Discussion on: Using the x-callback-url with Shortcuts on iOS was great until... (it's been fixed!)

Hi! Do you have any news about the issue? Did Apple fix it? I do not have Pythonista and I know nothing about Python, therefore I am kind of stuck.

Thank you very much, anyways!

No good news about the issue unfortunately. Apple still hasn't fixed it and even more issues have popped up. Like now if you want to launch a Shortcut from your share sheet, there's a good chance it will timeout, forcing you to restart your phone.

I've been working on hosting my own Django server and swapping all of my x-callback-url actions with webhooks to that server. Doesn't solve for the share sheet timeout but I can no longer wait for Apple to fix this.

I don't have a ticket number or anything unfortunately, but I highly recommend the r/shortcuts subreddit. There's always great discussions and insights there.

Best of luck,
