*Using Swift 4.2 & Xcode 10.2
I'm trying to make my application more feature-rich by allowing a user to create an object hands free. The app is designed to make the creation of certain object easier, so it would be great to allow a user to create a basic object by invoking Siri. However, I'd like the Siri functionality to be already integrated when the app is downloaded/run for the first time.
The issues I'm having with SiriKit and Shortcuts right now:
My application is used for creating and posting simple Plane objects with properties of name & color.
I'd like to allow users to initialize Siri hands-free and create this object like so:
"Hey Siri, create a plane with name Warkhawk and color blue"
The web is saturated with information on these new shortcuts, but I don't like that you have to "donate" the intent when you trigger the functionality in your app, and then go to settings to actually add it to Siri.
How can I utilize Siri to fit this use case without all of the added steps that come with a shortcut?
