We're continuing adding feature requests to Pushcut, and this month we've got improvements to Widgets, Notifications and the Automation Server.
In the main app we've added support for a default view, this continues from the quick actions to allow you to jump straight into specific pages. Because folks really liked that, we also added a Shortcuts action and a URL scheme.
We've improved the preview of widgets to give you a visual indication of how big each widget size is—and on iPad you can preview the X-Large widget too.
You can also re-order widget components now, so if you want to take advantage of the search we've just added to SF Symbols, you don't have to re-build your widgets just to add a symbol.
Something lots of people asked for was the ability to get the status of your server which we added in 2022.7, and so this month we took it a step further by adding notifications when your server status changes! And then because we were on a roll, we added a Shortcut to control your server state too—you could use a Shortcuts automation on your automation server to stop it running when you start a particular focus mode, or start it running at 9am every day.
Notifications are where Pushcut started—and we definitely haven't forgotten that. We've added support for threading notifications (
threadId) and base64 encoded images (
imageData) to the Notifications API. We also updated the Send Notification and Show Notification to support images!
