A Quick Reminder or instant Shopping list
By using the Remind Me at Work feature in Shortcuts, when you reach a pre-selected office, you will get a reminder of those things. So for example, if you set up your office in a grocery store and add your shopping list when it senses you in that area, the functionality would remind you of the things you need to purchase.
Send your ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) to someone
You can tell anyone when you hit a position at the click of a button, in Shortcuts. The ‘Home ETA’ function basically takes your actual position; calculates how far you are from the pre-selected address and calculates the time when that location is reached. This is then immediately communicated to the pre-selected touch. All in one single tap.
You should use the ‘Scan GIPHY and Share’ functionality in Shortcuts if you’re one of those who talk a lot on WhatsApp or Messenger or some other instant messaging site. This helps you to enter the word easily, get the GIFs linked to it and post it directly on whatever site you want.
