Apple Launches Shortcuts App Beta for Developers

Posted by · 8568 views · Translate

Apple has launched the first beta of Shortcuts for developers. Shortcuts is an app that allows you to create your own personal iOS shortcuts with multiple steps. The build is number 1A13a.

Siri Shortcuts deliver a new, much faster way to get things done with the ability for any app to work with Siri. Siri intelligence can suggest an action at just the right time — whether it’s to order a coffee in the morning or start an afternoon workout. Users can customize Shortcuts by creating a simple voice command to kick off the task or download the new Shortcuts app to create a series of actions from different apps that can be carried out with a simple tap or customized voice command. It’s easy for developers to take advantage of this new capability using Shortcut APIs.
