Workflow is a must-have app for power iOS users as it allows them to string a bunch of actions into one that can then be executed using a single tap. With Workflow, the limits of the app are set by your imagination and not by what the app can do.

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.

Speaking of iOS 11, Apple has released the iOS 10.3 beta to developers, if you want to install any iOS beta version early, including upcopming iOS 11 beta, then register your iPhone UDID to Apple Developer Program here > and install the iOS beta version without any issue on your iDevice legitimately. It is possible that the team behind Workflow will work on making Siri more powerful or maybe they will work on further improving the accessibility of the OS for people with impaired vision.
