts
I love this app and it helps me skip past some of the clunky changes that certain iOS updates have made.
For some reason, whenever I trigger shortcuts in the US via the shortcut widget, every shortcut fails to activate the first time and requires me to cycle through a failure message before working the second time. The odd thing is that whenever I’m traveling outside the US, this bug doesn’t occur ever.
Obviously there is also no easy-to-access portion of this app to submit bug reports.
Very useful, but has some runtime bugs 5/5
Really useful productivity tool with lots of attention to detail. Handy for things like bookmarking Notes pages and robust enough to make a custom reminder management system.
On the downside: Since the kast update, which brought great performance gains, launching Shortcuts by URL does nothing every 10-30 or so launches (I hit it a dozen times a day). Also, occasionally the incorrect line of code is executed. I have if- statements that can never be true, but occasionally the code inside is run (a simple if equals and an alert).
I tried saving a song on my camera roll and when I got on my camera roll the “video” is just a picture and it’s just white
I hate it but give it 5 star hehe 5/5
By Lila Mace
No ability to do the good stuff 2/5
I want the ability to clear safari cache, change WiFi networks and no way to do that. Most of the shortcuts don’t really save much (home eta is already there by maps, timers-just ask Siri, most music shortcuts) pointless (brushing teeth and map got photo that already gives location), or don’t work (exporting blood pressure)
Interesting idea but overblown in what it can do.
Missing Demanding Functionality 4/5
By .: LoveFire :.
There is huge demand on many forums that list amazing shortcuts for the shortcuts app. Though some of the most wanted shortcuts aren’t possible due to the missing functions needed to make the possible. There are to many time when one just can use siri do to having to keep a quiet profile which make these so helpful.
Apple, please add these functions to your shortcuts app:
1. Get last number called out
2. copy last number called
1. Send a text message from last called number
2. notification the text was delivered
1. Ability to “like a song”
2. Ability to “dislike a song”
3. Ability to “bring up star rating menu”
4. Ability to “adjust auto-lock settings”
Pretty Streamlined. 4/5
By Terrance The Human
It’s easy to set up a certain set of actions and make...well... shortcuts. Right now I’m using one to check my cellular usage through tracfone and it’s been working pretty well. I just wish that actions can take place in the background rather than having to open the app each time.
When downloading a video from YouTube, can you please add a feature to change the video resolution when downloading or sharing? (example: 144p, 360p, 480p, 720p and 1080p etc.)
Add To Homescreen Glitch 4/5
By Zoe 401
Every time I choose to add a shortcut to the homescreen, instead of doing it it opens Safari and goes to the page that tells you how to do it. I'm using voiceover if that has anything to do with it.
Can’t even play playlist. 1/5
By Buddha Hat
I’m done. After 15 minutes of trying to get it to just play a freakin playlist I’m deleting this stupid thing. It seems it can’t work with Apple Music files. Even downloaded ones. It seems to want the actual audio files on my phone. But it’s not clear and I’ve wasted enough time on this. Clearer directions or a simple YouTube link to show how do to it would have been nice. Whatever.
Don’t activate Siri ! 1/5
By La Blatte US
Good app as long as Siri has never been activated before, otherwise, it’s dead.
Was using it to turn off WiFi/BT since you can’t do it from the control center anymore....but I made the mistake to activate Siri once....my mistake.
we all want it 3/5
please, i’m begging you! we want spotify shortcuts!! it would make our lives so much easier!
Where’s AirPlay support? 5/5
By D’Anconia Copper
Please add the ability to influence AirPlay outputs for music shortcuts.
Ease of Use? 4/5
For layperson like me, I can’t figure out whether it will let me dictate text into webpage fields asking for input. I looked at documentation but way beyond me. I can see this having huge potential but my learning curve is slow and arduous.
Mixed emotions 2/5
By Chicken Nuggets&Freis
It’s really cool to change colors of apps but after you delete the app it doesn’t let you go to it and I don’t want to apps of the same thing so maybe you should improve that
Messed up 1/5
I deleted the app because when I asked Siri to call someone it took me off what I was doing and now when I ask Siri to call it says that I don’t have an app for that????
By ryia rocks
It is a cool app but it won’t let me add anything to my home screen
Great concept.... 3/5
Great concept but delayed messages does not work unless the app is open and running. Does not run in the background so not very useful.

After update stopped To work

Miss Apple Watch Features 3/5
By Knight Fowl
Workflow was the #1 app for me on my Apple Watch, beside activity. With it, I could easily log information (like caffeine or water) directly into the health app merely by tapping a complication on the watch face. I used it to track notes and requests I would get throughout the day. However, with Shortcuts, those capabilities are severely limited, and if I would like to do the same things, I have to speak directly to Siri to execute them, something that is not normally convenient for me. Please add a Shortcuts app to the Apple Watch, or at least allow Shortcut complications on the Watch.
Beyond that complaint, I truly love Shortcuts. The ability to link with so many different apps is amazing, and I do appreciate its simplicity and capability. I just don’t use it nearly as much as I would (or as much as I used Workflow) merely because it is not easily accessible through the Watch.
Please add power off as a feature 2/5
I'd like to power off the phone as an option. Please add it.
Crashes a lot through the share sheet 2/5
By Matt GD
I can’t use it anymore, it crashes every time I wanna use it with the Share sheet on Safari or any other apps
Google wins this one 1/5
By Aye Q
What kind of mess is this I can’t get it to run the weather then ask me to set an alarm as easily as Google assistant can. Then it doesn’t even say anything it just shows it so quickly you may miss it. I don’t get this one Apple, Google assistant is fun easy to set up and does tons of things (on android). Setting this up feels like it chore. While I hate to admit it because I put apple on such a pedestal I’m slowly leaning back towards android services. Instead of using Shortcuts I’m saying hey Siri open google assistant and letting Google take it from there. The only way this could beat assistant is if you just say hey Siri do this this that and the third
Not very user friendly 1/5
I set up a shortcut triggered by a Siri command, and it worked… Sorta. The shortcut is supposed to record using the front camera a video whenever I tell Siri “I’m being pulled over”. Shortcut starts videoing like it’s supposed to, but the video cannot be found anywhere on my phone after I stop the recording. What good is shooting a video if you can’t recover it?
Setting up a new shortcut is a real pain in the butt, because the instructions on how to do it are very ambiguous.
I am not very impressed with this app.
No Police shortcut 1/5
Bought due to viral threads about the “I’m getting pulled over” shortcut but can’t find it available in the gallery or anywhere else. Running iOS 12.3
actually really good 5/5
By jxn / JBoozer
this is one of my favorite apple apps right now. it's so simple yet has a way of making complex things and i've found it quite useful.
We need a “Make Siri Shut Up” feature 2/5
By Eyes Rolling
The shortcuts work great but I can’t stand to use them.
Here’s the experience I want:
Me: Hey Siri, flashlight
Phone: Turns on flashlight
Here’s the actual experience:
Me: Hey Siri, fla...
Phone: BEEP BOOP!!!
Phone: OK, running shortcut Flashlight blah blah blah
Phone: Finally turns on flashlight
Where’s the “Police” shortcut? 3/5
I can’t find the “Police” shortcut features in Business Insider.
Bad review 1/5
I had watched a video on this and it worked and the next day i did the exact same thing but when I would go to the camera roll all I got were white pages literally white pages in my camera roll😶🤔
AMAZING APP!!!!!!👍👏🏻 5/5
This app is amazing. I can do almost everything on there and I made so many shortcuts that a very useful to me. It helps me almost thing I do.
Missing features 1/5
It should have integration with Switch control!
Horrible app. 1/5
By Andre Villegas
i just got this for the “i’m being pulled over” feature. as soon as i set it up it broke my “hey siri” feature. siri can’t hear me at all anymore.
By Daniel Springer (iOS Dev)
1. Change Ringer volume
2. Toggle Night Shift
3. Toggle orientation lock
4. Copy/move multiple actions
Have no idea how this works. Typical Mysterware. Deleted.
5 Stars! Except... 3/5
I have been a huge fan of this app especially since Apple took it over. It is an awesome app and super helpful.
However, more times than not, especially with the call functions, I get an error that says an unknown error has occurred. Not sure what’s going on.
Love the app will continue to use it if this gets fixed!
Love it 3/5
Love it, I can do many things with it and it saves lots of time. But my problem is I don't like how the app opens when running a shortcut.
