    The camera picked up some weird display "distortion" on the iPhone in this video. Not totally sure what caused this but my apologies nonetheless.

    Thanks for your input! Could you please create a step by step shortcut that sends a pre-defined txt message to a contact using a Siri trigger phrase ?

    Sorry but this version of SC is lame and weak. Nothing here that is useful. Most of this stuff you can just ask Siri to do.

    Very generic video, those are the most common shortcuts, not only I found it generic but also you came late

    Hey guys, I recently created a fitness channel, but I shoot my videos on the IPhone X. Can you guys recommend a good budget camera?

    Who gives tips?
    I’ve never given a tip in the last 26 years of my life.

    Terrible speaking cadence. Speak naturally like we are sitting at a table over a coffee, not like you are reading a run on sentence filled with commas. You are trying to duplicate EDIT–>SPEECH–>START SPEAKING on the Macintosh. For example: this sentence, 0:30. Rising and falling pitch run on sentence. You'd fail public speaking.

    Hmmm, shortcuts isn’t as simple as I expect from Apple, it takes a bit of learning to create your own. Not as easy as googles routines but I like it


    (October 9, 2018 - 3:47 am)

    …or you could just say "Hey Siri, calculate 20% of $55.27" and she then gives you the tip amount and then the added total with tip. No need for you to get a shortcut app for that.
