Comments

Doesn’t work great when apps are open next to Shortcuts in Split View – try opening one in Slide Over instead.

Useful for scripting the process of opening apps, doing tasks manually inside, then returning to Shortcuts to continue on. Works well to copy content in the resulting app and use Get Clipboard after this to grab that data.
