I like iOS Shortcuts! Here are some examples of Shortcuts that I find useful.

Tweet Actions #

(iOS, Share Sheet) For many years I was a Twitter power-user. In order to make my life a little better, I created a Shortcut that would serve as a quick launch for common actions I'd like to take on a tweet:

  • 🧵 Unroll Thread
  • 🐤 Open in Tweetbot
  • 🎥 Download GIF

Each of these actions would just run another Shortcut, passing along the URL as input. This is a helpful pattern I use in other Shortcuts.
