iOS 8 Changed How I Work on My iPhone and iPad

I doubt there’s anyone more committed to maximizing iOS workflows to turn the iPad into a professional workhorse than Federico Viticci of MacStories. Now that iOS 8 has arrived, he’s got the details of how it’s dramatically changed and simplified his workflow.

I built scripts to automate image editing and combine that with Dropbox uploads. I connected apps with x-callback-url to let them collaborate on a single task with one tap. I set up shortcuts in Launch Center Pro and chained actions in Drafts. I let Editorial take care of everything else.

I’m about to throw most of this stuff away with iOS 8.

This is a great overview of how iOS 8 extensions allow apps to work together without the complexity required in earlier versions.
