@ericgregorich Haha, no, it didn't come across the wrong way. It put a smile on my face as well when @Mtt made me aware of my blunder. Telling a Shortcuts expert about Shortcuts… 🤦
I'm sorry, @rosemaryorchard; please ignore the first sentence in my answer. 😊 Shortcuts are probably the way to go, though. iOS is pretty locked down, and apps are sandboxed, so it might be challenging to control another app from your app without using private APIs and/or jailbreaking the device.
