I take lots of photos with my iPhone. This Shortcut tells you how many photos you’ve taken so far this month and compares it to last month. A file is kept with totals for each month the Shortcut is run.
The Shortcut demonstrates the use of date calculations, finding photos based on some criteria and use of files. A file is used to keep a log of how many photos are taken each month. It is only updated though when the month is over, and a check is made that it hasn’t already got that month in. A neat way of doing this is to split the file into lines and check the last line doesn’t already contain the content you want to add.
A nice addition to this Shortcut would be to share the result to Facebook or Twitter and see how many photos you take compared to your friends.
