iPhone Productivity Booster

If you’re a regular user of word processors and spreadsheets, you're probably familiar with the power of macros which can record a string of command that can be assigned to a simple key combination.

Well, if you're an iPhone user, there's a tool that exists that allows you to create macros for your smartphone with an app called Workflow.

Workflow gives you the ability to automate various processes and interactions between lots of apps on your phone by dragging and dropping the combination of tasks you desire.

There are over 200 actions that can work with everything from contacts to Calendars, Browsers, Maps, Reminders, Music, Photos, Cameras, AirDrop, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud Documents and much more.

For example, if you're a road warrior and often have the need to search for a local coffee shop, you can create a single tap process using the Workflow app.

What makes this app even better is the plethora of pre-made workflows that have been created by others that have been shared in the gallery; you can quickly leverage the great ideas of other people! .

If you want to boost the power of your iPhone, checkout Workflow in the Apple App store.
