ShareMenu 2.0, Now with Better macOS Integration and Support for More Input Types

Toward the end of last year, I created ShareMenu, a meta-shortcut that was designed to replicate the behavior of the old ‘Run Workflow’ extension: instead of picking individual shortcuts from the share sheet on iPhone and iPad, ShareMenu was a single shortcut that presented me with a colorful list of multiple shortcuts to choose from. Here’s what I wrote:

With ShareMenu, I only have one shortcut in the share sheet that presents me with a nicer list of shortcuts to run. It’s the same behavior of the old ‘Run Workflow’ extension, except it’s a list, not a grid. Yes, this approach requires an extra tap to run a shortcut in the share sheet because you have to tap ShareMenu first, then select a shortcut. However, I’m fine with it because, thanks to colors, I waste less time scrolling through the share sheet to find the shortcut I’m looking for.
