Open Workflow.is Links in Shortcuts

I've been asked several times since yesterday how to open a workflow.is link in Shortcuts. Currently clicking on one takes you to the gallery of Shortcuts and nothing else happens. If you copy the URL and use a very simple Shortcut then you can click the "Get Workflow" link and everything works as expected.

Backing Up Your Workflows/Shortcuts

It's almost time for the iOS 12 release and while I think that Shortcuts is going to be a separate app in the App Store to update to from Workflow, backups are a good idea. Of course backing up your device is a good idea, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to do a separate backup of your Workflows or Shortcuts that you've created - and maybe it's time to clear out your collection and start afresh (speaking as someone with over 800 Shortcuts, it's definitely time!).

Shortcuts Beta now open!

Earlier today a few little birdies told me about the Shortcuts beta being open to sign up for if you have a developer account. If I hadn't already had one I might have been tempted to sign up for it just for this!
