  1. I just don’t get the Shortcuts App. Why do I need to use another app to set up things for Siri to do? If the Shortcuts app already has the shortcut, then why not just permit Siri to do the action directly? I know, I know… uses can set up more advanced/ complex links of actions. That is great for power users willing to “play around” in Shortcuts. I wonder what percentage of “regular users” actually use Shortcuts. I’m guessing it is VERY LOW.
