Workflow: Automator for iOS (Updated)

Workflow just came out for iOS, optimized for iPhone and iPad, and you should probably go and download it now.

What is it, you ask? Workflow is a new $2.99 app (for a limited time, as it will usually cost $4.99) that enables you to take actions and put them together in interesting ways with various options in order to generate your own workflows. If that sounds familiar, perhaps you’ve heard of OS X’s Automator?

These workflows are brilliantly illustrated by a GIF-creating and sending tutorial that you go through when you first open the app. Additionally, the app has a gallery of featured, and extremely helpful, workflows that you can download and use (and use them as great examples of how to create your own). These include a few that I’ve already set up (with their own Home screen icons no less!), like Tip Calculator, Share Location, and Cross-Post.

I’m only 15 minutes into using the app, but I’m already in love. Can’t wait to see what I, and others around the web, can do with it! If you haven’t already, definitely go get it.

UPDATE: You should also check out Federico Viticci’s Workflow review, and scroll to the bottom to grab his excellent shared workflows.
