Shortcuts reliability is still a problem



And without any apparent mechanism to diagnose the cause.

How interesting!

I’ve never had this error on the iPhone, though I get it all the time on my watch. What shortcut are you running? Perhaps we can test it and help you out?

The second of the 2 screenshots is following David Spark’s recent video on Shortcuts: this is just a launcher shortcut, opening Phone, Mail etc. This works from within Shortcuts but not as a Widget.

Solved by a restart.

Ignore that last post. Whatever the problem is, it’s reappear after a few minutes

Activating Shortcuts through Widgets has 2 different behaviours:

  • Swiping over from the homescreen works, but
  • Pulling down Notification Centre and swiping across doesn’t work.

This is baffling.
