How to quickly get directions to any address on your iPhone


Nov 15, 2013

Apple's taken a bunch of steps in the past few years to make it easier to find directions for any given address, including data detectors*that intelligently make addresses tappable in Messages, Maps search suggestions in Safari, and more. But the system isn't perfect, and I often find myself executing far too many steps every time I want to get directions for a location ? even more so if I want to use Google Maps.
Instead, I offer a simpler solution: Using [URL="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/workflow-powerful-automation/id915249334?mt=8&at=10l3Vy]Workflow[/URL], you can quickly get directions to any address from your clipboard.

Don't want to go through the hassle of copying and pasting an address from one place to your Maps app of choice, waiting for directions to load, and so on? This fixes all that.
