Workflow is Automator for iOS

Workflow

We talked a little bit about automation on last week’s Clockwise and I lamented that I’ve never been very good at actually putting together workflows. But this new app—let’s call it “Automator for iOS, only better”—looks amazing. I’ve played around with it for just a few minutes this morning, and I’ve hardly scratched the surface of what it lets you do.

Between this, IFTTT, Launch Center Pro, and Editorial (the latter two of which Workflow provides hooks for), there’s are some really impressive automation tools for iOS devices. If anything’s going to make people—including me—eat their words about just how much iOS is capable of, it’s the kind of power user features that, to date, have mainly been limited to the Mac

Hey, you know what would make this app really handy? Workflows that you could launch from a Notification Center widget. *cough**cough*
