Workflow bought by Apple: one of the best apps for power users is now free

Apple has acquired Workflow, a popular iOS app for automating common actions on iPads and iPhones.

The app, which fills a similar niche on iOS to services such as IFTTT on the web and Apple’s own Automator on desktop, was highly praised by its users, and by Apple itself, which commended its developers with a design award in 2015.

The acquisition is unusual, by Apple’s standards, since the app will continue to be available on the App Store. Now though it will be free to download for all users. Equally unusual is the fact that Apple confirmed the acquisition, with Workflow’s developer Ari Weinstein saying in a statement that he was “thrilled to be joining Apple”.

In its statement confirming the acquisition, Apple praised the accessibility features of Workflow, “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”.
