Workflow is your personal automation tool, enabling you to drag and drop any combination of actions to create powerful workflows for your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
Workflow includes over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud Drive, and Health, to name a few.
For example, you can use Workflow to:
* Make animated GIFs
* Add a home screen icon that calls a loved one
* Make PDFs from Safari or any app with a share sheet
* Get directions to the nearest coffee shop in one tap
* Tweet the song you're listening to
* Get all of the images on a web page
* Send a message including the last screenshot you took
* And so much more...
Your workflow creations can be launched from inside the Workflow app, from other apps using Workflow's Action Extension, or from our new lightning-fast Today Widget. You can even export a workflow as a standalone app on your home screen.
Workflow opens up infinite possibilities of what you can do with your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. But this is just the beginning. Stay tuned.
Workflow 1.7.8 includes bug fixes and a new action to apply image masks.

Ratings and Reviews
Automate your day.
Took time but I'm there
I have downloaded this app four times. The first three times - meh. On the fourth I started to get it.
I've used it to automate tasks that require multiple taps by using them in the notification centre: playing particular playlists, calling my wife, getting directions. Good, productive, a time-saver, but not necessarily exciting.
My latest 'flow works for me. It's triggered through a URL in a Todoist reminder (weekly, but could be location) that pushes through and asks three questions related to a project I am doing. Those answers are included in a formatted email that is sent to a friend (to show what I have den from that's week) and also to a specific notebook with tags in Evernote to keep track of my progress. (Could possibly also send to a spreadsheet to track progress over time with graphs...)
So it keeps me focused on the basics, and takes care of the back office.
Only four stars, though, because the lack of ecosystem is felt. I use Todoist, Evernote and Informant, and feel some of the limitations. The lack of time-based triggers is also annoying. I'll revise this review to five stars based on this alone.
But persevere. Read around. Get ideas. This can be a great app to take care of things you really don't need to think too much about.
Great for productivity
I’ve just started using this great app. It does what it promises and is easy to use. Am about to create a couple of workflows of my own, and I already feel quite confident, given the intuitive interface. Well done to the developers!
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
