Review: How to use Workflow to Automate your iPhone and iPad


Workflow is an amazing app that will thrill anyone who loves automation. Imagine automatically calling a friend just by tapping an icon on your home screen. How about instantly creating an animated GIF from some photos on your phone? Then there is the ability to compose one email to a bunch of friends with each receiving a personally addressed greeting. Or how would you like to choose anyone’s address in your phonebook and immediately see a Google Street View image of their house? All of this is possible with Workflow. This video walks through how to create some simple workflows to get you off and running!
