Influencers, Use Those iOS Shortcuts Instead of Apps!

Influencers, Use Those iOS Shortcuts Instead of Apps!

I use iOS Shortcuts for various DearMishu influencer related tasks. I’m talking about those very useful pieces of code (also called Siri Shortcuts) that execute tasks without launching any apps, such as Meme creation and image editing. These are so awesome for influencers’ daily tasks. If you use iPhone or iPad, I want you to start using some awesome iOS Shortcuts too!

With iOS 12 or later, Siri Shortcuts let you quickly do everyday tasks, and with the apps you use the most — all with just a tap or by asking Siri.

Below are my latest recommended shortcuts for influencers:

1. Meme Generator iOS Shortcut

There are dozens of different Meme generators and here is the one I use – you can launch that Shortcut right from iOS Shortcuts menu. There can’t be simpler piece of code than that – look at the screenshots:

And by the way I used another iOS Shortcut to create the above picture, it’s a shortcut that helps combine pictures to one picture (photo collage). Here’s how the Combine Shortcut works:
