That being said, I still occasionally have a problem with a shortcut and SIRI will say "Sorry, there was a problem with the shortcut". If I try again, the shortcut will usually work. Also try rebooting your iOS device. --Pete Problems still exist with using Shortcuts with SIRI I just wanted to add to my previous post about some of the shortcuts not working with SIRI. As I indicated, my shortcuts work with SIRI now almost all of the time since updating the Shortcust app itself. However I just had a situation today where, when trying to run one of my shortcuts using SIRI, SIRI responded that I didn't have an app by that name. This happened several times. I also got error messages when trying to run several of my other shortcuts using SIRI, so I opened up the Shortcuts app and ran the shortcuts manually by performing a single finger double tap with VoiceOver. I then locked the phone and re-opened it and, amazingly, SIRI began working to activate the shortcuts. Go figure. I guess Apple still has some work to do in making these shortcuts run more reliably with SIRI and VoiceOver. --Pete My shortcuts work directly by My shortcuts work directly by pressing them, but when I say “boost heating” this is correct phrase etc, it reply’s with “ boots hearing located in bath” and some other goolglegook, all my apps etc are updated daily, it just baffles me, I even reinstalled the shortcut , any other ideas ?
