Theirs is truly no app that can compare to the sheer number of ways to interact with iOS on Scriptable. I was skeptical at first with this app because theirs so many useless apps for programing on the App Store and this one is 1000% better than the best I’ve seen. Seriously this app doesn’t cost a dime and I’ve been using it for the past couple of days and not ONE ad has opened, its amazing! Not to mention the possibilities with this app you can create timed notifications check sites. And best of all you can basically add Siri functions to your phone. Nothing else truly compares to this app if I could I would give it more than 5 stars.

There’s a few quirks here and there, but they’re only graphical, so your content is all safe and sound (from my experience so far). The documentation is 10/10, and the example scripts are wonderful for new comers with all the comments! More features would be awesome, so I look forward to what is up next for this app. I just tipped the dev a caffe latte (the best in-app purchase I’ve ever made), but I wish I could give them a handshake for an app well done 🤝

I wish I had more use-cases to use this! Maybe add a Marketplace or similar feature where people can add their scripts and you can install scripts from others. (Maybe also and .env variable feature that reusable scripts can get secret values that users don‘t want to share) 🎉 Keep it up! Amazing stuff!

This is an awesome concept. Being able to write automation scripts for your mobile devices, on your mobile devices. It’s awesome and wonderful and as a Javascript developer, two thumbs ups. I just got three recommendations for you, to bump this from a 4 star to a 5 star application: 1. Documentation I don’t think should be a secondary window. If you can make it a sidebar, that would be huge. 2. Maybe include some common JS documentation too. 3. This is probably asking for too much, but automation for our automation app. It gets really annoying writing out every word so if the Scriptable app could auto add ending curly braces, etc. If these three things were to be implemented, heck, I’d buy you as much coffee as you’d like :)

This is an incredibly well put together and well thought out app that is a virtual replacement for the Shortcuts app, assuming you know JavaScript. One thing I can’t seem to make it do is behave as an input/output step in the actual Shortcuts app. It might be nice to offer a script with a return value as a suggestion there.
