Apple’s acquisition of popular iOS actions automating app, Workflow is a huge step toward building an iOS Everywhere ecosystem.
Workflow lets you combine a series of actions to create new workflows. These actions can encompass multiple steps and multiple apps.
Such Workflow “recipes” can be shared, and are available across a range of tasks, from playing music to creating GIFs and more.
(The Running Late action will find your next event, figure out the travel time, create a text with an ETA and send a message to whoever you are meant to be meeting, for example).
Apple has cut the cost of Workflow (it is now free) and the app remains available at the App Store, so you can download it today. You can create your own workflows using the app’s simple interface. Please take a look at Federico Viticci’s MacStories site to learn how to use Workflow effectively.
“The next level”
Workflow developers Ari Weinstein, Conrad Kramer, and Nick Frey will join Apple to continue working on the app.
"We are thrilled to be joining Apple,” Weinstein said in a statement to TechCrunch.
“We can't wait to take our work to the next level at Apple and contribute to products that touch people across the world."
