Apple Shortcuts integration

Hook Pro users can now create Apple Shortcuts to automatically connect and navigate your most important information! For example, you can create new items and hook them together; focus on particular bookmarks; get bookmarks; and much more !

We will share some of our own shortcuts. And we are confident that the automator community will also share some of their Hook shortcuts. In fact, one of the world’s most famous Mac automators has had early access to Hook shortcuts .

For full details see Hook’s Shortcuts documentation.

Agenda app integration

On the integration front, Hook 3.8 improves your experience with Agenda - the date-focused note taking app. It’s a pleasure to work with the Agenda development team to help you connect your Agenda notes and projects to the rest of your digital world!
