Sometimes it’s necessary to leave social media and quickly switch between apps: to check contact info, a note, or a location in Maps.
The goal of one sec is not to disrupt any productive workflows, that’s why we decided to offer a secondary Shortcut that can be executed when closing an app. This allows us to measure time between closing and re-opening the app, allowing you to re-open the app within certain time limits.
On your iPhone, open the Shortcuts app and go to the Automation tab.
Go to the Automation tab and select + to create another Personal Automation.
Scroll down and select App.
Choose the app you’d like to configure the intentional app switching for.
Be sure that only “Is Closed“ is selected.
At the bottom, select Run Immediately.
Then, continue to the next page.
Select New Blank Automation.
Tap Add Action.
Search for “one sec” and select 🅱️ Log app closing (for quick app switching).
Tap App (must be selected⚠️) in order to re-select the previously selected app.
The Automation won’t run without this.
Then tap Done and you’re done!
