Tinkering with automating Things 3

Now that I am back on iOS full time I am happy to work again with Things. I have been setting up some Shortcuts and actions based on URL-schemes. The article Things on iOS: The Completely Guidle to Automations and Workflows and Cultured Code’s own Link Builder have been very helpful.

At the moment I have set up my most frequent actions with 3D-Touch in Launch Center Pro, which is a rather nice experience. For my needs I still found good old-timey actions with URL-schemes still faster than running a shortcut. But then again, I’m not that familiar with that one so far.

Currently I’m trying to figure out how I can integrate Things, Bear and some other apps with shortcuts. Luckily there is already quite a few actions and shortcuts floating around.

It’s fun to tinker with these things.
