Open Threads App

Use Apple Shortcuts to open the Threads app as a step of a posting workflow.

This shortcut is designed to be run as a function from another shortcut using the Run Shortcut’ action. For instance, if you have a shortcut that you use to facilitate posting to multiple social networks, you can use the Run Shortcut’ action in it, select this shortcut, and then every time it’s run it will open the Threads app for you.

That way you don’t have to recreate the actions for every shortcut that you want to use to open the app. Just call this one up every time you need to open Threads!

The origin and methodology of this shortcut are documented in this blog post.
