If you have not used the Shortcuts app as an iOS user, you have missed a lot. Shortcuts is a stock app for automation, which was first introduced in iOS 12. With more than 400 actions to customize, users have created many amazing shortcuts to ease your life.
There is a little learning curve to being able to create your own shortcuts, but you can use the premade shortcuts created by others. In this article, I will show a few shortcuts that are really useful.
Right now Spotify supports Siri commands, but does not currently support the Shortcuts app for creation of custom shortcuts. That is why Spotify will not show up in the shortcuts app. I have seen a few Shazam to Spotify shortcut, but they can only open the track in Spotify. I created this shortcut to add the song you are listenning to a Sp.
How to import shortcuts for the first time
When you launch the Shortcuts app, you will have no shortcuts. You can tap the Gallery tab at the bottom right where there are premade shortcuts from Apple Team. Here in thsi posit, we will talk about adding shortcuts from sources outside the Gallery.
Apple considers these shared shortcuts “untrusted” and you must allow untrusted shortcuts in Settings to import them. If you have never run a shortcut, you will probably see the option Allow Untrusted Shortcuts greyed out. In that case, you can follow the steps below to import shortcuts.
Step 1. Open Shortcuts app and create a shortcut. You can add any action in there.
Step 2. Run any shortcut.
Step 3. Go to Settings > Shortcuts and turn on Allow Untrusted Shortcuts.
You can also refer to the video below to see how to allow untrusted shortcuts.
My top 10 favorite shortcuts
For me, these 10 shortcuts are must-haves. You can add any shared shortcut below with the iCloud link based on your needs.
Do you ever need to download media files from social media sites? If you do, this shortcut is very helpful for you. It allows you to download videos, photos, and audios from any social media platform including YouTube, Snapchat, Dailymotion, Flickr, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
This shortcut allows you to add a variety of frames to your screenshots. You will be initially offered to download a small set of frames: all the sizes and colors of iPhone 12, and the iPad Pro 12.9″.
You can also add your own frames without the need to edit the shortcut. All you need to do is copy your frames to the Shortcuts/Screenshot Frames/ folder in your iCloud Drive, and run the shortcut to select the “Scan frames folder” option in the Configuration menu.
The shortcut can rotate the frames so you can easily have portrait and landscape frames based on the image you choose.
On iPhone, I can seem to watch YouTube videos in Picture in Picture mode even if I have YouTube premium. It is working on iPad though. Luckily, I found this shortcut, YouTube PIP. It allows you to open YouTube video directly in picture-in-picture from the YouTube app or Safari even without YouTube Red subscription.
You can control the video playback speed, quickly jump forward or backward in video. To be able to use this shortcut, you need to install a free app, Scriptable, from AppStore first. You just need to install it, nothing else.
Reverse Image Search
This Reverse Image Search shortcut makes it easy to search for anything related to an image instead of keywords. You can run this shortcut to select the image or go to Photos app to select a photo and run this shortcut from Share Sheet.
If you want to create custom home screen icons, previously, you can create a shortcut to launch the app and add the shortcut to the home screen. The problem is that the themed icons open the Shortcuts app before launching the actual app.
Luckily, in iOS 14, Apple introduced the ability to create profiles that launch apps without a redirect (except for system apps). This shortcut Icon Themer is to help you use this feature. With this shortcut, you can create a single profile for all your icons instead of tons of shortcuts.
Moreover, you can import themes instead of having to choose the icon manually for each app. You can also share the created profiles so that you can install them again later or share them with friends.
Seamless clipboard history
As its name suggested, this is a shortcut to help you manage your clipboard, but it is the best one that I have tried. This consists of two shortcuts “Save to Clips” and “Get Clips“. You can run Get CLips to copy multiple items to clipboard to paste later.
Memes bring us joy. This shortcut is to help you create amazing memes. You can upload your own images or use its tampclates. Please note that this Shortcut temporarily adds your custom image to your Dropbox and sends the public link to that image to https://memegen.link. The image will then be removed from your Dropbox.
Ultimate Spotify shortcut
If I remember correctly, you can ask Siri to play Spotify music since iOS 13. This shortcut allows you to do more than just playing on Spotify. By implementing Spotify API, this shortcut can do pretty everything on Spotify.
Thanks to this shortcut, I was able to make some of my shortcuts related to Spotify much easier.
This shortcut is quite simple, but I use it very often. You can run it directly to choose photos or run it from Share Sheet on selected images. You can combine images vertically, horizontally, or in a grid. It will give you a quick preview and then you can decide to save the combined image or try it again.
This is quite helpful for the blind. You can take a picture or run it on your existing images. It is not perfect to identify any object though.
Shortcuts that I made
Change Image Background
If you are not content with the background of a photo you took, you can easily remove its background and select another photo as the image background. You don’t have to pay for photo editing apps to do this kind of thing.
I use a free API key in the shortcut. In case it runs out of quota, you’d better include your own API key. You can refer to the video below to see how it works.
Spotify Playlist to Apple Music
This shortcut is to help you transfer playlist from Spotify to Apple Music. Obviously, you need to have Apple Music subscription for this shortcut to work. When you run it for the first time, you need to login to Spotify and grant Spotify access. You only need to do this once.
Apple Music playlist to Spotify
Like the previous one, this one is for transferring Apple Music playlist to Spotify. Download utorrent for mac free. It will work even if you don’t have Apple Music subscription or Spotify premium.
Shazam to Spotify playlist
If you like the song that you are listening to, you can run this shortcut to add it to any of your Spotify playlist or library. It will bring all your Spotify playlists for you to choose from.
Remove duplicate photos
If you have saved an image or video multiple times, this shortcut can help you identify them and delete the duplicates. However, this cannot be used to delete similar photos. Be sure to open the shortcut to edit the Album that you want to remove duplicates from. To learn more about removing duplicated photos, read this post.
This shortcut will encode your selected photos with base64, zip them, and save the files to the Hidden folder in your iCloud. After that, it will offer you an option to delete the selected photos. You can run this shortcut again to view the hidden images or restore them back to Photos app.
Even if others open the Files app to find the Hidden folder, all they see is just a few lines of code.

You do not need to install an app to create GIF because Shortcuts can do it for you. You can select any video or a few photos from Camera Roll to make a GIF. You can also edit the shortcut to make the GIF play faster or slower.
This shortcut allows you to convert any video from your Camera Roll or Files app. Supported audio file formats include M4A and AIFF. The AIFF is a lossless format, which will probably take a lot more storage space.
