A little broken… 4/5
I do like it so far, but I noticed how the 3D Touch doesn’t work very well within the app. Tried to delete a workflow using 3D Touch & do get options & “delete” was one of them, but it doesn’t delete the workflow. So I had to use “Edit” to delete it.

Great app but needs some major improvements 3/5
I love this app to let me be able to create easy shortcuts to do so much. However, it could improve if you partner with other apps so you could shortcut like that. Say I wanted to make a shortcut telling my phone whenever you connect to Bluetooth open Spotify and play music, get it? Or open a different maps,weather, or email app? All while using shortcuts. I just feel like with how technology is and is still becoming, there is alot Workflow can offer but just isn't there!!!
Great! But... 4/5
This is an extremely powerful app and can do so many things for me but I don’t use Apple Music. Support for Spotify in the future? Google photos?
Something it’s getting wrong in the app, why I cannot download videos or other stuffs? Is there any bug that it’s causing issues?
great app. just get it already!
Very useful app! 5/5
I’m just getting into automating computer tasks and found this app. It’s very useful and not too difficult to figure out. I’ve downloaded workflows from the gallery and then edited them to suit my uses.
Incredible & Amazing 4/5
By Maj Grubert
This app improves my iPhone/iPad experience. (Soon to include the watch). This is a true workflow app. It allows the combination of multiple steps too save time.
Four Stars based on this excellence.
Five Stars when they allow more features in the tool;
Useful - But Doesn’t Work Through iOS Widget 2/5
This app is cool with how it can interface with many different parts of iOS. But it falls down with its widget support. Any workflow which requires input from the person - whether via predefined selections or manual entry - will crash and fail when running from the Workflow Widget.
This makes the app very un-useful because that means I must now open the app and fin the workflow and launch it from within the app. If I’m going to do that, I may as well just manually do the task outside the workflow.

Very nice 5/5
I wondered what I would do with this app after I downloaded, but after a while it made sense. This program takes multiple step processes we do on a smart phone and walks you through it to complete them. It also puts these process on your home screen so all you have to do is open it and you will go through it. Awesome!

Nice effort 1/5
If the sharing option actually worked this would be a neat idea, but it doesn’t, so it isn’t.
I’m Impressed 5/5
I’ve been using Apple products exclusively for about 7 years now. I thought I knew everything my current phone was capable of. But with Workflow, I have found a whole new world of functions I never imagined my phone being capable of doing. For a free app, this is very neat.
Fun and easy 5/5
Fun and easy
Good, but needs improvement 3/5
This is a great concept, but it’s frustrating that it requires you to use only apps that are owned by Apple. I would like to use the music workflows to play music from Spotify, but it’s not an option on this app.
Awesome concept 5/5
By Herky the hawk
Great for those that do repetitive task and want to save time. Would love to see a timer option. Maybe on iOS 12
Wish there was a means of keeping open workflows on device rather than needing to re-save to desktop completed or favorited workflows. Also, workflows could be presented somewhat more appealing to the first time user who may expect for a completed workflow to have somewhat of a GUI.
beat app 5/5
By sno wihe
i found this app recently & OMG so amazing
for sure deserve 5 Star
DONT GET IT 1/5
THIS APP FROZE MY PHONE IT IS HORRIBLE THIS IS WHY ONE STAR
Good start 4/5
Overall great interface and examples. Very limited in what it can do at this time - need to be able to initiate workflow based on location, time, and other triggers, as well as support opening and controlling more apps - starting with Apple Podcast.
This app works with all kind of third party apps, and integrates perfectly. I have no complaints. Simply fabulous.
great application 5/5
By abo ward
Love the LACK OF In-App Instruction! 1/5
• If you want to automate something meaningful, besides “playing your favorite iTunes DRM-protected music” or “”have your Fitbit automatically Tweet, Facebook, and Instagram your latest awesome Nike™ workout”, be prepared for internet research.
• During your research you’ll discover all you can do is bullet-#1-type tasks.
• Whoopee, jams and workouts by Nike ™ automated!
Definitely convenient! 5/5
So far, so good! It would be nice to have a little more resources and tutorials, but after some web searching, I got the gist of designing the workflows. I made to one to log my weight, body fat%, then calculate and log lean body mass and BMI in the health app. Definitely simpler than entering them all individually!
Not user intuitive 3/5
I became so confused about how to set up a "workflow". It is not my first time using an automation app. But this one seems to be built for scientists, not an ordinary Jane like me who just wants to make whatsapp open youtube links in the actual youtube app. I deleted it after a couple days of trying to make it work for me.
Needs Siri Support 4/5
Now that this app is owned by Apple, it should have Siri support so that people can say, “Hey Siri, run my _____ Workflow”
One of two indispensable iOS automation tools 5/5
iOS automation is alive and well, and Workflow and Drafts 5 are all you need. I love Workflow. It can't do everything you need if you're a serious power user, but it can come close. In addition, it gives you hours of enjoyment building up your workflow actions.
If you're even remotely interested in task automation or setting up script-like actions, you have to have Workflow.

Wow, I've needed this app for so long without knowing it
By B. Ahmad
There is a learning curve, but once you figure it out, it is life changing. Things I thought were only possible on my MacBook can be done on a cell phone, related to automation.
This only thing that would make this app even better now that’s it’s controlled by apple would be Deeper OS and Siri integration. I think it could allow Siri to become a lot smarter especially if Siri is allowed to look at preexisting workflows and create new temporary ones to complete a voice task. I can see this app working as a simple backend for a frontend for iOS automation and machine learning. It has so much potential. Especially if Siri is able in the future to deep learn our pronunciation for accuracy.
Has Great Potential 4/5
I have not made many widgets yet, but I’ve made a few so far, and they work wonderfully. I personally recommend that for some of the actions (i.e. Share, Open In…) specific apps and locations can be chosen within the widget itself, instead of running the widget and then choosing the location while it is running. Other than small stuff like this, that I’m sure will be worked on with time, this app runs wonderfully.
One star 1/5
This app need to be updated and most of add-ons doesn’t work, why did apple bought this while they can’t keep it up to date and enhanced like any app.
Cool to play around with, can make iOS really work for pros 4/5
Workflow is a great way to automate multi-step and multi-app processes on iOS. If you’ve ever been frustrated that the seemingly-only way to accomplish a complex task is to tap, tap, tap, scroll, select, tap, invoke app switcher, slide, slide, tap, tap, app switcher, slide, complete task (if sadistic them you’re required to repeat this over and over).
Instead, Workflow gives you a bright gallery of common automated tasks and lets you select and customize them to your needs. Best to start here, but you can explore by sliding your finger from right to left, revealing neatly categorized workflow bits that you can piece together in novel ways to do a lot of cool stuff.
You can invoke Workflows from the app itself, but it’s more seamless to invoke the app’s widget and you’ll get a block of colorful-mini bar buttons - you can choose which of them are shown here. You can also have Workflows as Action items which appear in the iOS Share sheet as a single Workflow icon which pulls up an page of your designated Action items to use on whatever you are ‘sharing.’ This could be a web page (URL, entire page, just the article, picture(s), pdf, etc.), some selected text, a document, an image, and more. You can choose what your workflow action accepts when you create it. Workflows can also be accessed by 3D/Force Touching the app icon or by creating a ‘app’ icon for your home screen that launches that workflow once pressed.
One of my own workflows is a share action which adds the article/text, the title, the date, and the URL of a web page to the Title, Date and text of a new Note in Notes. It’s a more basic Evernote clipper but for Notes (which only saves the page URL if you access through it’s share extensions). I have others that rotate multiple selected pictures in your photo library at your choice of 90 degree increments. Or re-save multiple selected PNG Images, convert them and save the newly much smaller sizes. So many possibilities, and the drag and dropping of the component boxes makes what happens very explicit. There’s lots more than I can quickly mention - it’s a great way to learn more about automation and add some of it to your life in iOS.
Nice but 4/5

Nice app but there are no new updates or new tools since a while
The missing link! 5/5
Automating my needs on my watch. Very nice!
Good app, little buggy 4/5
The app just straight up crashes when I feed it some urls on the "Get Contents of URL" action specifically.
Otherwise, it's a wonderful app!
Only One Flaw 4/5
By Martinez, Lalo
Great app, the only thing I am having trouble with is the widget part of the app doesn't work when I try to put in music playlists.
Disclaimer: I’m a huge fan of Apple Products and this one is free and awesome!
I just found this APP and after looking at other solutions, and I chose this one because it’s owned by Apple. No extra sign ups and garbage in email. I prefer native apps when I can get the functionality that I need.
I work for a large corporation and on my PC(yuck!) IT Dept has my Chrome browser locked down 🙄, and you know what I’m talking about. Anyways, I have a ton of repetitive tasks that I do each day. I have saved myself tremendous time, limited mistakes, and provided myself a bit more confidence on my making my corporate goals just by incorporating workflow into my productivity scheme. I’m still learning how best to use it, but it has me excited.
I use it with Todoist(unfortunately Reminders is lacking), Camera, Calender, standard file manipulations, and other native iOS apps.
Now that Apple owns this app I’m truly hoping that their is support for other native apps, like numbers, keynote, etc. I’d easily pay for this App once that is accomplished.
Great workflow app 5/5
I rarely write reviews for apps. But this one is awesome! You really want to try it out!
This app makes my life better. Add more actions please! 5/5
I love this app. I just want more actions with more apps.
Really useful, could be better 4/5
I mostly wish there was a way to debug why certain workflows take too long or don’t work as designed. But otherwise, I’m very happy!
UPDATE 4/18/18 I'm noticing recently that my workflows for music are not working as expected in two ways: 1. Clear Up Next is not working at all. 2. The Find Music function is not sorting my music by album track number.
Lots of functionality 4/5
Love it! They just need to add new apps like google drive and add more iOS controls.
Please Apple 5/5
Don't kill this great app!
Broken in 11.3 1/5
Widgets are completely broken in iOS 11.3. Don’t download.
There is potential 3/5
It have potential to become a better app but unfortunately at the current time it is lacking features and simplicity of use.
Amazingly powerful, can’t wait for more! 5/5
By The pale kid
Awesome access to powerful iPhone functions I’m so happy Apple decided to empower their users like this. Would it be possible to add a suggestions box in the forums? It would be awesome to access system and app setting from within work flow, like the music EQ, and assistive touch. Also love the compatibility with Pythonista. I can’t wait to do more, with the awesome tools! Thanks Apple!
