Just started using iPhone shortcuts and I made one for the forum! So you can launch right from your home screen. Simple but convenient: [drive.google.com]

So it's a user script you can record and share? Does it have any security issues like if you have Siri on and someone on the TV gives a Siri command?

I haven't used it with Siri, but I think the phone needs to be unlocked for a script to run. It needs to access the 'Shortcut' app.

Am I crazy? As I recall when the iPhone was just out on the market, before there was an App Store, the ability to make an icon shortcut to a web page was a key feature.

I’m not sure why this is any better than my icon shortcut I use daily.

Yes! And now there's an even fancier, more complicated and advanced way to do the same thing!

That was a bookmarklet, a handy feature, but easily replaced with Favorites in iOS Safari.

Yes, but given bookmarks it seems a waste when, with a verbal command to Siri, Shortcuts can pause music, turn off one's screen, start video (and audio, of course) recording, disable Touch and Face ID, and send a text to a contact 'Send money, guns, and lawyers'.

That's a trade-off I can live with.
