Hello and welcome to the Shortcuts Catalog!

This is a public resource to help people get started with Siri Shortcuts and the Shortcuts app.

It’s made up of three main sections below:

  • the Shortcuts Library, a collection of starter shortcuts full of menus with hundreds of different ways to use them
  • my Member Shortcuts, my advanced collection of shortcuts for folks subscribed to my membership (more below)
  • the Action Directory, a documentation of the 300 built-in actions in Shortcuts available to browse outside the app
