Apple Shortcuts

 
 

Some of the Automation tools available here are made with an Apple app called Shortcuts. Here’s how to install and use them.

  1. Update your iPhone or iPad to the latest version of iOS, 12 or later.

  2. Download the Shortcuts app. It’s free from Apple.

  3. On your iOS device, find the Prolost Shortcut you wish to install here on this site.

  4. Tap the Install button.

You’ll be taken to an iCloud link that will allow you to complete the installation process.

To run the shortcut, open the Shortcuts app and tap the thumbnail. Be careful not to tap the ⋯ button, as that will open the Shortcut for editing.

But hey, feel free to tap that ⋯ button and poke around in the Shortcut to see how it works!

Running Shortcuts

The best way to run Shortcuts is from the Today Widget. After you add Shortcuts to your Today screen, you can control which Shortcuts appear there by “Customize in Shortcuts.”

Some Prolost Shortcuts are available in the Apple Share Sheet. You’ll have to turn on Shortcuts manually there as well.
