You Can Now Use Siri Shortcuts On These Third-Party Apps


Apple recently started rolling out iOS 12 to a bunch of iOS devices, which also meant the Shortcuts app was finally made available on the App Store. The app, which works quite a lot like IFTTT on Android, allows users to create custom shortcuts for apps and actions that they use the most. The Shortcuts app naturally works with a number of native iOS apps like Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari and Health, but that’s not all.
