Dennis Crowley presented on Shortcuts for the iPhone and iPad at our February meeting.
Shortcuts is a new scripting tool for iOS. Although it has more potential than anything Apple has released recently, it is widely under appreciated. Many people have never heard of it.
Shortcuts lets you easily create and use your own scripts for commonly performed actions on iOS. You can also use many pre-existing scripts which are freely available.
Although Shortcuts is an Apple app, and is free, it may not be installed on your device by default. You can get it from the App Store.
Here are the slides from that talk. Note that many of the slides contain links to more information. The slides are shared in Apple Keynote format through iCloud.
