How it works
How it works
- First the shortcut opens the camera app and sets it to the front-facing camera.
- The shortcut counts 5 shutter clicks.
- The shortcut runs a "For each loop" to flip each photo horizontally and save it to the camera roll.
- The shortcut presents a menu that lets the user choose to review the photos or exit the shortcut.
- If the user wants to review the photos, the shortcut runs a "For each" loop through each photo to display the photo and then delete it. The camera app automatically presents a menu to let the user confirm delete.
How to get started with Shortcuts
If you have iOS 13, you already have the Shortcuts app. That means that if you're on your iPhone or iPad right now, you can just click the Download button to download a shortcut. If you're not on your phone, you can email the link to yourself to download it later.
You can can start using most shortcuts right away, unless they work with another app that you need to have installed. That will be indicated on the in the post above. Once you have downloaded a shortcut, it belongs to you and you can make any changes you like. The shortcuts I make and publish here don't send any data back to me and I don't make any money from publishing them.
Once you have download a shortcut you can choose how to run it. These are your options:
- When you want to run a shortcut, open your Shortcuts app and all the shortcuts in your library will be there to choose from. Just tap on it.
- To save the step of navigating to your Shortcuts app you can add a shortcut to your iPhone’s home screen so it’s easily accessible.
- Some shortcuts will automatically show up in your phone’s Share menu under “Shortcuts”.
- In the shortcut’s settings you can “Add to Siri” by recording a phrase that will trigger it. Later you can say “Hey Siri” followed by that phrase and Siri will run that shortcut for you.
- You can also set up shortcuts to run automatically in the Automations tab in the Shortcuts app. You can select from a good variety of triggers such as "When my wake up alarm stops" or "When I arrive at work".
