I’ve linked to Pythonista before as a nifty REPL to play with Python on
your iPad, but Federico Viticci demonstrates some crazy innovative ways
to use Pythonista as a scripting hub to automate iOS. Using the clipboard and
app launching URLs he’s dreamed up quite a workflow for automatic Markdown
preview and conversion, image manipulation, Dropbox integration…it’s
staggering. The piece is quite long, and there’s something in there for
everyone who wants to have a more customized workflow for text and data
processing on iOS.
