Described as "your personal automation tool," the Workflow app is designed to make things in your daily life a little bit simpler. The iOS app includes programmable actions for a mobile device's contact list, calendar, maps, browser, as well as social and document-sharing apps.

For example, Workflow is useful for getting directions to the nearest coffee shop or restaurant with the press of one button, automatically tweeting the song you're listening to or saving all of the images on a web page that you're browsing. The beauty of this app is that even if these actions aren't things that you would find useful on a regular basis, you can tailor Workflow to do exactly what you like.
