Popular automation app Workflow has been updated with a number of new features and now provides added support for over 20 new actions.

For anyone not familiar with the app, Workflow is an automation tool that lets users create a variety of workflows to accomplish tasks like creating GIFs from a series of photos, pulling images from a web page, translating an article, calculating a tip, and more.

Workflow 1.5
Users can create their own workflows or download them from the Workflow gallery and other third-party sites.

With the release of Workflow 1.5, the Workflow Composer has been optimized, a search function has been included, and a number of new app actions have been added, introducing enhanced support for integration with the iTunes and App Stores, Safari browser, Ulysses, and more.

For example, the dedicated "Search App Store" action lets users search the App Store and scrape details of selected iOS apps (such as price, release date, and artwork), which can then be passed into subsequent actions inside a workflow.

Additionally, Workflow includes new Apple Music actions that enable users to create playlists and add songs to an existing playlist in their Apple Music library. Support for project management tool Trello has also been included in the latest version.

Workflow 1.5 costs $2.99 and is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store. [Direct Link]

This is such a clever app and I'm glad it exists. But for all the time I've had it, played with it, and looked at other people's Workflows, I've never managed to do anything with it that's actually useful to me.

It took me a while to really find use from this app. One workflow I use a lot is one that @Jessica Lares helped me with.

It's a workflow that brings up a list of MacRumors sub forums and let's me pick the ones I want to open in safari. It may seem odd, but it's much more handy than manually tapping and holding on 6+ links and selecting "Open in new tab."
