I love how some shortcuts are integrated into the share sheet. Not sure if this existed in iOS 12. Two I recently downloaded were a YouTube and a Twitter video downloader. They work really well, so slick. And I didn’t have to script a thing. I’d like to see Apple do more to promote shortcuts to the masses. I have family and friends who don’t even know this app or functionality exists. It’s great that Federico Viticci is a power user of shortcuts but I’d love to see its usage move beyond people like him. Shortcuts doesn’t have to be just for power users.

I’d say with the new parameters you can set and not having to jump around with variables will help newcomers. But I also believe it will remain a power user thing. Most people just use Facebook and instagram on their phones anyway.
