I want a seamless way to launch a particular app at any moment on iOS, whether the device is locked, on the home screen or in a particular app.
Is there any way to create any kind of shortcut or functionality to do so?
Of course, simply going to the home screen and then clicking on the app is possible, but my desire is to give the ability to launch the app even more directly, without any intermediate steps.
I may be able to make an Apple Shortcut that launches the app, but it would only be accessible if there were a Share menu in the app I was in.
I think I could make a Siri shortcut, but it would have to be voice activated, and that’s not ideal for all situations.
So: is there any hack or possibility I haven’t thought about for quickly launching a specific app, from anywhere?
Right now, the only idea I have is being able to associate launching a Shortcut with a particular hardware functionality like tapping the back of the phone, clicking the power button and volume button at the same time, and so on.
