Apple’s Shortcuts provide functionality similar to what browser extensions provide. Let’s find out how to download R Shortcut on the iPhone.
As stated, RDownload is not available in the “Shortcuts” store, so I have described the method to download it from its official website for iPhone.
1. Open the RoutineHub website in the Safari browser on your iPhone.
2. Tap the “Get Shortcut” button on the webpage.
3. In a pop-up menu, select “Open,” and the “Shortcuts” app will open.
4. Select “Set Up Shortcut” on the next page, and then “Add Shortcut.”
5. Now, simply go to “All Shortcuts,” and you will see R⤓ Download installed there.
Note: When I was trying to download “R Download” on my iOS device, I was getting an error after “Step 3.” It showed “Error Loading Gallery” multiple times. Eventually, I got to the “Add Shortcut” menu after four minutes. Hence, if you face the same error, wait for a while and try again.

How to Download Videos and Photos from the Internet with “R Download”
Now you don’t have to copy the link of any website or app and paste it on some other website to download it. It’s all easier with “R Download.” Here’s how:
I have tried this method on a popular platform. You can do it the same way on other platforms.
1. Tap the “Share” icon on any video or photo you wish to download.
2. Tap the “Share to…” option located in the left-bottom corner.
3. Scroll down and select “R Download.”
4. It will ask to connect to a website; tap “Allow.”
5. In the next pop-up, select “Allow Once” or “Always Allow.” For privacy reasons, I select “Allow Once.”
Now the selected video or photo will start downloading. Even if you close the app, it will continue to download.
You can use the same process on other popular social media platforms and apps. While trying the same method on other video streaming platforms, R⤓Download for iOS 16 also provides video quality options.
However, sometimes it also shows a “No URL Specified” error.
