Apple Officially Acquired Workflow and Made Workflow a Free App from Now on to Improve Efficiency on iPad and iPhone

Apple has just officially acquired Workflow app and the Workflow team to improve efficiency on iPad and iPhone. This automation tool for iPad and iPhone has been made free since this acquisition.


Shenzhen, Guangdong -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2017 -- As one of the most popular and advanced technology giants, Apple has always been focusing on providing the efficiency of its iPhone and iPad upon both work and leisure entertainment. Today, Apple has finally acquired the Workflow, a tool that could hook together apps and functions within apps in strings of commands to automate tasks, so as to save time and improve efficiency. And since the acquisition, this app Workflow has been made free to all iPhone and iPad users.

Apple has always been trying to make things easier on both its computer and iOS devices, so as to let its customers get super experience. iTunes, one of the core products of Apple, is the top example. To help iTunes users easily organize and manage iTunes music library, Apple presets options like "Get Album Artwork", "Show Duplicate Items", etc. There are also wonderful iTunes cleaner software apps on iTunes Store to let people easily download, install and clean up iTunes music library. All these measures have been done to improve the efficiency of Apple's products.

Workflow is one of these measures that Apple has been longed for long. Workflow is a personal automation tool, enabling people to drag and drop any combination of actions to create powerful workflows for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. By far, Workflow includes over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud Drive, and Health, to name a few. All these actions could be integrated into Workflow for easier handling and time saving. It opens up infinite possibilities of what people can do with iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

The app was made by a small team that includes Ari Weinstein, a former iPhone jailbreaker, Conrad Kramer, Ayaka Nonaka and Nick Frey. In the past few years, it had built up a sizeable number of users and downloads on iTunes. In 2015, this app even won an Apple Design Award. Now, this app and the team together have been acquired by Apple. "We are thrilled to be joining Apple," said Weinstein in a statement. "We've worked closely with Apple from the very beginning, from kickstarting our company as students attending WWDC to developing and launching Workflow and seeing its amazing success on the App Store."

Apple has confirmed the acquisition and made another big important decision by making this app totally free from now on. According to Apple officials, "The Workflow app was selected for an Apple Design Award in 2015 because of its outstanding use of iOS accessibility features, in particular an outstanding implementation for VoiceOver with clearly labeled items, thoughtful hints, and drag/drop announcements, making the app usable and quickly accessible to those who are blind or low-vision."
