About

Nintendo's Splatoon 2 maps and game modes change every 2 hours, this shortcut makes it easy to stay up to date with the current game mode, whether it's Turf War, Ranked, or League mode.

The shortcut is easy to customize how you want to be notified:

  • Simple text based push notification
  • Push notification with rich graphic
  • Ability to save the graphic to display on a photo widget

Run an automation every 2 hours to receive a push notification or add it to your home screen to manually check what stages are in rotation.

Setup

Note: This set up process is new to version 1.04 with hopes to make the set up process easier. For steps 1-3, drag the specific preference to the top of the list, rather than typing out the mode.

  1. Choose which game mode you want information about:
    • Turf
    • Ranked
    • League
  2. Choose how you want to be notified: simple text-based, rich image-based, or no push notification:
    • Simple
    • Rich
    • None
  3. If you want to use a photo widget to display the Splatoon graphic on your home screen, choose which size, or none. (I recommend Widgetsmith)
    • Large
    • Small
    • None
  4. If you are not planning on utilizing the photo widget, you can skip the next steps.
    • Select which album this shortcut will save the current rotation's image to.
      • You will want to make sure your widget app points to the same photo album to display that image
    • Note: iOS 15 allows shortcuts to delete older rotation images without confirmation. In order to do so, you'll need to update this configuration in Settings
