I’ve been loving Scriptable lately after I discovered a few impactful use cases for my own life:
Using Scriptable’s notification support has opened up a super convenient way to run automations at scheduled times with minimal taps required (one example: a notification as a reminder and quick way to send a message that I’m heading home from work at my usual time)
Automating the reading of large pieces of text (such as an ebook)

A few quirks:
- I’m using x-callback-url integration to offload both dictation and speaking to Shortcuts. Shortcuts allows for hands-free dictation as well as pitch/speed control for speech.
