In today's episode we cover the new app called Charty (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1494386093) 



Discussion with Rodrigo: 


The project started in the end of 2019 and released the app today! 
What device or devices do you utilize the most for shortcut editing and creation?
I should be using my iPad more, but it always seems it’s too far to get, so I end up using my iPhone and trying everything here. It’s an iPhone 8 Plus that I plan to replace this year 
What kind of background do you have?
I have a degree in computer engineering and a masters in oil engineering, and my daily job is at Petrobras, the Brazilian oil extraction company. 
What got you started in Shortcuts?
I’ve always longed for a way to program on iOS! I’ve used Pythonista, and love it. But when Workflow came out, it was a breakthrough. Before it was acquired by Apple and even before iOS 13, workflows and shortcuts were pretty limited. But I remember setting up a whole double entry accounting system with my brother using only 1 writer text files and shortcut actions. 
Do you have any future update plans moving forward?
I do! I’m far from finished on Charty. I want to add area and bubble charts and histograms on a future release. Also, better themes, more icons and more shortcuts are all on the roadmap. 
Were you a user of the workflow app before it was purchased by Apple and turned into Shortcuts?
Yes! They were great ever since they launched, but to me, the breakthrough came with Magic Variables and Federico Viticci’s coverage. 
What do you think about the future of Shortcuts? And iOS?
For the iPhone, I hope for better automation features, especially ones that could run independently from users interaction. This way, the iPhone could become a real ethereal key for our connected world. 
What is your preferred method for support contact?
The best ways to reach are on Twitter, either @chartyios (https://twitter.com/chartyios) if you’d like to discuss the app, or @rodrigoaraujo (https://twitter.com/rodrigoaraujo) for everything else
