    What I find curious about this acquisition is that after 20+ years, apple recently closed down their Mac automation division. So, does this imply no automation for macOS but only iOS. If so, that would be some turnaround.
    Yes, I was hoping WorkFlow might get ported to MacOS. I would have thought that the desktop is a better candidate for automation than the mobile.

    I'm amazed Apple didn't have this already with their history of Apple Script and Automator for macOS.  In fact I am surprised Automator.app for iOS doesn't exist.

    I bought this app and I've never used it once. I think it would be gracious of Apple to refund everyone's money.
    Interesting logic there.  🤔

    I downloaded this app to play with. It keeps crashing after the first few welcome screens. Using on a 5s.

    I thought Workflow for iOS was their answer to Automator for macOS.

    I use the Home ETA function all the time. Reads your location via GPS, determines time to get home in minutes, sends a text message announcing current location, and ETA to home your loved ones.

    It's similar but I want Siri to tell me when ever I leave the house to check I have a list of things I always forget snag is the list usually includes my iPhone! lol

    It has been out for about 3 years, not Apples fault you never used it.
