Apple has released an update to its Workflow app for iOS that brings a new Mask Image action, new fields to the Add Things To-Do action, and other improvements.

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.

● Dictionary items are now reorderable in the Dictionary action
