Announcing the Siri Shortcuts Field Guide

Today I am happy to announce the release of the new Siri Shortcuts Field Guide. This is an all video field guide with over 3 hours of screencasts and 40 videos. It starts out basic and gets progressively advanced. You can stream the videos or download them, and there is downloadable content with links to all of the Siri Shortcuts that get built throughout the Field Guide.

With Siri Shortcuts, Apple has gone all in with automation on your iPad and iPhone. This Siri Shortcuts Field Guide helps you become the boss of your iPhone and iPad like never before. Using Siri Shortcuts, you can do things like:

  • Assign voice commands to your most common tasks, so there is not more hunting and pecking on the screen.

  • Develop more complex automations to run multiple tasks, or even drive numerous applications all at once.

  • Make your iPhone and iPad do more, so you don’t have to.

In addition to some mighty-fine screencast tutorials, each section includes downloadable content so you can add the covered Siri Shortcuts to your iPhone or iPad directly from the course.

Major topics include:

1. Introduction, the history of automation on iOS, and Field Guide overview.
