Unleash your iPad's full potential: supercharge productivity with Shortcuts in Slide Over
I've been using my M2 iPad Pro as my primary computing device for a while now, and I'm absolutely loving it. I've figured out how to perform most of the tasks I used to do on my Mac right on my iPad, and I've even discovered a few tricks that have significantly enhanced my productivity.
One of my favorite tricks involves utilizing Shortcuts in Slide Over. This feature allows me to access my frequently used shortcuts without the need to switch between apps. I've also added my clipboard manager app to Slide Over, making it incredibly convenient to copy and paste text without exiting the app I'm currently working in.
To access Shortcuts in Slide Over, I employ the keyboard shortcut globe + backslash. This action brings up a list of my shortcuts, and I can simply tap on the one I need to execute. The process is remarkably swift and effortless, greatly streamlining my workflow.
If you're an iPad user, I highly recommend giving this trick a shot. It's an excellent way to save time and enhance overall productivity. Here are a couple of specific examples of Shortcuts that I have in Slide Over:
- I have a shortcut that copies the current date and time. This is great for when I need to add a timestamp to a document or email.
- I have another shortcut that has a list of text snippets that I often use.
I'm sure there are many other ways to use Shortcuts in Slide Over. The possibilities are endless!
