Shortcuts Watch App


#1

Apologies if this has been raised elsewhere in the forum but is there any hope that we will see a Watch app for Shortcuts like we had for Workflow? I think Apple took a big step backwards when they dropped the Watch app.
Is there any alternative to Shortcuts that does work on the Apple Watch? The old app made it possible to select a Workflow from a list without invoking Siri (which is often inconvenient). It also made possible asking for input to a script. Moreover, some workflows were capable of running entirely on the Watch. Hard to believe that Apple came out with the Series 4 and eliminated one of the most useful Watch apps at the same time.

There’s always hope, but no one apart from Apple will know for sure.

As for alternatives, nothing is going to give you that equivalence yet.

Right. And I was thinking about how much of a pity that was.

My answer is “not as great as it seems, but still substantial”. My experiments with NFC tags show me that works better - if you have the phone handy. But if you don’t then of course you want the watch.
