Workflow, an iOS app that automates many tasks on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, was released back in December 2014 taking advantage of the possibilities allowed by iOS 8. Now the popular iOS automation app announced on Tuesday that its latest update adds support for Apple Watch and comes loaded with 200+ automated actions to your wrist.
“Workflows automate things you do every day by connecting your favourite apps and services together. Now workflows can help you do less with your phone, and more from your wrist”, Workflow said on its new website for Apple Watch.
With Apple Watch, and Workflow 1.2 or later installed on iPhone, users can download and access more than 200 actions – specifically built for Apple’s wrist Watch – right from their wrist, without interacting with the iPhone. Some examples include automating emails, saving data to Dropbox, managing notes, settings reminders, and more.
If you’re an existing Workflow user, you’ll be please to learn that all your Workflow actions on the iPhone will automatically appear on your Apple Watch and runs smoothly, and with this latest update users can also transfer information from the Watch to the iPhone through Handoff.
A swipe left on the screen will give you access to the Workflow Gallery where you can find useful workflows design specifically for your Apple Watch and download then instantly. Those Workflow actions can then be access by raising your wrist and swiping up from he bottom of the screen, and you’ll see Workflow’s Glance. A single tap on your desired workflow will execute that action.
Here are some of the Workflow actions available on your Apple Watch:
- Create Reminders
- Record Audio
- Request an Uber
- Getting directions
- and many more…
To celebrate support for Apple Watch, the latest version of Workflow app for iOS is available for only $2.99, down from $4.99. [Download Link – iTunes]
