Apple is refunding users who recently bought iOS automation app Workflow


At the end of last month, Apple acquired iOS automation and productivity app Workflow, along with the development team behind it for an undisclosed sum, and promised to make the once-paid app free for everyone on the App Store.

In a gracious turn of events, however, the Cupertino, CA-based tech giant has also decided to issue refunds to those who have purchased the Workflow app in the weeks before the Macrch acquisition.

Apple yesterday began sending emails to customers eligible for a refund, albeit without mention as to what constitutes as eligible time-wise. The email simply states that those who “recently” purchased Workflow will be getting a refund.

Here is a copy of one such email, published by MacRumors:

If you are not familiar with Workflow, it is, in short, a personal automation tool that lets you combine actions via a drag and drop interface to create “workflows” of actions on your iOS device. For example, you could set up a Workflow widget with a handful of buttons that let you perform complicated actions (like playing a certain playlist or getting directions to a certain place) with a single tap.

If you own an iOS device, you should really give Workflow a try (if you haven't already).
