Advanced Concepts Overview

This section addresses more advanced concepts and tools for Shortcuts.


This is the second edition of the Shortcuts Field Guide, and one of the things I'm really happy about including with this new edition is the Advanced Concepts section. Now, when Apple first released shortcuts, some of this stuff wasn't all that reliable, and I wasn't really convinced. I wanted you to put them in your shortcuts because it wasn't working that well, but everything is pretty solid now. So I was able to include all sorts of cool tricks in here like Repeats, Base 64, URL Schemes, just a bunch of wacky, cool tricks you can do with Shortcuts.

This is the advanced course section. So go through this slowly, make sure you understand it, and you will find tricks you can use in your everyday shortcuts here.
