Open my Slide Over apps

Opens a preset sequence of apps you always want available in Slide Over.

This shortcut uses the updated Open App action’s new toggle for “Slide Over,” set with a series of my preferred Slide Over apps – the shortcut opens one-by-one, placing them in the popover multitasking area for quick access whenever I need them.

This isn’t the most elegant experience since the apps take a second to load, but it solves the problem well.

The actions are also ordered so that the first app will be at the bottom of the stack and the last on top (in reverse order overall) so they’re always sorted just how I want them when I pull open Slide Over.

I also designed this shortcut because you can’t always rely on your Slide Over apps staying there – now, if one gets moved out to a full-screen or Split View mode, I can move it back or replace it with a new instance (if the app supports it) using this shortcut.
