Apple scooped up Workflow, one of the best utility apps for iOS

Apple this week confirmed the acquisition of Workflow, one of the best utility apps for iOS. Surprisingly, the company doesn’t plan to shut it down.

Workflow is one the best ways to get multiple apps and functions to work together in iOS—something Apple is famous for restricting. The thing that sets Workflow apart is its ability to effortlessly combine tasks from app to app in a smooth manner. Stringing along tasks allows it to create a powerful work flow. A few of the actions you could do with the app included: making animated GIFs, making PDFs from a Safari page, directions to the nearest coffee shop and attaining all images from a web page.

These actions could be accessed through the Workflow widget in Notification Center.

Workflow garnered wide praise over the past few years for its routine updates that take advantage of the latest updates to iOS. It also won an Apple Design Award in 2015.
