Apple announced Siri Shortcuts at WWDC 2018 as part of iOS 12. Siri Shortcuts allows you to streamline the things you do often. For us developers, this means we can expose Siri Shortcuts in our apps allowing users to perform actions quickly and seamlessly.
For the last month I have been working hard on a brand new course which will truly show the power of Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12. I am extremely proud to announce that my new course “Mastering Siri Shortcuts in iOS” is now available.
To celebrate the launch I am running a promotion where you can get the complete course for just $9.99.
Implementing Hot Coffee App Shortcuts Using NSUserActivity
In this section you are going to learn how to quickly create Siri Shortcuts using NSUserActivity. Shortcuts created using NSUserActivity allows users to open the app and come up in Siri suggestions.
Implementing Siri Shortcuts Using Intents
Intents provide you the most flexibility in creating shortcuts. In this section you are going to create Siri Shortcut for Hot Coffee app by using Intents. You can also going to persist the orders in NSUserDefaults and even place an order using custom intents.
Develop Custom User Interface for Siri Shortcuts
In this section you are going to learn how to create a complete custom user interface for Siri Shortcuts. This UI will be displayed inline when the user is ordering coffee without even opening the app.
In this section you will learn how to return custom responses from Siri Shortcuts. Custom responses create a more intimate and seamless experience for the user. Custom responses also provide additional information to the user about their order which can include the name of the order as well as the wait time.
Bringing Shortcuts into Your App
In this section you will learn how to add Siri Voice Shortcuts from right within your app. This means you don’t need to go to iPhone Settings and add the shortcut, you can complete the whole process from right within the app.
