Apple Showcases Apps That Offer Siri Shortcuts Integration

The release of iOS 12 saw the debut of the new Siri Shortcuts feature that is designed to allow users to create automated processes using both first and third-party apps.

App developers continue to add Siri Shortcuts support to their apps, and on Thursday, Apple showcased several of these apps.

Top apps are integrating Siri Shortcuts, making favorite apps even easier to use with a simple tap or by asking Siri. Now available with iOS 12, shortcuts use powerful on-device intelligence to help users get things done faster, whether it’s commuting, being more productive, staying healthy, and more. Here are some top apps that now offer Siri Shortcuts.

Highlighted apps include the following (via Apple):

  • Weather reports from top apps like The Weather Channel, CARROT and Dark Sky are quickly delivered with simple voice requests like “radar,” “rain report” and “UV index.”
  • Citymapper helps manage the morning commute with real-time departures, line status and disruption alerts, and whether you travel by bus, train, bikeshare or Uber, using Siri Shortcuts on the Transit app makes it a snap to get where you need to go.
  • Evernote has created shortcuts to easily share notes, create audio and camera notes and print.
  • Create and update journal entries and record audio directly in the Day One app.
  • Schedule and preview the day’s calendar for upcoming events and meetings with Fantastical.
  • At work and at home, users can streamline projects, boards and cards with shortcuts in Trello, Omnifocus 3 and Things.
  • Log calories and water easily with apps like Lose It!, Yazio and Waterminder.
  • Use a shortcut to track habits with Streaks.
  • Start a meditation for any time of day with 10% Happier or Headspace.

Siri will suggest simple, useful shortcuts right when needed on the Lock screen or in Search, based on how customers use their devices. Tap the “Add to Siri” button in apps, or go to “Settings” -> “Siri & Search” to find all shortcuts available from your installed apps and to set a personal phrase to run the shortcuts.
