3. First Steps

If you open the app the first time, the app will generate an iCloud working folder, in which all the themes can be installed.

Initially, also a template theme will be installed, which can be used for testing the shortcut <—> app communication (optionally). Each individual theme is installed in a subfolder. E.g. the template theme is installed in the

How to run shortcut ?

  1. Browse to shortcut app and tap on the shortcut called HTML Sandbox V2 ( rarely, I am doing it )
  2. Run from app ( see screenshot below )
  3. Add HTML Sandbox 2 lockscreen widget to your lockscreen and run directly from there ( from time to time I am doing this )
  4. Set automation in the shortcut app ( this is my preferred way, updating the screen 6 times a day automatically ).

Option 2: Run shortcut from HTML Sandbox 2 app. Hint: Shortcut button in app dragable

Option 3 : run shortcut from lockscreen

In case the theme on your lockscreen / homescreen is not shown correctly. Kindly check whether the files are stored on your iPhone. Refer to screenshot below (in this example the files are not stored on iPhone and need to be downloaded).
