Get Sauce

Reverse Image Search for Manga, Anime, CGs, etc. with 10 Different Search Engines


Get Sauce makes it easy to find the sources of your images.

Run it directly or through a share sheet.

App Version

I made an app version that is faster and more convenient.
It requires iOS 14+ or Android 7+, so if you are using iOS 13, continue to use the shortcut version.

You may get confirmation alerts the first time you run Get Sauce or after an update. Be sure to allow all of them for the shortcut to run properly.

  • Run other shortcuts (Only on iOS 13)
    • Action-tracking scrolling significantly degrades performance. To prevent it, the shortcut re-runs itself in the background.

    • Save the configuration file (/Shortcuts/Get Sauce/config.json).
    • Browse and import your image files.
  • Clipboard
    • Check if the clipboard has contents.
    • Import images or URLs from the clipboard.

    • Take photos and import them.
  • Photo Library

    • Browse and import your photo media.
  • Internet (Required for each domain)
    • Used for various purposes such as checking for updates, obtaining image URLs, and calling APIs.

iOS 15

Apple is making privacy protection stricter in iOS 15, so you may encounter errors while running the shortcut.
Please go to Settings App → ShortcutsAdvanced and turn on the Allow Sharing Large Amounts of Data switch.


Latest Release Notes

This update is mainly for minor enhancements and fixes.

I’m currently working on fixing an issue where uploaded images cannot be searched on SauceNAO or IQDB, and experimentally changing the image hosting to ImgBB.
