Workflow 1.7.4 update restores missing features, adds Apple Music actions

Workflow has been updated to version 1.7.4, re-introducing features that were removed when Apple acquired the software, as well as adding new Apple Music actions. For example, it restores the Google Chrome and Pocket actions.

You can add music to your Up Next queue with the Add Music to Up Next and Clear Up Next actions. Get Distance now supports getting the distance from a specified location. The order of items passed from a Dictionary action to Choose from List is now preserved. There are also other bug fixes and minor additions.

In March Apple acquired Workflow, an iOS tool that lets you hook together apps and functions within apps in strings of commands to automate tasks. Workflow won an Apple Design Award in 2015. The app has been sold at the Apple App Store for $2.99; however, Apple is offering it for free.

Workflow allows you to automate items on your iPhone or iPad by connecting apps and actions. You can create complex workflows that you can start with a single tap. Workflow contains over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud Drive, and Health, to name a few.
