Apple Acquires Workflow, a Powerful iOS Automation App for iPhone and iPad


As reports from TechCrunch, Apple has acquired a powerful iOS automation app Workflow for iPhone and iPad that has already issued a statement confirming the deal to TechCrunch and will be finalized today.
I haven’t been able to get financial details for the deal, but if I come up with them I’ll update. As far as I know it was a solid payday for the team and small upside for investors. Workflow had raised an un-announced seed round of what we’re hearing was in the range of a couple million from Lowercase, Eniac and General Catalyst.

Workflow is similar to the popular IFTTT service that allows people to group together a bunch of actions that can allow them to perform complicated tasks with one tap and app was made by a small team that includes Ari Weinstein, a former iPhone jailbreaker.

Here’s a statement from Workflow’s Ari Weinstein:
“We are thrilled to be joining Apple,” said Weinstein in a statement. “We’ve worked closely with Apple from the very beginning, from kickstarting our company as students attending WWDC to developing and launching Workflow and seeing its amazing success on the App Store. We can’t wait to take our work to the next level at Apple and contribute to products that touch people across the world.”

Apple confirmed the deal, and has said the following about Workflow:
“The Workflow app was selected for an Apple Design Award in 2015 because of its outstanding use of iOS accessibility features, in particular an outstanding implementation for VoiceOver with clearly labeled items, thoughtful hints, and drag/drop announcements, making the app usable and quickly accessible to those who are blind or low-vision.”

Workflow includes over 200 actions, including those for Contacts, Calendar, Maps, Music, Photos, Camera, Reminders, Safari, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud Drive, Health, and others.
