Eleven applications compatible with shortcuts to get the most out of iOS 16

Shortcuts came into our lives as the successor to Workflow, that marvel that seemed doomed to be removed from the App Store and banned for life, and yet was eventually purchased by Apple and integrated natively.

Four years have passed since then and although the path they have taken is perhaps not what we could have expected at the time, especially because they are too passive and waiting for the user to work with them, Yes, there are many ways to use shortcuts in iOS 16. Let’s see.

baby grip

An application for caring for a baby. A key point to keep track of any indicators that we think are relevant or that we want to pay special attention to.

By using abbreviations, we can speed up the introduction of certain types of information. For example when he went to sleep, when he ate or even changed diapers. For some it will be overkill. If this is not your case and you are convinced of what she proposes, go for her.



Would you like to improve your eating habits? If one of your weaknesses is a certain type of food that you want to keep in check, this application serves as a counter for the days you’ve been in control of it.

In addition to the widgets, the shortcuts allow you to quickly enter or read the relevant information. In fact, you don’t even need to open the app.

book track

If you read books, you will surely find it handy to have a way to track the ones you’ve already finished reading, mark them, write down thoughts about them… That’s where Book Track comes in, which does just that.

15 very useful (and sophisticated) shortcuts for iOS 15 that you can change to your liking

And thanks to shortcuts you can also make those progress updates of a book (somewhat ideal when we read on paper) or jot down ideas faster and easier.

game track


Exactly the same as the previous application but geared towards video games. A space to follow what we’re playing, give them a rating or share them.

And with shortcuts, you can quickly perform any of those actions.

Concentrated work

For those whose attention is easily distracted, an application can come in handy to help us focus, whether for work or study.

And that’s where this application comes in, which also does this, taking advantage of the shortcuts so that we can quickly start concentration sessions depending on the preset.



An old acquaintance from the App Store that doesn’t stop updating quickly as soon as a new iOS offers new possibilities. This is the case with Shortcuts, as Parcel offers new ways to find out about the status of our shipments.

For example, you can ask Siri directly about the package you’re waiting for and get an answer with status, current location or estimated delivery date.

good links


An application designed to store the links that we want to keep long term (not as a simple reading list), classify them and start editing.

Thanks to the shortcuts, not only can they be quickly introduced to the application, but also more versatile uses, such as B. bulk export, something that might be useful to handle a certain amount of information… We’ll read later.

music port

Apple Music is missing a feature that has wanted to stand out in the past: directly managing our collection in terms of artists and albums, discovering upcoming releases, recognizing concerts… Everything that surrounds and enhances the music listening experience.

MusicHarbor addresses this lack and, by integrating with shortcuts, allows us to use it quickly without going through the app itself when we don’t want to.



One of the recent fads is the Stoic philosophy and this application promises to help us on the path of serenity and awareness. Who would say to Zenón de Citio that there are also shortcuts.

Shortcuts to start one of your routines (morning or evening), journals, breathing exercises, take a look at the quotes that can inspire us or open the register of emotions.

to match


An accountant. However. Like the buttons. One click, add one. Supports multiple at the same time. And its main attraction is that it allows shortcuts that are different in this type of application.



Also a very old acquaintance is the Fantastical calendar app, which always remains one of the fastest and most versatile apps in its category when it comes to harnessing the power of a new iOS.

With shortcuts it is possible to combine multiple variables to practically achieve what we want. There are so many options that even its developers give some ideas.

Never use abbreviations. It’s definitely missing out on some of what the Apple ecosystem allows for. And while inherently they may not be the most comfortable and natural in certain cases, we encourage you to explore possibilities.
