My custom workflows for Workflow.app
Workflow is a visual programming language for iOS to create powerful automated workflows. The workflows are basically mini apps, like the iPhone equivalent of building scripts and CLIs.
Workflow also includes a standard library of actions like opening a URL in Safari or saving a file to Dropbox. Their app was acquired by Apple in 2017 and subsequently made free.
I've built a variety of workflows, big and small, to simplify problems that are otherwise tedious to accomplish on an iPhone.
Parking Garage - Save & recall where you parked in a big parking garage.
Smart Time - Automatically calculate the time it takes to walk or drive to a common destination and notify the other person of when you'll arrive.
Brush Teeth - A 2-minute timer for brushing your teeth that pulses every 30 seconds to switch quadrants.
Clipboard New Tab - Open a new tab in Safari from the URL on the clipboard in one tap. Useful for apps like Instagram that don't support normal ways of breaking out of the app into a browser.
HN - One tap access to Hacker News.
