    Hi,
    1. Can Siri launch a home shortcut in the same way it opens an application when user says the name of the application?
    2. What do you recommend for the development of iPhone's apps using a Computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc...)? Any IDE for which platform?
    Thanks
    Matteo

    Thank you for the link, I've not read it before. So: only XCode, that works only under Mac.

    Question: can I use virtual machine to use XCode?

    Question: must I pay to develop an app with XCode and to try it on my phone (I don't want to sell the app)?

    Question: about Siri that can or cannot launch a home shortcut with voice can you help me? Can Siri do it?

    Thanks so much

    By Virtual Machine I assume you mean a dual boot computer. I don't know the answer from personal experience. If it can run MacOS I expect it can run Xcode but I'm not sure. Connection to iOS devices uses USB connectors so that has to work. But I really don't know.

    I think Apple now allows free accounts that can put apps onto a phone, but I haven't done that.

    Obviously this isn't a Siri forum but here's what I know. You can ask Siri to open apps so you can probably ask her to open a shortcut. You can say "Open Mail" "Open Settings" etc. What happened when you tried it?

    Thank you for your reply,
    I will try to use mac virtual machine with virtual box and XCode.


    About Siri, I have a home shortcut (that is a workflow shortcut created with the app Workflow) named "info" (the icon has the name "info") and no apps I installed are named like the shortcut, but I cant launch the workflow "info" when I say "Hey Siri, launch info". Can you suggest me something?

    Thank you very much
