Apple’s Acquisition of Workflow to Change the Way iPad And iPhone Work.
Apple has signed the acquisition deal with Worflow – it is a tool that allows you to hook two apps and several functions within apps, in the form of string commands to automate the tasks. The financial details of the deal are yet to be disclosed.
Workflow was made under a small team including Ari Weinstein, former iPhone jail breaker. The app has been in the market for a few years now, and has quite a few similarities with IFTTT, while it allows you to perform multiple actions with one tap, through automation processes. It has gained a sizable numbers of downloads and users, since its inception.
Apple is taking over the app, including the members of its team Conrad Kramer, Ayaka Nonaka, Weinstein and Nick Frey. However, the app will remain available on the app store. The team is thrilled to join Apple.
Workflow is the recipient of 2015 Apple Design Award. It has super impressive accessibility features, considering it acts as a tool to build complicated macros. This is a major step by Apple which can change the way we use iPads, iPhones and Apple watches, this can help you use multiple features of different apps with a single tap.
A small team of clever students managed to build an app for iOS, which they themselves felt can’t be remade, and thus purchased it. It will be interesting to see Workflow’s seamless activation with Siri.
