Workflow or ‘Shortcuts’ being standard in iOS 12
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:46:59 AM »

I read that iOS 12 will have something called ‘Shortcuts’ included as standard and that this will either be the same as the existing Workflow app or at least similar. Has anyone tried this out in iOS 12? Will Shortcuts be a complete replacement or an effective one, or a superset or upgrade? Will Workflow continue to exist even?

If Shortcuts turns out to be an effective replacement for Workflow, then one can only hope that it will fix the current crippling bugs that make it completely impossible to achieve certain programming goals. The bugs that come to mind being (i) that of returning a filename instead of the contents of a file under certain circumstances and (ii) not allowing files to be accessed that are not in the /workflow/ path if you explicitly specify the name and path in the program, as opposed to the file’s handle being obtained by letting the user use the manual file selector ui.
