I know this is a bit of an NSHipster move, but a new API from last week’s WWDC has been on my mind this week. SiriTipView.

Discoverability is hard enough on small-screen devices when you use standard controls. It gets more challenging when you add gesture-based actions and navigation. When you get to integrations with Siri, you’re at an “almost impossible to discover” level. 😅

Yes, some apps do a fantastic job of showing off their Siri integration, but it’s an often left-behind step in the design process. SiriTipView gives you a system-standard way of showing people how they can interact with your app through Siri. It replaces the old “Add to Siri” button, but I like it much more now that it can be informative rather than an action your app’s users need to perform.

I have come to use Siri more and more over the years, and I hope to see App Shortcuts gain adoption quickly and see this view appear in many of the apps that I use! Give it a look.
