Automation Server on app launch?

I’m looking for a URL scheme or Shortcuts action to open the Pushcut app with the Automation Server running on launch.

I’ve created a number of iOS 14 Shortcuts automations to periodically ensure Pushcut is running in the foreground (in case there’s a Shortcut that ends poorly, or some other reason Pushcut loses focus). But even better would be periodically launching Pushcut with the automation server running, just in case Pushcut crashes.

Hi, developer here - request noted!

Also, I can finally say that development on Pushcut has resumed, and that the list of “feature requests” should FINALLY end up in regular releases again. More details will follow soon…



I spent a ridiculous amount of time creating 288 Personal Automations on my old iPhone 6S so that every 5 minutes, Pushcut is run the foreground. But then it occurred to me this is only works if Pushcut hasn’t locked up or crashed—which is rare, but I want it solid!

Looking forward to the quicker development!

Thanks for resuming TestFlight. A nice surprise to wake up to this morning, Simon.
