    It’s a bit messy isn’t it? Not exactly the simplist of apps to set up

    Been on it for months in beta. Once you get used to automation it is super useful.

    For example, I have a shortcut that will tell me how long it will take to get to work, open maps with my work address already populated then open Overcast and start my podcast queue. And all I need is tell Siri that I am heading to work.

    Same here. I’m finding it a little clunky to set up. Not as smooth as launch pad was in blackberry....but totally different animal of course. Lol

    I’ve only set 2 things up and I’m not even sure how they’ll work out

    I have some existing Workflow things that I still use from the old version, but I haven't even started looking into Siri Shortcuts yet. However, I'm glad that more apps will have hooks into the Shortcuts app going forward than with the Workflow app.

    If you have Workflow things already, will they move over to Shortcuts easily?

    Mine are all there and so far all the ones that I have tested work fine. (I have a workflow that extracts the text from a shared tweet, gets the HTML of the tweet, converts it to PDF, and saves the tweet text and the PDF to a Note, so that I can save tweets that I may want to read later. Sharing the tweet itself - at least from Twitteriffic or Tweetbot - just shares a t.co short URL that creates a generic icon without text in the Notes app, meaning that I never knew what it was that I shared with just a glance. I also have one that shares a PDF of an article I am reading in my local newspaper's app to an iCloud folder for later reading/printing.)

    I would think so, since the 'new' app is just Workflow with the name scribbled out and 'Shortcuts' added in crayon...

    I set up the "say cheese" shortcut shown in the Shortcut gallery, but I didn't realize, or forgot, to activate Siri and record "Say Cheese". After fumbling around with App, I finally managed it!

    I'm hoping that some "how to's" will appear on iMore with step by step directions! @lorygil @reneritchie

    Same app, just a new name. That might help a bit in getting started.
