More often than not, we have to perform a task on our iOS device(s), that involves some kind of repetition. Whether it be sending a template message (“Can you pick me up at 2pm?”), making a phone call or viewing the local weather report. Either way this can be a tedious and time consuming process - one which can easily be avoided!
Thats were the Actions app can help, by enabling you to create and customise one tap actions for your everyday needs. Create an action to view the news, send a text message, find the nearest restaurant and much more, all in one app. More Info »
The user created actions are sorted into a neat list on the home section of the app. All actions have an associated user created tag, this helps with sorting actions into different categories and can help when searching through your actions.
The main emphasis of the app is speed, from creating an action to running one is a matter of seconds. Whats more, you only ever have to setup your desired actions once, after that one tap is all you need. To help maintain ease of access, the Actions app provides four main ways of running any action: via the main app, quick access widget, action notification or with a simple spotlight search.
How does the Actions app differ from its competition?
A lot of the other automation apps on the iOS App Store, rely on directing you to another app to perform a particular task. Very few of them actually allow you to complete the task at hand without having to switch between a slur of different apps. The Actions app differs because it allows you to perform a lot of the common everyday tasks in one app (no more app switching, copying/pasting text, etc..).
