Create an action. Creating an action can be done by tapping the plus icon at the top or an empty spot on the app screen. You can then view all actions and select one to use, review those only for apps you have installed already, or create your own.

Tap an action

Tap an action. When you are ready to use a shortcut, just tap on it. If you long-press on an action, you can share it, copy it, or add it to your home screen. You can also rearrange the actions in the order you would like them to display on the app screen.

Use dynamic favorites. Alloy will dynamically generate your favorites, which can be accessed by tapping the star. For those actions you perform the most, your habits, and your location, those favorites are automatically created for you.
