Apple-Owned Workflow App Updated With a Long List of Bug Fixes

Workflow, the automation app that Apple purchased back in March of this year, was today updated to version 1.7.5, introducing a long list of bug fixes.

There are fixes for a range of third-party apps like Trello, Google, Dropbox, and Evernote, along with updates to address issues in iOS 11. For example, Open In, Post to Instagram, Create Note, and Save with Transmit were all actions that were broken in the iOS 11 beta, but have now been fixed.


A full list of the bugs and issues that have been fixed in the update can be found on the Workflow website.

For those unfamiliar with Workflow, it's an automation tool that can essentially do anything. It allows users to create workflows to accomplish tasks like creating GIFs from a series of photos, pulling images from a web page, translating an article, posting photos to multiple social networks at once, calculating a tip, and more.

Since Apple acquired the app, it has been free to download. Regular improvements have been introduced, including bug fixes and new actions.

Workflow can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

After Apple bought it I thought they were adding some of Workflow's features to the next iOS(11), maybe to call the geeky side of some Android users or just to improve the system's functionality. Unfortunately there's no news of that. Maybe they just wanted to grab the talent behind the Workflow's team and as a kindness to the users who paid they let the app live.

They were too far ahead in the development cycle for iOS 11. Don’t forget that a deep automation integration would require all new APIs for third party devs etc. After the acquisition I assumed this would become an iOS 12/13 tentpole feature. iOS 11 shows in spades how Apple is committed to iOS productivity—automation will probably come like drag and drop did: late, but better thought out than before and system-wide.
