Frequently asked questions
What is iOS shortcuts?
Simpl. shortcuts lets you combine multiple steps across multiple apps to create powerful task automations.
A shortcut is a quick way to get one or more tasks done with your apps. The Shortcuts app lets you create your own shortcuts with multiple steps. For example, build a “Surf Time” shortcut that grabs the surf report, gives an ETA to the beach, and launches your surf music playlist. We design complex multi-step shortcuts to create smart business automations.
Shortcuts can automate a wide variety of things—for example, getting directions to the next event on your Calendar, moving text from one app to another, generating expense reports, and more.
Once you install a shortcut, you can simply summon Siri, then say the shortcut’s name to run it.
Shortcuts can be triggered in:
The Shortcuts app
The Home Screen on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
The Shortcuts widget on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
The share sheet of another app
Note: If you don’t see the Allow Untrusted Shortcuts setting, run a DEFAULT shortcut the shortcuts app and then go back to Settings.
settings > shortcuts > enable untrusted shortcuts. Apple defines 3rd party shortcuts untrusted because they are not liable for their function or results.

What is an automation?
Automation is a type of shortcut that’s triggered by an event, rather than manually. We design trigger paramaters based on your activity ie: your arrival, your departure, a setting on your iPhone, a time of day, and much more.
For example: when you leave your home trigger an automation that scans your appointments for the day and sends them all a reminder text or email.
How much do email lists cost?
An email marketing list can cost between $100 and $600 CPM (cost per mille, the price for 1000 email addresses).
The price of an email list depends on the quality of the emails and the type of person that is on the list. Here are some factors that affect the cost of an email list:
A consumer list costs between $100 and $400 per thousand emails (CPM)
A business list costs $600 to $1000+ per thousand emails (CPM)
List prices vary based on who is on the list. An email list that is more targeted is more expensive. Business to business email lists are more expensive that consumer email lists.
When you buy an email list, you typically only purchase a single use
Reminder: CPM stands for “cost per mille,” or cost per 1000 emails
