Federico Viticci, MacStories:
After a few weeks of experiments and refinements, I ended up reverse-engineering Shortcuts’ ‘Add to Home Screen’ implementation, which turns out to be an evolution of Workflow’s existing hack based on Safari and web clips. The result is Home Screen Icon Creator, an advanced shortcut that lets you create custom home screen icons to launch apps, custom shortcuts from the Shortcuts app, or specific actions for any of your contacts; the shortcut can also generate icons with solid colors, which you can combine with matching wallpapers to create custom home screen layouts.
The things Federico builds with Shortcuts are nothing short of mind-blowing. I’m going to dedicate some time over my holiday vacation to introducing new Shortcuts into my everyday iPhone and iPad activities.
