Workflow lets you create automated processes right on your mobile device to do anything from sending an email to getting directions from Google Maps.


Drag to build: The process for creating workflows through Workflow is straightforward and intuitive. All you have to do is select the app you want to use and drag it into the working window. Next, select an action and drag that in. Then just repeat this process until you have the process completed. Each time you make a selection, the options adjust to reflect that choice, making it easy to see what your next step should be.

Gallery: In addition to building your own Workflows, this app also lets you choose pre-made ones from the Gallery. These are broken down into groups like Location, Photos, Calendar, Utilities, and more, and whether you want to download them directly or just use them to get ideas of what to make yourself, they're a great resource.


Time to learn: Setting this app up and learning to take advantage of all it can do for you will take some time. There's really no way around that, but the investment will pay off in the end.

Bottom Line

Workflow is a useful and well-designed tool that helps you improve your efficiency by automating some basic tasks. It does take some time to learn how to take advantage of all the software has to offer, but once you have it down, the possibilities are almost endless.
